File tabs disappeared, how to get them back?

My file tabs disappeared! How to get them back?

My keyboard was in a string state, I may have hit some keys that got rid of the file tabs.

How to bring them back?

I closed SE and restarted it, now they are back.

For future reference:  Window > Zoom Toggle (Document Tabs)

When I tried to get them back I did View->Tool Windows->File Tabs, but those are the old/obsolete file tabs. Did not occur to me to go into the Window menu.

Maybe View->Tool Windows->File Tabs should be changed to use these supported file tabs? I know that technically it is not a tool window, but as long time SE user that is where I first looked, and the old File Tabs are obsolete and shouldn't be used anymore. Just a suggestion.

That is not a bad idea.  I'll file a FR.

There are some customers still using the old File Tabs tool window. It can't be removed.
