I'm using the Milonic menu - an older version.  I need these links to open in a new window (target=_blank)

How can I modify this code?  I've tried to add target="blank" however it's not working....

"productsmenu",                   // Menu Name - This is needed in order for this menu to be called
77,                          // Menu Top - The Top position of this menu in pixels
0,                          // Menu Left - The Left position of this menu in pixels
137,                          // Menu Width - Menus width in pixels
1,                            // Menu Border Width
,                             // Screen Position - here you can use "center;left;right;middle;top;bottom" or a combination of "center:middle"
EasySampleStyle,              // Properties Array - this array is declared higher up as you can see above
0,                            // Always Visible - allows this menu item to be visible at all time (1=on or 0=off)
,                             // Alignment - sets this menu elements text alignment, values valid here are: left, right or center
"Fade(duration=0.2)",         // Filter - Text variable for setting transitional effects on menu activation - see above for more info
0,                            // Follow Scrolling Top Position - Tells this menu to follow the user down the screen on scroll placing the menu at the value specified.
0,                            // Horizontal Menu - Tells this menu to display horizontaly instead of top to bottom style (1=on or 0=off)
0,                            // Keep Alive - Keeps the menu visible until the user moves over another menu or clicks elsewhere on the page (1=on or 0=off)
,                             // Position of TOP sub image left:center:right
,                             // Set the Overall Width of Horizontal Menu to specified width or 100% and height to a specified amount
0,                            // Right To Left - Used in Hebrew for example. (1=on or 0=off)
0,                            // Open the Menus OnClick - leave blank for OnMouseover (1=on or 0=off)
,                             // ID of the div you want to hide on MouseOver (useful for hiding form elements)
,                             // Background image for menu Color must be set to transparent for this to work
0,                            // Scrollable Menu
,                             // Miscellaneous Menu Properties
//Products menu

I don't think you can.  This code contains the info to put in the href = you need to modify how the href is generated - so it would not be this code, but other code that would need to be modified.

Actually it worked when I put the target=_blank immediately after the link href.

You can see it working here:

No objections, but it is strange that you first say you tried that and it did not work and then that was the solution...

When I first said that it didn't work, it was the double quotes that were throwing it off.  When I removed them, it worked.
