Make Your Developer's Life Easier By Reducing Number Of Opened Tabs in Pycharm

Feb 23, 2017 · Updated: Nov 04, 2017 · by Tim Kamanin

When coding, I often find myself overwhelmed by a number of opened tabs in my editor. I just seem to have opened every single .py file of a Django project. And it's kinda hard to find a way in this evergrowing of tabs.

Given that, I was really happy to discover a neat feature of PyCharm IDE called " closing tabs policy ". This feature keeps a number of opened tabs to a defined by you limit , let's say 3 tabs and auto-closes less used when you go over the limit. Which is really helpful, I myself found that limit of 5 is very comfortable for me.

You can apply this feature in 3 simple steps:

  1. Open Pycharm preferences
  2. Type " tab closing policy " and you'll be directed straight to the Tab Limit input
  3. Set your limit, pick your closing policy and click Apply.

Now you're all set and believe me, this will definitely make your dev workflow smoother.
