Could you please explain further? If you are simply using the Windows file manager, with View|Thumbnails set so that images show as thumbnails, then the GIMP itself should not be activated. Maybe you are referring to something else? Which version of Windows?

If you mean that you actually open an image for editing with GIMP, and *then* you get a new instance of the GIMP each time you open a new image, you need to change the file associations so that you use gimp-win-remote.exe.
