Change tab order of documents being opened in Visual Studio 2010

At some point between 2003 and 2008, Microsoft changed the default order of where tabs appeared in Visual Studio. In the old version, new document tabs would appear to the right. The new version switched this behavior. I always preferred the old order and now it is an option.

Tools –> Options –> Environment –> Documents

  1. Coding in VS 2010: CTRL-F6 order...

    When my tabs are like this:

    DocOne ... DocTwo ... DocThree ... DocFour ...

    and I am on DocOne, I want CTRL-F6 to go immediately to DocTwo (even if I haven't touched it in a while). I figured out how to make it NOT show the white box (CTRL-F6 instead of CTRL-TAB), but it still switches to my most recently used other document (rather than the next one over).

    Anyone else have this problem? Anyone solve it?
