Limited ide when not in project


I feel stupid for asking this. But a while ago I updated and now when I open a file (which I do via scp) I get a very limited editor. When I open pycharm by it's self it far more complete. 

I would like when I open a file to get into the complete IDE (I understand some features might not work). But I have no idea how this is done or what it is even called.

It's called LightEdit mode. See, it describes how to exit it.

Ahh so thats what it's called. The solution that i was looking for wasn't on that page but now i know how it is called I was able to google the answer. 


Solution orginally from Rustam Vishnyakov:

If you permanently want to go back to the previous behavior, you can do this by setting a registry key:

  • Ctrl-Alt-Shift-/ open registery
  • In the Registry dialog find key and set it to false (uncheck the box).
