This extension allows users to change the behavior of their document tabs. Users can customize the behavior and look of the tabs via the Tools > Options dialog.
Scrollable tabs Maintain spatial consistency of the documents that are included in the document well.
Vertical tabs Document tabs are shown vertically, allowing you to fit more tabs than are normally visible when shown horizontally.
Show close button in tab well Show the close document button in the document well that will close the active tab, similar to Visual Studio 2008.

Sort by most recently used Whenever a tab becomes active, it is moved to the left - such that all tabs will be sorted in most recently used order.
Sort tabs by project Tabs will be sorted by the project they belong to, thus keeping them always together in the document tab well.
Sort tabs alphabetically Tabs will be sorted alphabetically. When Sort By Project is turned on, tabs will be sorted first by project and then alphabetically.
Color tabs according to their project or according to regular expressions This option permits tabs to be colored according to the project they belong to. This is particularly useful when sorting tabs by project, as it allows you to immediately identify different groups of project documents. You can also configure regular expressions and assign a color to each one. If the name of a tab matches the configured regular expression, it will be colored with the assigned color.
