This is a really, really useful feature, but she’ll always remember how difficult it was for her to find bugs with it. That really frustrates a tester, when you can’t break a developer’s newly written code.

Right-click a file tab, and select Close All But This. This command closes all the other files in the editor, except for the currently active file, obviously.

And yes, you can bind it to a keyboard shortcut. The command is File.CloseAllButThis. In the General Development Settings, this isn’t bound to any keyboard shortcut, so have fun!

Happy Programming! =)
