Visual Studio 2015 – Disable file preview on single click

Visual Studio 2015 opens files for preview by default when you click on a file in solution explorer.

If you wish to disable this, go to Tools -> Options, and under Environment select “Tabs and Windows” settings. Under “Preview Tab” section, deselect “Allow new files to be opened in the preview tab” option and click on OK. Now when you click on a file in solution explorer it won’t open in preview tab.

This also applies to Visual Studio 2012 and 2013.
