It did, 4 minutes after I said "You will have to wait about 10 more minutes...":

Code: Select all

v16.60.0003 - 2016-04-15 20:50
    * List: From now on multiple selected files are opened in their current 
      order, independent of which of them has the current focus.
      - This changes the behavior described in v6.60.0010 - 2007-11-20 13:00 
        which followed the behavior of Windows Explorer in those days. Today 
        Windows Explorer, aka File Explorer, seems to be less predictable in the 
        order of processing multiple selected files. So XYplorer now takes the 
        freedom to do better.
      - Notable exception: When opening multiple files via the shell context 
        menu, the old behavior has to be continued because the focused file is 
        expected to control the nature of the menu, and the controlling file has 
        to be the first file processed for technical reasons. (This might be the 
        reason why Explorer started this slightly weird behavior in the first 
        place.)

I'm sorry, I waited for the update. But I still see the same behaviour. What do I do wrong? I just select a couple of files and hit 'enter'. It still doesn't open them in the same order in PS.

Are these all files of the same type? If yes, which type?

I don't understand this. Are you sure you upgraded to the new version?

Not necessary.

I'm totally clueless why this should not work. It works here 100% with all combinations I could come up with.

I'm sorry, but it doesn't seem to work the way it should. I add a screenshot from my file selection and the way the files are opened in PS. If you want to see something else, please let me know.

I assume Photoshop is the associated default application to open JPGs on your system?
