  • A small feature request: is it possible to implement a close current tab icon on the right hand side of the tab bar like firefox does?

    Apologies if this has been previously suggested/dismissed; in anycase thanks for the great software!

    • How about checking "Enable close button on each tab" under Settings, Preferences... on the Global tab?

       
    • Doesn't the [X] icon with one page do just that?

       
      • during the last few days i was autmomatically searching for the icon on the right side. because i was using ff and npp. i'd like to have the close tab icon on the right side.
        what do you think?

         
    • Yes it does - I was just suggesting moving it to the right hand side of the window on the tab bar. I think it is more convenient when positioned there.

      I agree.

      Even after using NPP for years, right clicking on a tab to close it still seems odd to me.

      An X in the corner, under NPP's X would be the common, Windows-centric, way to close a single file.

       
    • it's a good feature

       
    • You can middle click any tab to close it, just like in FF.

       
    • "An X in the corner, under NPP's X would be the common, Windows-centric, way to close a single file."

      AGREE!

       
    • Thanks for an awesome application!

      For what it's worth, I would love to see this feature too.  I'm in Firefox all day long and am used to clicking on the red x to close a tab.  Thanks.
