Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-10-04 20:13:23 UTC
The Open With options don't work when file is open in another editor. It simply focuses that editor. It should close the other editor (maybe after showing a warning dialog), or disable the Open With commands when the file is already open.
