I'm opening a .pdf file from the command line in Chrome (Windows 7 64 bit). Every time the pdf file changes open the pdf to view it, but I don't want Chrome to open it in a new tab every time.

Is there a command line argument I can use to stop a file opening in multiple tabs?

You might want to consider using chromi possibly with its command line tool chromix which can tell Chrome to create new tabs and reload existing tabs. – Dan D. May 11 '13 at 23:52
