solution in NoteTab's "Known Issues" Help section after being
directed to it by another post in this forum that I discovered. Here
If you attempt to open multiple files associated with NoteTab with
the Windows Explorer "Open" command, you may encounter problems if
NoteTab is not yet running and is configured to disable multiple
instances. Usually, in this case, some of the files will not be
opened in NoteTab. The solution is to use the "Send To" command
instead. The Utilities Clipbook library includes a command
[under "NoteTab Shortcuts"] to create such a shortcut to NoteTab.
The "Send To" command has the advantage of being much faster and
more reliable than the "Open" command when you have several files
selected for opening.
