File, New Window opens tab instead

Recommended Posts

I want to open a new window, so I go to menu File, New Window, and instead a tab opens in the current window (showing a notes list). How do a get a new window? Currently I drag the tab out of that window and it makes it into a new window.

Don't know if this will fix it for you, 

Go into the System Preferences -> Dock and check the "Prefer tabs when opening documents:" preference. If it says "Always", change it to something else. "In Full Screen Only" is a good option. 

I have mine set to "Always" and it does what you're describing, so there's a good chance that yours is set that way as well.
