when we open a file from "Package Explorer" in eclipse, after we use it, it will leave in the tabs.

If we open a file from "Search" result, then after we search another keyword, it will disappear, we need to see the search result to find out that.

Is there any solution that I can leave the opened tab in the tabs after I opened from Search panel ?

From main window, select Window - Preferences. On left, tree view, select General - Search. On the right, remove "Reuse editors to show matches". Click on OK button.
