    Hello,

    This should be the default behavior. It is controlled in the Tools menu -> Options, Tabs section: Open New sessions or Child Sessions in new tab.

    If you then launch multiple comparisons from the interface or command line, each new compare will load files in new tabs.

    Or if you load the parent folders, you can run a Rules-based scan on the files, and view the list of different files. Then double click into a specific file, and use the Next Different File command to hop to the next file when needed.

    Hello,

    Use the Tools menu -> Options dialog, Open With, and define a new Open With: named BC4:
    "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 4\BCompare.exe" "%f1" "%f2"
    Accepts Files (and optionally folders)
    Multiple Instances enabled.

    You can then select multiple files, right click -> Open With -> BC4

    The command line would be the same as the above command line, if done manually:
    bcompare.exe "file1" "file2"
    bcompare.exe "file3" "file4"
    bcompare.exe "file5" "file6"
