Editing Multiple Files Using Groups of Tabs

You can arrange tabs into groups to facilitate working with multiple files at a time. PhpStorm allows you to have an unlimited number of tab groups, thus enabling you to view several files or several places within the same file.

To create a new group of tabs

  • Just split the desired editor tab.

To move a tab from one group to another

  1. Switch to the desired tab.
  2. Right-click the desired editor tab and choose Move Tab to Opposite Tab Group on the context menu.
