Runtime solution trying to give me grey hairs

Hi,

 

I've made a runtime solution that has a menu to create date stamped backup copies of the database file on the Desktop.

 

If I double click one of these copies, it acts as though it were just a shortcut and opens the original database file (which is clear to see, because the database filename appears in the window title bar and any changes made are saved in the original database).

 

However, if I already have a database window open and do the above, it does open the copy (i.e. the two window title bars reflect their filenames and making changes in one database doesn't affect the other).

 

Can anyone explain the above to me? (don't necessarily need to fix the above - it might even be desired behaviour, as long as it's consistent and not otherwise problematic - I just want to make sure I understand it properly)

 

Kind regards,

Kap
