I see this question was posed back in early 2015, but no solution.

I have three separate MoneyDance files I work with. Is there a way to open each of them directly instead of having to open the most recent one in use and then going to File|Open to access a different one?

Maybe an option for a batch file as originally posed or a shortcut with a parameter to a specific MD file?

    In the latest update to the 2019 version, there is now an option at the bottom of the welcome screen to choose if the program will open the last file you were working with, or will display the welcome screen, allowing you to select which file to open from there. Let me know if that's not what you are asking for.

    Took a bit to find the "welcome screen" under the Window menu. That solves my request.
