After learning about the command-line arguments that you can send to FARR, I tried to use the -show option. It works, but it does not seem to work as advertised in the help document. Specifically, the part about "(or bring up any running copy) " doesn't seem to actually bring up an existing instance of FARR.
To prove this I created a script that just calls FARR after one instance is already running and showing in the taskbar. Sure enough, when running the script there is a slight delay and then FARR runs a second instance, which clearly shows up in the taskbar along with the previous instance.
### QUESTION 1:
Is there something I'm doing wrong, or a special way to formulate the commandline string so that FARR will simply instantiate the already-running instance?
### QUESTION 2:
If -show is truly capable of running an existing instance of FARR, is it also possible to use -show in combination with -search so that the already-running instance of FARR can be instantiated, and pre-populated with a filled-in search (such as an alias string)? I tried both and niether option seems to honor the (any running copy) clause.
Thanks in advance for any additional insight.
