Working with tabs in gedit allows you to keep an eye on several files in a single window. The tab that is larger than the other tabs indicates the file that is currently open. The smaller tabs indicate other files that are available to work on.
To add a new tab, create a new file with Ctrl+T. The tab will be added to the right side of any other tabs.
To remove a tab, click the × on the tab's right side. To remove all open tabs, press Ctrl+Shift+W.
