Topic "How do I get multiple windows open?"

Author Message

WinSCP has just upgraded itself to 5.5.6 (I don't know what version it was before).

It now opens multiple sessions in multiple tabs in the same window, rather than opening multiple windows.

Which means that I can't see two sessions at once.

Which means that I can't compare, visually, the filing systems on two remote machines at once.

Which is what I do a lot of.

How do I return to the previous functionality, of having a separate window open for each session?

See preference option [i]Open new externally initiated sessions in existing window[/m]:
(you need to upgrade to 5.6.x for that)
