Limit on Opening Multiple Files

Hi All, There seems to be a limit on the maximum number of files I can tag and open from windows explorer - which is 15 - if I tag 16 then the open option from the right click menu is not shown. Anyone know if the limit is correct or a bug ? Can the limit be increased ? 

Thanks,

Nigel.

Hello @Nigel Flowers,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

Is this only happening with PDF files?

Have you also tried selecting .txt and Word documents if Open context menu is also missing?

Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

Opps, it appears that this is a Windows limitation as I have the same issue with opening multiple word/excel files. 

thanks for your help,

Nigel.

In fact just found this workaround which has solved the issue for me :

Open regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

Add this case-sensitive DWORD (32-bit) key:

MultipleInvokePromptMinimum

Set the value to

16

16 is not a hard number, but actually indicates "unlimited", so putting in 17 probably will not work.
