How to change the default tab context menu of the Tabbed MDI tabs?

You can change the context menu of the MDI tabs by using the property, ContextMenuItem in the TabbedMDIManager. The ContextMenuItem property is used to merge the custom menu items with the default context menu of the tabs. The TabbedMDI uses the Essential Tools XP menus framework to provide the latest Visual Studio.NET menus look and feel. Thus, it is possible to insert custom menu items at the end of the menu.

The following code example demonstrates the same.
