    ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "alert", " alert(' You will be redirected to the Portal.'); window.open('http://www.newurl.com/');", true);

    It opens in a new tab. 

    I want the same tab.

    Simply change window.open with window.location.replace and your redirect should stay in the same tab.

    Not directly related but another popullar option is to have an icon following the link or the button (seems to happen after a postback ?) which give the information without having to close an additonal message.

    For example at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/introduction, "Mobile apps" and "Games" are followed by an "external" icon.
