That is the best way to do that.
If you use the windows explorer to open ddb's it wil open new protel
versions, you can call it a bug in protel or in windows, but it stinks!
I normally work on multiple projects and i alwas use the file open command.
Only think you have to keep in mind, if you have a large number of projects
open, you can go for a cup of coffee when protel  starts up...
