Unlike templates, there is no URL you can hit to Fork a Pen or Project. There are some boring technical reasons for that. It’s us, not you 😉
But because there is no URL, you can’t, for example, right-click the Fork button and “Open in a New Tab” like you might want to. A bit unfortunate, as it’s sometimes useful to leave the original Pen open while you mess around with your fork.
There is a trick to do it though, and it just exploits normal browser functionality.
- Click the Fork button normally
- The URL will change and the window will reload with your new Fork
- Command/Control click the Back button in your browser
- That will open the previous page in history in a new tab, which will be the original Pen
