When using multiple tabs in
vim, there is a bar at the top displaying the tabs. At the far right of that bar there is an
X. This is used to close the current tab if use of the mouse is enabled; however, I don't use the mouse in vim, so for me it is a bit of useless cruft taking up space.
With many tabs open, vim doesn't display the whole filename in each files, only the last few characters. Getting rid of this
X -- and the small amount of empty space that seems to be reserved next to it -- would free up a little bit of space. I would be interested in a method to simply turn it invisible, but the ideal answer would give me a way to remove it entirely and free up this space.
