    hello!

    when I select/highlight many txt files in WinXP Windows Explorer (inside a folder or desktop) and I click via context menu to open them, it opens only one instead of all

    is there a fix for this?
    thanks!

    Hello user,

    I tried with EmEditor v11.1.7 with Windows XP+SP2, and if you right-click on Explorer, and select “Open With” > “EmEditor”, only one file is open. However, you see the same behavior with Notepad, too. If you select multiple bitmap images and select Open with Paint, the same. I think this is the Windows behavior. Please select “EmEditor” on the context menu instead.

    Thanks!

    I dont think it’s a limitation by Windows XP.

    If you select two .doc files and you right-click and choose “Open”, they will both open in MS Office Word (seperate windows for each document)

    same with .pdf files, that will open with your default pdf viewer (for me, PDF-XChange viewer, will open all of them in seperate tabs)

    Did you try Notepad and Paint? Did you try “Open with” commands instead?

    with the “Open with” command, indeed it opened only one file

    however it opens all of them when I choose the “edit” command

    so I guess I have to use the “EmEditor” command in the context menu

    how do I enter the “EmEditor” command in context menu, because it’s missing now

    thanks!

    If one would use the help > Search tab: search for “context”

    One would find:

    – Dialog Boxes
    – Customize dialog box (found e.g. at Tools menu)
    – Shortcut tab
    – [More Shortcuts…]
    [X] Add a shortcut to the Context Menu on Explorer check box

    .
