The Browse to option on the shortcut menu of the Contains and Where Used tabs changes the focus of the tab to the referenced file to which you browse.
In previous versions, the Browse To option opened a new Windows Explorer window. In SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2012, the
Browse to option changes the focus to the referenced file without opening a new window.
The new behavior also applies when you navigate to vault files using the File Explorer Contains and Where Used tabs in the Open and Save As dialog boxes. This behavior occurs whether you access the dialog boxes from the SolidWorks software or from any standard Microsoft Windows application such as Notes and Microsoft Office.
You can also open a new window using the new Browse to in a New Window option.
