Is there any way to hide the darn close button on tabs in VS2010? I hope there is! I switch between tabs very often and I keep accidentally closing my documents.
I can not imagine that it wouldn't be possible to remove/hide this darn close button? Tell me it ain't so joe! What kind of moron would do such a thing? Why not give backward options for people who have been used to it for years and years and years.
EDIT : For those people who read this in the future, you can vote it up in case you want this option added :
Turns out, the angry C9 mob was wrong and I was most likely right after all. This is good enough for me to get the licenses now.

Thanks for your feedback, we are currently in the process of creating an extension to enable users to customize how the tab well looks and feels.
I will re-activate this bug this and include a link to the download once it is ready for release.
Thanks for your time,

This is what I call good customer care. Microsoft rules! Big thanks!
Previously, you have commented on the Document Tab Well in Visual Studio. Today we released an extension which enables users to customize the Tab Well to suit their personal preferences; from the ordering of tabs to the position of the close buttons, users can now configure dozens of different options for their tabs.
The extension is part of the free Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools pack. Please download the pack and try the out the Document Tab Well extension. If you have any feedback or questions, please add your comments to the Visual Studio Gallery page or e-mail the Document Tab Well team:
The Pro Pack can be downloaded from the following location:
After installing the Pro Pack, Go to
Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Document Tab Well
From there you can customize a wide variety of options, including scrollable tabs and color coding.
Thank you for your time,
