  1. Access the Learning admin side >
  2. Go to Content > Content Objects > Search > Edit >
  3. Navigate to Launch Method > Uncheck the box - Launch in a New Browser Window > Apply Changes >
    • Note: The Launch In New Browser Window will only be visible if the Enable Inline Content Launch Configuration setting under Global Application Settings is enabled. Even if this global setting is disabled, this does not disable the setting for all content objects (check the "See Also" section for detailed information).
  4. Launch the content and it will be embedded in the application.

[IMPORTANT] The contents with launch method "Browser" will not open in the same window if the "New Course home" (enableCourseHomeBlended) is enabled. This is an expected behavior.
