IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

IntelliJ IDEA suggests a handy way to switch between files opened in the editor, split editor tabs, and tool windows (docked or floating). This is similar to the application switchers in the various operating systems. The switcher consists of two columns: the left one displays the list of tool windows, while the right one displays the list of files currently opened in the editor.
