How to open single JSON file not in LightMode

Up until recently, if I had a project open, and went to open a JSON file that was outside the project, it would open in the instance of WebStorm already open. Now, it opens in LightMode. Is there a way or some setting I can set to fix that? I'm using WebStorm 2022.1 and Windows 11.

how do you open your JSON - from the command line or from within the IDE? Could you share a screen recording of the issue?

I typically just double click the file from File Explorer.

Do you mean windows Explorer? Do you have *.json extension associated with WebStorm?

open Help > Find Action, type "Registry..." and open it. Then find light.edit.file.open.enabled  key there and disable it - does it help?
