Open multiple files in one action from the tree view


My coworker and I have been trying to open multiple files at the same time from the tree view.

We can Shift-select and Cmd-select many files at the same time, but then…nothing. We can’t find a combination of clicks, drags, or keypresses that will open them all at the same time.

How can this be done?


Atom’s Tree View currently doesn’t offer a way to open multiple files in one action, you are correct. If you want to file a request for the feature, please open an Issue at


Looks like someone authored a plugin that does this. Hopefully will be added to the core Atom project.
