Automatically remove oldest used search tab (maximum of 10 search tabs allowed)

It is possible to set the maximum number of search tabs that can be open at one time. The default value is 10. If this default value is changed, this option will reflect the maximum number of search tabs configured. For example, if the maximum number of search tabs is set to 5, this option will change to Automatically remove oldest used search tab (maximum of 5 search tabs allowed)
The option Automatically remove oldest used search tab... determines the behaviour when the user attempts to open more search tabs than the configured maximum value.
Select this option to automatically close the oldest search tab when the maximum number of search tabs are already open. For example, (assuming the maximum number of search tabs is set to 10) if you open 10 search tabs and perform one search on each tab before opening the next search tab and you then perform another search on the first tab. When you try to open an 11th new tab, the second search tab will be automatically closed, as it has been unused for the most number of searches.
Clear this option to prompt the user each time they attempt to open more than the maximum number of configured search tabs with the following window.

image

Select Yes to close the oldest search tab and open a new search tab. Click No to leave all the search tabs open without opening a new search tab. 
The maximum number of search tabs is set in the Searching Client config file. See “Set the Maximum Number of Search Tabsfor more information.
