Yes, that's one of the new features (and one you can turn off, if you like).

In addition to what Pondini posted, you can get into the habit of closing windows when your finished, Save a Version or Duplicate. This will all help in not having previous files open.

Would you be able to tell me exactly how I can turn this feature off?

System Preferences > General > Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps.

It might also be helpful to note that even after clearing that check box, I had to manually close all of the windows that Preview had opened, otherwise when I started Preview up it would still open each of the documents that were there when I quit. However I can now quit Preview with multiple windows open and none of them will resume when I next open the app.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Thanks for the extra information.
The idea behind this new feature sounds great, but it probably needs a little tweeking before I use it. I like knowing that I can type CMD+Q and it will simultaneously close all my windows and it will be the end of them.

This 'feature' is totally absurd in preview.

I agreee with otto brien - totally absurd to be saving the state of an application for Preview-ing documents.
It appears that you can pick and choose which apps will have a saved state - find the appropriate subfolder in the '~/Library/Saved Application State' folder, delete its contents and then lock it in 'Get Info'.
But for some reason Preview doesn't seem to have a folder for this, so its saving all the junk (sorry, I mean 'saved state') somewehere else.

I am opening documents to show employess and other docs automatically open, these are confidential and I should be able to preview only the document I choose at the time.
HOW do you turn this silly feature off??

Here are the full instructions:
System Preferences > under Personal, click on General > under Number of recent items, click on None for all of them > check the Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps box.
That worked for me.
I'm fairly novice with Mac. Loved it before I installed Lion. For some reason, before the install, I lost what I had backed up to Time Machine. Now, my Mac is all messed up, and I'm very annoyed. Have to get it fixed. *sigh* Some of the Lion changes are not so hot, such as this issue in this thread. Wish they hadn't messed with all of it.

Who at Apple thought this was a good idea?
This is the first time I have upgraded an Apple OS that I regretted it, and I have been with Apple since OS 8.

I rarely restart. I usually do it to install something. When I restart I want everything back the way it was.
So, I like this feature.

Who mentioned anything about restarting? Or you never quit and app?
