Does the IDEA have the ability to hide/show the opend-file-tabs?

I often opened more than 20 java files, the opened-file-tabs occupied too much area on my screen.

So I think it is great if the IDEA has the ability to hide/show the opend-file-tabs.

How do you think about it, guys?

Perhaps this may help:

File | Settings | Appearance | give a check on "Editor tabs in single row"

Thanks.

But I don't think it will accord with my requirement,
it is terrible to find out the target file in this way if I have opened more than 20 file. :)

I usually use Ctrl+E (recent files) stuff in such a circumstances. And
have a limit of 4 files being open at the same time.

I use 2 plug-ins that help file navigation IMO:

TabReorder - allows drag and drop rearrangement of tabs
TabSwitch - switch between open tabs in renetly used order.

I made a little plugin, it is beta so I didn't try to put it in the
plugin repository, but it works.
It's a document selector like the one in textpad, or like recent files
(ctrl+e) except it stays in a toolwindow.
You can also link together files (for example we usually have a class
and a related jsp, when you edit one, you often want to edit the other)...

anyway if you want to try it, it's here :

Didn't this functionality exist in one of the EAPs. I seem to remember
having the recent files in a window in the right. It was only visible
for a build or two. It was actually useful when there were lots of
files to retouch. Your plugin sounds promising, especially the linked
files. You should stick it in the repository anyway.

In fact what I want is a hide/show-window function just like we can hide/show the Project window or Ant Build window.
