I came up with this solution to a question that I posted on stackoverflow. It uses Tkinter to create a file select dialog window and raise it to the topmost position from jupyter notebook.
1) Is there some kind of built in or canonical way to do this in jupyter notebook that I've missed in my searches?
2) Is there any redundancy?
from tkinter import* # Create Tk root root = Tk() # Hide the main window root.withdraw() root.call('wm', 'attributes', '.', '-topmost', True) from tkinter import filedialog infiles = filedialog.askopenfilename(multiple=True) %gui tk
