Restore PRIOR editing tab window upon closing another



  • Is there a way to get Notepad++ to activate the most recently active editing tab window when the current tab is closed? It seems to always activate the RIGHTMOST tab when the current tab is closed. I’d much rather it activate the one I was recently working with, as it is more likely that that is where I need to be anyway.

    If there IS a way of doing this, is it View-aware? Meaning, if I close a tab in the primary view, but the prior file I was working with is in the secondary view, I’d like to be taken back to that specific file in the secondary view.
