When having a number of files opened in Texmaker, at the top of editor pane, there is a drop down panel with the names of open documents in it. I prefer to have tabs of open documents at the top of editor pane, similar to Texstudio and Winedt. Is there a way that I can change this setting?

    Doesn't look like it. You can get a list of open files with View --> List of opened files, but tabs doesn't appear to be an option. Commented Sep 2, 2013 at 15:29
  • @TorbjørnT. an answer? :-) As with most GUIs, the amount of customization you can do only goes so far (and in many cases, not at all). Commented Sep 2, 2013 at 15:35
  • Sadly there haven't been much possibilities of customizing this parts of TeXmaker and other forks of this Tool

Texmaker uses the same system than modern editors like xcode, kate, qtcreator which don't use anymore tabs.

The "list of opened files" option of the "View" menu works like tabs : if you click on an item, the editor for the corresponding file is displayed :
