The default is that when you close a tab, the tab to the right of the tab you just closed becomes the current tab. This mapping closes the current tab and makes the tab to the left of the tab you just closed the current tab. I like this to provide symmetry with <tt>tabopen</tt> (new tabs go to the right of the tab you were just on). This way, if I'm editing a file, and do something quickly in a new tab, then close that tab, I get back to my original tab. Obviously the keys for the mapping can be changed to whatever you want.

By default when a tab is closed, if another tab is open to the right of the tab that was just closed, it will become the "in focus" or current tab. However, when editing quickly this does not provide symmetry with the <code>:tabopen</code> command, because the <code>:tabopen</code> command opens a new tab to the right, and the <code>:tabclose</code> does restore focus to the original tab upon closing. With the following command in the .vimrc file, when editing a file, if the user needs to do something quickly in a new tab, they can use a mapping to close it and return to the original tab.

noremap &lt;silent&gt;&lt;C-S-w&gt; :if tabpagenr() != tabpagenr('$')&lt;cr&gt;:tabclose&lt;cr&gt;:if tabpagenr() &gt; 1&lt;cr&gt;:tabprev&lt;cr&gt;:endif&lt;cr&gt;:else&lt;cr&gt;:tabclose&lt;cr&gt;:endif&lt;cr&gt;

By default when a tab is closed, if another tab is open to the right of the tab that was just closed, it will become the "in focus" or current tab. However, when editing quickly this does not provide symmetry with the :tabopen command, because the :tabopen command opens a new tab to the right, and the :tabclose does restore focus to the original tab upon closing. With the following command in the .vimrc file, when editing a file, if the user needs to do something quickly in a new tab, they can use a mapping to close it and return to the original tab.

noremap <silent><C-S-w> :if tabpagenr() != tabpagenr('$')<CR>:tabclose<CR>:if tabpagenr() > 1<CR>:tabprev<CR>:endif<CR>:else<CR>:tabclose<CR>:endif<CR>

CommentsEdit

The following accomplishes the same as above, but if a tab is not being closed, will just call the :q command.

function! CloseSomething()
  if winnr("$") == 1 && tabpagenr("$") > 1 && tabpagenr() > 1 && tabpagenr() < tabpagenr("$")
    tabclose | tabprev
  else
    q
  endif
endfunction
map <C-x> :call CloseSomething()<CR>
