Before switching to newly opened tab/window you should first get current window handle and store it into a String variable. Do your operation with newly opened tab/window. Switch back to original window by using switchTo() function.

String currentWindowHandle = driver.getCurrentWindowHandle();

//Do your operation of working with newly opened tab

driver.switchTo().window(currenttWinddowHandle);

 

Hope that helps.
