10.7: Prevent auto-load of documents in some apps Apps
In some of Apple's Apps (I've tested Preview and Quicktime Player) holding Shift after launching them stops previous documents from reloading.

I've tested this launching from the Dock, the application icon in Finder or from LaunchPad. These all work (Launchpad also does the slow motion effect from holding down shift).

This doesn't seem to work if you use Alfred or Spotlight to search for and launch an application.

[crarko adds: While I'm sure this has been mentioned before, that last bit is news. I tried running TextEdit from Spotlight and sure enough, the Shift override does not apply. It's worth remembering if that's the way you launch applications.]

Now if only this worked on TextEdit.
