Tabs Studio v2.5.7 released: added the ability to sort tabs by project and extension to the Sorter add-in, fixed tabs reset when Windows theme is changed with Visual Studio 2010 running.
Download link: Tabs Studio v2.5.7.
I’ve added the ability to sort tabs by project and extension:
A tab can have several extensions. To simplify sorting by extension behavior, only the first extension present on tab creation is used for sorting. You can select the Re-sort tabs
context menu command to reset it.
For example, if Sorter is set up to sort only by extension and you open Form1.cs [Design] and stdafx.h:
Sorting by extension
Now you open stdafx.cpp
. The stdafx
tab keeps second position because “only the first extension present on tab creation is used for sorting” – in our case .h
Order not changed when a new extension is added
But if we Re-sort tabs
, then .cpp
becomes the primary extension for the stdafx
tab and it moves before Form1
Please, let me know if you find sorting by extension actually useful for your work 🙂
The updated Sorter add-in is included in Tabs Studio v2.5.7.

Depending on the project type you are working on, Tabs Studio settings and add-ins enabled, tabs may have a path in the tab name. The Sorter add-in compares tab names without path, so for an ASP.NET website project, tabs are sorted like this:
Sorting without path
I’ve added the option to sort by full tab name. You can enable it in Tabs Studio – Add-in manager – Sorter options:
With this option enabled the same tabs are now sorted like this:
