Re: Download manager opens a new instance of Explorer.exe everytime

That is how it works. If you select the "Open Containing Folder" entry then you open the folder where the file is saved in the default File Manager, in your case Windows Explorer. If you save all files to the same folder then it is easier to switch to that WE window with Alt + Tab or the Taskbar if you still have it open instead of opening a new explorer window.
