Opening more than 15 files with Windows Explorer doesn't work.

In XP I used to be able to open many files in notepad at once. Now with Windows 7 I'm limited to 15. Is there a way to make Windows 7 behave like XP in this regard?

Hello cncdanb,

There is a 15 shell limit in the context menu handler by design.  There is currently not a way to get around this, but you might be able to find one in a third party application.
