Is there a way to group files or have multiple Notepad++ windows open with distinct sets of files open in each?

Basically what the title says.
While I appreciate that Notepad++ opens files up as “tabs” inside a single window, I would like to be able to have certain files or unsaved documents open in a seperate window or grouped together (IE one window with text files I’m doing specific stuff with, another that just has temprorary notes).
Additionally, if this can be done, I am wondering how this impacts the function of Notepadd++ reopening unsaved files after the program was last closed. Will it reopen both windowes? Will it reopen all the documents in one window? will it only restore the last window that was interacted with?
Other suggestions/ideas apperciated in terms of trying to do what I want or alternative programs!

Afaik, npp does not handle multiple instances when saving its configuration. The last closed window is the one that effectively saves its configuration.
To have an instance with a particular set of files, the npp way would be to load a session file in that instance.

@Ekopalypse is right. "Session"s are what you want. Notepad++ has some support for sessions but probably the Session Manager plugin meets advanced session needs better.
