Sorry that's not quite correct.  What you want now is --new but
what you probably have is the default behavior of Wing, which is
to reuse the existing instance of Wing to open a new project.

If you did change something, it may have been the command used by
whatever short cut you have set up.  You may have added --reuse there
to avoid ever opening a second copy of Wing.

We don't seem to have a preference to control this.
