Right click and Open lies under the cursor. Standard dialogue box.
I'm not sure where your "multiple dialogs" come from; perhaps your
desktop is doing something.
I'll admit that I had to think about how to open a new file from

the commandline, since 1997 and haven't really found many occasions
to do that.
