Feature Request - Fixed list of favourites/recently used

One of the few features of PyCharm I am struggling with is the list of tabs at the top for switching between programs.  I'm am often working on 10-15 programs at a time and every time I switch I have to hunt for my program in the list of tabs because it keeps moving around.  It would be great to have the option (and maybe it is there already!) to have this as a list on the left or right of the screen in alphabetical order.  I would find this a much easier interface for quickly finding the code I want.

Hello Phoebe,

Actually the fastest way to switch between files in PyCharm is to use Ctrl-Shift-N

- you can press this shortcut, type a part of a name of a file that you have

in your project, and PyCharm will navigate to this file regardless of whether

it's already open or not. Please try this - I hope you'll find it faster

than searching in an alphabetically ordered list of tabs.

Dmitry,

Cool.  Much quicker - command-shift-N on a Mac!

Thanks.

Phoebe.
