Open the TE first, then do 'mc'. Open as many as you have TEs, and more.

mc is an "OFM" http://www.softpanorama.org/OFM/Paradigm/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_manager#Orthodox_file_managers

I always have multiple mc instances open. I normally have a filecommander
instance open too, filling one virtual desktop. http://silk.apana.org.au/fc.html
Font in it is handled by its own ini file, as are its row and column counts. It
has two different sets of directory hotkeys, one "permanent", one history-based.

In Linux, fc & mc are the only file managers I use. Both are heavily used.
