  • ways to Open multiple from Explorer ?

    Hello everybody! I've been using Foxit 5.4.3 for a long while. (Still like the old version because its small and fast. Also fewer visual distractions.) I prefer to use windows explorer and select (highlight) a goup of PDF files, then click at Open with Foxit. On one computer, this correctly opens all the files in a single window, neatly tabbed. Perfect. On another computer, only 1 file opens in Foxit. No tabs. No multiple documents. I've tried changing Edit, Preferences, Documents, Allow Multiple Instances (unticked), BUT this seems to have no effect on this issue. TIA's for any tips or clues to get this working correctly. EDIT. It seems a windoze restart is needed hto fix this "feature". D'oh. Billy Gates taught a generation what to do if anything goes wrong. Ctrl-Alt-Del.

    Hi macbookpro,

    ​I could open multiple PDF document by highlighting a group of them then right-clicking on "Open" with Foxit Reader 7.0.6/Foxit PhantomPDF 7.0.6. May I know what is your OS type? Mine is Win7, 64-bit. How about the result if you open Foxit Reader program first then drag the group of the PDF files into Foxit Reader window? Please let us know.
