Yes. But I think that it a bit complex. I prefer that it were in right click 
menu. It's more simply and faster

Perhaps and optionally (choose it from preferences menu) doble arrow at the 
beginning and at the end of the tabs.

So, we have:

but it's just a suggestion. Surely, there are more simple ways to do that.
Even include in the tab menu (because maybe it will not use very much)

This does not works for me. I only have "x" (?)

(*) But I don't want to create another window and close the original. I don't 
to move tabs. I want to remove the others. For remove all items of a 
directory, you could select the one you want to leave, separate it, and 
deletes another. Or simply select the annoying items and press supr. Do you 
understand what I mean. Formally, it's not what the user wants.

Yes. Perhaps there were too much menus.

Yes. I understand you. These are only suggestions, for if you think that these 
are convenient or useful for include in it.
