The first time I clicked on one of the Web Reports on the Software Updates page I was asked which Reporting Server to use for running Reports against and whether I wanted to “Open reports in a new window“. I decided to leave the checkbox unchecked and now whenever I click on any of the reports it opens them within the Admin Console rather than in the Report Viewer.
How do I configure my Reports to open in a new window?
Not immediately obvious this one but all you need to do is:
1. Right-click the relevant “Site Database (<site_code> – <description>)” item in the root of the Admin console.
2. Select “Report Options“.
3. Check the “Open reports in a new window” checkbox.
4. Click “OK“.
