You can now access all the open tabs very easily in Visual Studio. If you have several document tabs open, you don’t need to go back and forth to access them and select them from a dropdown. “Allow multiple rows for document tabs” has been a long pending feature request, and finally, it’s there. Visual Studio 2022 now allows multiple rows for Tabs by enabling “Show Tabs in multiple rows“.
Considering Multiple rows are not enabled, We generally need to pick up the files from the list. This will wrap up to multiple rows only for Pinned tabs.
Enable Multiple Rows for Tabs in Visual Studio 2022
Navigate to Tools > Options > Tools and Windows > Then Select “Show Tabs in multiple Rows.”

If we enable the “Show tabs in multiple rows” option, all the tabs will be horizontally wrapped and spilled into multiple rows for easier access, as shown in the following image.
You can now enable additional customization such as “Bold text on Selected tabs” to quickly identify active documents.
Overall this is an excellent addition to Visual Studio and will improve the productivity of the developer. As mentioned earlier. “Allow Multiple Rows for document tabs” was a long pending request from Visual Studio Community, and finally it has been taken care of. You can read about the thread here
