How to stop opening zip files from creating a new tab

Hey I think Path Finder is great, but have a question:

Every single time I open a zip file, Path Finder creates/opens a new tab. This REALLY interferes with workflow, as the new tab becomes focus, thus requiring more clicks to close and return to the original tab I was working with in the first place.

I tried living with this bug/feature, but I work with a lot of zip files and it is driving me crazy.

Please help, thank you.

    After numerous attempts at getting ANY sort of reply from Path Finder "Support"...

    You know what? Life's too short to deal with you turds. You can forget/delete this thread, I am moving on to find an alternative to Path Finder, and move on with my life.

    You have lost a true fan, supporter, and customer of your product.
