  • To do that, search for the css .MPartStack selector and add or change the font-size attribute as follow:

    .MPartStack {
                font-size: 9;
                swt-simple: false;
                swt-mru-visible: false;
        }

After applying the previous tip, tabs might look like this: eclipse-01

Here, you can see that tabs are littlest.
