    At the top, we can close the particular document by clicking the cross at the right-hand side of the tab.
    The more files we open, the more tabs we have. They will fill up the bar along the top. Photoshop will not double-check with us unless we have made any changes. Otherwise, Photoshop will ask us to save the document as a Photoshop file.
