[Solved] Everything opens in tabs

Post by JamesInSanDiego » Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:08 pm

Recently I installed macOS Mojave 10.14.4 Beta. Since then every file I open in GraphicConverter, Preview and the Finder always open in a Tab in the same Window. I think I have created a conflict among the application's Preferences but I cannot figure out how to undo things. My preference is to have all files, whether it is opening in GraphicConverter, Preview or the Finder, to always open the files in their own Windows. I don't want tabs.

Any suggestions? Thanks,

James

Just set the option "Prefer tabs…" in the system settings -> dock to "Manually".
