Can I disable the multiple windows in 17?

Is there a preference setting that will let me disable multiple windows in v17 of the IDE? When I open the IDE, I get an empty window, I then open an existing sketch, which opens in a new window, leaving the empty window open behind it. Opening additional sketches spawns new windows. If I'm only working on one at a time, I need to manually close the previous windows, including the useless empty initial one.

No, but there is a workaround:

File Open from the menu creates a new window, but the toolbar button for opening a sketch loads it into the current window

@wayoda Thank you very much for the "tip" [smiley=thumbsup.gif] I was thinking to search a way to just open one window (sometimes) To open multiple windows, a great change :)

Thanks for the info.
