How to get a .sql file to load in my original window/instance/connection

Currently, clicking on a .sql file in Windows 10 will open the file in a new Teradata SQL Assistant window/instance which is not connected. This makes opening, modifying, and saving these files cubersome. How can this be changed so that the file opens in the original window/instance?

I don't know of any way to make File Explorer's "Open" action re-use an existing window for this.

But you can drag/drop from File Explorer to the Query pane or use the "Open query..." menu selection or toolbar button to open a file selection dialog.

So I can't get the file to load into my original Teradata SQL Assistant window? This allows me to work with it and save it without having to copy it all over. Seems like this should be default behavior.
