Can I control when new tabs are open?

I’m prone to keeping my tabs fairly organized and minimal, so when I have a document open and want to go back to my project home with list of other documents I’m confused why it opens that in a new tab. I’m clicking the avatar circle or the team name and both open those in new tabs. Sort of a UX basic that you don’t do that unless you convey to the user that will be the action. Is there any way to control this?? Thanks!
