In Windows XP, when you selected multiple files in Explorer, then chose an app from the context menu (Open With, etc.), that app would open the selected files in the selected order. In Windows 7, it doesn't seem to do this. It opens them in an unpredictable order. How can I select multiple files in Windows 7 Explorer in such a way that when I open them, they will open in a predictable order?
The only solution I found is to open multiple files within the app, not within the explorer. Tried this with notepad and adobe reader, multiple txt and pdf is in random order when open in explorer, but always sorted by name, size, date or whatever i sorted them in "Open" dialog window if I open multiple files through "File" > "Open" menu in app. Hope this workaround will be helpful.
