Windows command line opens another taskbar instance

Windows command line opens another taskbar instance

Postby sam.selikoff on Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:52 pm

I've changed my PATH variable to allow me to open files in sublime from the command line. The problem is, when I do this (in Windows 7) it creates a new instance of sublime in my taskbar.

For example, I may have a sublime window open already. If I open additional files/folders from the file menu, they stack on the current taskbar instance as they should. If I open a file from the command prompt, an entirely new sublime icon appears on my taskbar, with copies of all my current files open.

Has anybody run into this, or know how to fix it?

I don't mean to bump up an older post, however I am having this same problem. I assume this is a problem with the exe just opening a new one instead of looking for an already open one. Is there a simple fix to this?

I suspect this is related to this setting:

// OS X only: When files are opened from finder, or by dragging onto the
// dock icon, this controls if a new window is created or not.
"open_files_in_new_window": false,


My question is Why OSX only?
When will this be an option in Windows?
