Open a file from File explorer overrides "Reopen last open maps"

I always use "Reopen last open maps on startup". Very useful! (irritating that it doesn ́t work now in MM16).

But anyway, sometimes it happens that I open a file from FIle Explorer and to late I realize that MM is not running. Then MM opens with only that file.

But wouldn ́t it be great if MM checked if Reopen feature is checked, and ALSO opened the last files, together with the file I opened from File Explorer?

Hi All, 

The issue with 'Reopen last open local maps on startup' has been addressed in MindManager 2016 service pack 1, which is planned to be released this month.  I have personally tested the update and have verified this feature is in fact working again. 

We can consider enhancing MindManager to also reopen last open local maps when MindManager is launched by opening a file from the file explorer in a future release. 

Best, 
Marian

I very much support this. You always realise you need this the split second after you click on the map file in explorer. It's also relevant to maps attached to emails.
