If you only ever want to have a single Opus window open then the following options will help.

Note that the first two screenshots are not the same, one is for Desktop Double-click and the other is for Taskbar Icon Double-click.

If you turn on these options then you may also want to turn on the option to quit Opus when all windows are closed. That is covered in a separate FAQ.

If you want to create a system-wide hotkey (or change the Win-E hotkey that opens My Computer by default) to bring the last-used Opus window to the front, and open a new window if there isn't one, then do this:
  • Select Settings -> Customize and then select the Keys tab.
  • Click the New Hotkey icon above the list of hotkeys.
  • Turn on the System-wide Hotkey checkbox. (It's important to do this first if you want to create a hotkey involving the Windows key, otherwise you cannot type the key.)
  • Type the key you want into the Hotkey field.
  • Set the function to: Go LASTACTIVELISTER NEW
