View file names in two rows in Notepad++

Notepad++ is one of favorite tools of many programmers and script writers. Many a times we are in such a situation wherein we have to keep many files open at some common time. In such a situation, we have to rely on [Ctrl][Tab] or < and > arrow on the row of filename tabs in Notepad++.

Alternatively, we can have multiple rows of filenames in Notepad++. For this, we have to make this setting:
Settings -> Preferences -> General -> Tab bar -> Multiline

Ensure that 'Multiline' chekbox is checked. When it is checked, filenames are displayed in 1, 2, 3 or as many rows as required  for currently opened files, based on number of files and lengths of their names.

Enjoy coding this time!
