I want to suggest a setting in the preferences for opening a new window instead of a new tab. The reason is that I find file management with tabs cumbersome because I can't use drag and drop from one tab to another.

So, upon clicking on a file with the middle mouse button, PCManFM would then open a new window instead of a new tab, and the button in the very upper left corner would also open a new window instead of a new tab, as it does now.

    You can use drag & drop from one tab to another if you use dual-pane mode.
    Also option to open folders from desktop in new window instead of new tab is added.
    To open folders in new window you can use option 'Open in new window' from context menu, it is available for any folder in both folder view and sidepane now.
    I can add an optional button "New Window' into toolbar if you want it.
