How have you installed Octave 6.4.0? Or have you build it by yourself?

Using version 6.4.0:

when I click the Open button on the toolbar, it opens an 'Open' dialog window for me to chose a file to open, at which point it then opens that file in the editor.  do you not get that dialog?

If I click the new button, it still opens the Editor window with a new blank <unnamed> document open.

In windows, the gui settings are stored in

Closing Octave and deleting that file should force Octave GUI to restore with all default settings next time.  Does that change anything?

Also, note that v7.1 is being released now.  When that appears on https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/download#ms-windows it may be worth trying that version to see if the problem goes away.

When I click the "open" button to create a new script, the editor doesn't appears, the GUI display a new window called "editor" but it's empty, only has the name in the task bar.
The problem doesn't ocurrs in previous version that I used (6.1).
