I'm using the Productivity Power Tools extension in VS2010 to remove the paths from the tab names. This is fine, except when using the resource editor - where all the tabs are then "project.rc" or similar. Is there any way (or another extension you know about?) to display only the resource ID as the tab name while in the resource editor?

Not clear at all. First of all, what it the project type, language, platform? Any other relevant information?
Resource IDs are designed to address some object in a resource, not to display it. Why?

I'm not sure I fully understand your misunderstanding. The language / platform isn't particularly relevant, but in this case C++. If I'm editing three dialogs, all the (admittedly, shortened) tabs show something like "Dialogs.rc - ... - Dialog". It would be much more useful if the tabs were titled IDD_DIALOG1, IDD_DIALOG2 and IDD_DIALOG3...

I don't know if you're being deliberately obtuse, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt... don't you think it is easier to find the tab you want if all tabs have different names, rather than all having the same name?
