Description
As of 2.0 Beta 3, a folder specified via the command line is opened Better Explorer as a new tab. If no window is already open, it opens a new window which shows the tabs from the previous session. I think it would be better to allow emulation of the Windows 7 (and earlier) version of Windows Explorer. This would always open a new window with no tabs from previous sessions. Such behavior allows users to drag and drop files between windows. As part of this, consider allowing users to hide the tab bar when only one tab is present in a window.
Todos (0 / 0)
There is already an option for it to not load the previous session on startup. (File > Options > Shell > Restore your previously opened tabs on startup).

Although having a command-line option to disable it for one instance would not be a bad idea.

Or maybe a preference not to remember the previous session.

Would you like a command-line option that will not tell Better Explorer to
open your previous session when you open a new window?
