Topic "How to stop new sessions opening in same window?"

Hi,

I recently upgraded to the latest version of WinSCP. So far, so good - I love the changes. One thing that is REALLY annoying though - is that it puts all of the new sessions in the same window. I liked it before where you would open a new instance, and it would start a seperate version of WinSCP. This way, I could group multiple tabs for the same site in one instance, then several versions in another one (for a different domain). How can I change this back in the latest version?

The problem only seems to occur when using the "right click" on the pinned icon on my computer (win7). If I manually open the program, then select a session from there - it opens in a new window just fine (as I want it)

Any ideas?

TIA

Andy

You can turn off preference option Open new externally initiated sessions in existing window:

Thanks for the reply. I just took a look in my settings, and I can't find that option. I can see everything, apart from from the 2nd option in Misc, as per your image:

I checked if I'm on the latest version, and its saying I am - what else could it be?

TIA

It's actually available in the latest beta version only.
I didn't realized that when replying before.
