Open command


Opens an existing file.


This command displays the Open dialog box, and allows you to select a file you would like to open with EmEditor. Normally, the file will open in a new tab. However, the file will open within the current tab if the current tab is untitled and no characters have been typed. If you wish to open a new file within the current tab every time, use the Close and Open command.
