[Closed] How to Change the Behavior of a TabGroup Control from Descending to Ascending order?

Hello

I have a certain application, that many of you might know, called Visual Studio 2008.

Since the 2005 version, Microsoft changed the behavior of the TabGroup control that shows the open files,

from Ascending to Descending order.

It's really uncomfortable IMHO, and I would like to find a way to change it back, so I can resume working peacefully :D

Can this be done?

and If yes, how?

Here's a pic of how it is now.

See how files are being opened in "reverse" order,

isntead of opening like this: | 1 | 2 | 3 | etc...

According to AutoIt Window Info tool, the ClassNN of the Control is "EzMdiTabs1".

What controls the order of the elements in the tabgroup is not specific to the tabgroup, but rather how the items are opened (top to bottom). You must change the order in which files are opened, and that will control the order in which they appear in the tabgroup.

Hello Manadar

I understand what you are saying, but it is not the case here.

I say this, because I am not talking about opening a Solution(workspace),

but talking about opening files 1 by 1.

Until Visual Studio version 2005, If I Open File1, then Open File2, then Open File3,

I will get them aranged like this:

| 1 | 2 | 3 |

From VS2005, If I open the files in the same order like before(File1 then File2 then File3),

VS arranges them reversely: Last opened, will appear First:

| 3 | 2 | 1 |

It is specifically a Control behavior,

which I would really like to change back.
