Open new Tracker windows in single window mode

Later versions of OpenTracker bring the long-awaited “Single Window Browse” option, which lets you double-click a folder and have its contents open in the same Tracker window that’s already open, which reduces desktop clutter. However, this can be a problem if you actually need a 2nd (or 3rd…) Tracker window open for purposes of copying, comparison, etc.

If you’ve got Single Window mode enabled but need a second window open anyway, hold down your Opt key (usually the left Win key) while double-clicking a folder. This bypasses the single window mode and allows the second window to open normally.

Alternatively, right-click the folder, scroll out over it, and release.
