When you click a link, it opens another tab and puts a link to the previous one on it's top.

It solves my problem, but I can't find what it's named (english is not my 1st language).

Here's an example taken from YouTube. I'm not interested on the resizing part, as mine will be fixed size.

Any help?

    Terms that come to mind are cascaded or nested slideout sidebar menu Commented Feb 7, 2019 at 14:15
  • I would go with "Unexposed dialog menu".. as Material UI has classic drop down menu with this style where items are shown right away, and its called "exposed dropdown menu"

    technically speaking, it's a multi level menu, only that instead of keeping inactive levels visible it completely hides them. Kind of tympanus.net/Development/MultiLevelPushMenu/index3.html#

  • Yup I agree with @Devin. It's a type of a multi-level push menu. Commented Feb 7, 2019 at 23:08

I agree with @Devin and the terminology that could be used is Nested Multi-Level Push Menu.
