My tex project contains many .tex files, I must open every file in the project directory, apparently, it is very annoying.

enter image description here

In Texmaker, how can I open a text project instead of opening every file in the project directory?

Not exactly what you're asking for, but with all the files open, you can save a session file with File -> Session -> Save session:

Session menu in Texmaker

Next time you start Texmaker, you can restart the previous session with the keyboard shortcut seen in the image (Ctrl + Shift + F8), or open a specific session file with File -> Session -> Load session.

Note also that when using the normal File -> Open, you can select multiple files to open.

  • Your answer has solved my question. Although texmaker couldn't open a containing folder, there is Session mechanism available to open previous projects. Thank you!
