Thanks, but please in the future describe the issue in detail here.  I
will copy the relevant parts of the above URL:

AFAICT, pop-to-buffer-same-window is working as intended.  It tries to
display the file in the window from which find-file was invoked, but
your original code, which called neotree-dir before loading the files,
caused find-file to be invoked from the neotree window (to which
neotree-dir switches), and that window is dedicated to its buffer.  So
pop-to-buffer-same-window cannot reuse that window for another buffer,
and it therefore uses a different window (in this case, creating a new
one).

Your workaround is actually what I would recommend as _the_ solution:
call neotree-dir after loading all of the files (there's no need for
deleting the other windows, at least not in my testing).  That will
invoke find-file from a non-dedicated window, and will work as you
expect.

IOW, your original code relied on undocumented behavior of find-file
when invoked from a window that is dedicated to its buffer.  That
undocumented behavior was changed to another undocumented behavior,
the only documented aspect of which is that find-file uses some other
window in this case; it is unspecified which window exactly.

Also, I cannot reproduce this part:

> Further, when I navigate to the frame's bottom window, and then execute C-x 1

In my testing, the neotree window is not deleted by "C-x 1", as I'd
expect, because it has its no-delete-other-windows parameter set to a
non-nil value.  Maybe your neotree installation is outdated?  (I tried
the latest version.)  Or maybe some other local customizations cause
this?

Bottom line, I see no bugs here.  It is all intended and correct
behavior.
