The Context Menu of Tab Buttons already has Menuitems "Close", "Close All" and "Close Other". By long-term use of PSPad I'm used to find "<== Close Left" and "Close Right ==>" there. Pretty much does what it says, closes the Tabs left resp. right of the Tab clicked. "<== Close Left" as Example is very handy when starting to work on a different Task, after having opened the first File of the new Task. Maybe have a Config Checkbox for that in case some think this being superfluoussy.
