How to make open tabs display the filename only without path?

When editing an ASP.Net project in VS2010 the tabs for the open files try to cram in the fully-qualified name of the open file, thereby making it nearly impossible in many cases to tell at a glance which file is associated with which open tab. For some reason this doesn't happen when editing a WinForm or console app. I read somewhere that R# can be configured to force the tab to display just the filename alone without the long path. I can't figure out how to do this. Anybody know? I'm using VS2010 Professional and R# 5.1.2.

Hello David,

I'm afraid there's no option in ReSharper that could change this default
behavior of Visual Studio. Thank you!
