OpenedFilesView uses the NtQuerySystemInformation API to enumerate all

currently opened in your system. In order to refresh the list of opened
files, press F5, or alternatively, use the Auto Refresh feature (Options

the opened files list every 1 - 5 seconds.
Show Opened Directories: By default, OpenedFilesView only display the

refresh) are added to the right position according to the current column
sort. If this option is not selected, new opened files are added to the
end of the opened files list.
