How do I change Illustrator doc. window settings from maximizing all open minimized files at once?

In Illustrator CS6 preferences I can't figure out how to change my settings for document windows.

I have the untabbed documnets un checked, I do not want to use tabbed documents.

I work with several ai. floating docs at one so I have them minimized in my dock (on a Mac).

When I click on one to work with all the minimized docs  maximize, it's so annoying! Is there a way to stop this?

    If you did edit >> preferences >> (uncheck) open documents as tabs, and the windows are floating, then you minimize each, then clicking quiclly and letting go in dock shoudl maximize one at a time.


    I do seem to have found a bug. if I have 3 docs minimized in dock, create a new documnet, then i get 2 open windows.


    Did you update to 16.04?

    I have this same issue.  I never had this problem with CS3, CS4 or CS5.
