Similar to How do I stop Google Docs from opening documents in new tabs?, how do I open internal links within a Google Doc in the same tab?

Specific scenario -- I've manually created a link to a header, I click on that link, it gives me the pop-up where I can either click, remove, or edit the url. I click that url, which is a link to an anchor in the same document, but it opens a new tab.
