HyperLink control:

The HyperLink Web server control is used to create a link to another Web page. The text in the HyperLink control is specified using the Text property. We can also display a image on this control instead of text.

ImageUrl - gets\sets The image to be displayed in the hyperlink.

NavigateUrl - The URL to navigate to when the hyperlink is clicked.

Target - The target property allows us to set new page/content to be displayed in a new browser window, same window, etc. The values are as follows:

_blank: displays the linked content in a new window without frames.
_parent: displays the linked content in the immediate frameset parent.
_self: displays the linked content in the frame with focus.
_top: displays the linked content in the full window without frames.

Drag a hyperlink control on to the form. Select the control and open it's properties window. From the properties window set the NavigateUrl property to your favorite website (in the form http://www.google.com), Target property to _blank and Text property to some text.
