    Opening multiple options in Windows 8


    Hello All,

    Using Windows 8.1. If I have a notepad, say Untitled 1, already open in Windows, then how can I open a fresh Notepad?

    Every time I am clicking on Notepad.exe, the same Untitled option is opening.

    Any support?

    If you start notepad from the run dialogue you'll get a new instance: + R then type notepad and press enter.

    The title will remain as Untitled until you save it as something else.

    Or, with a middle button mouse, just select notepad with that. That can open multiple instances of notepad and other programs

    Thank you all.
    It worked.

    Both on right click on the Notepad and opening a new instance as well as clicking on Window+R.

    Thanks
