I'm wondering if there is a way for TC to keep only one tab of a particular directory open at any point in time.
I have a tab locked "r:\Projects\WMR\"
then go to "r:\Projects\:
and then go back into "r:\Projects\WMR\"
Now I have 2 tabs, one locked of "r:\Projects\WMR\" and another that is not locked.
I have found that I'm constantly building up a pile of Tabs and then have to remove them one by one.
*Also is there a way to quickly remove tabs?
See also TC-Help (F1) -> Search for: tab -> double-click on: folder tabs.
Browse internal commands:
- type in: cm_CommandBrowser -> in command line of TC
- type in: tab -> in field "Filter"
Thats pretty cool!Petermad the awesome wrote: "Locked, but directory changes allowed"
Translates to "Close tabs on both sides". This results in a pop up if it might close a locked tab, and a bit of a pain.
I discovered I already had the solution but had forgotten it, whoops.
Remove all except locked tabs and active: Ctrl+Shift+W
This should just show another way to delete tabs,JimmyTheBroker wrote:Translates to "Close tabs on both sides". This results in a pop up if it might close a locked tab, and a bit of a pain.

Close All Tabs, one click, both panels including locked ones <-- Click!JimmyTheBroker wrote:...*Also is there a way to quickly remove tabs?...
Code: Select all
[activetabs] 0_path=. 0_options=1|0|0|0|0|0|0 activetab=0 [inactivetabs] 0_path=. 0_options=1|0|0|0|0|0|0 activetab=0
I wondered too. However...JimmyTheBroker wrote:closeall.tab file?
I honestly tried to find information about these, but haven't had any luck.
Look in help under "Folder tabs". In the description of the tabs context menu, it describes how to save tabs to file, and how to load tabs from a file. So files can contain a tab configuration. And users create these files, either by saving tabs to a file, or by writing such a file directly. Either way, one gives the name one wants to the resulting file.
In this case, closeall.tab is a file which the user writes, and it is simply a file which describes tabs. Since it is a user-created file, its name is not going to be found in the help file. And you can use some other name for this file, if you wish.
Also, if you experiment with "save tabs on both sides to file", and then examine the content of the resulting file, one will see that it has
[activetabs] setting off the section with tabs in the active TC panel, and [inactivetabs] setting off the section with tabs in the other TC panel.
As comvox points out, it is a parameter that is not used in wincmd.ini or wcx_ftp.ini - hence not mentioned in the help.[activetabs]
You don't usually have to know the syntax of .tab files, since they are generated by TC - right click on a tab and choose "Save tabs to file" of "Save tabs on both sides to file" or by using the internal commands SAVETABS, SAVETABSL, SAVETABSR, SAVETABS2, SAVETABS2L, SAVETABS2R - (or by using the Tabs menu item in my Extended Menus).
