This is a really, really useful feature.  But i’ll always remember how difficult it was for me to find bugs with it.  That really frustrates a tester, when you can’t break a dev’s newly written code.  =)

File Tab Channel Close All But This command

Right-click on a File Tab, and select Close All But This. This command will close all the other files in the editor, except for the currently-activated file, obviously.

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