You would need to alter the source code to do that.

I am glad it helps and I really appreciate you taking the time to give it a rating.

This actually took a lot of time because there are issues with the Shell that is created with the the Microsoft walk-thru tutorial. For example, if you open a Tab using "show as link" and then click that link again, the Tab will not open a second time. I had to fix that and other small issues.

I also realized that you could not show a logo in your shell so I fixed that too.

I later realized that I had to prevent you from closing the Default Tab (because that was the only navigation you have). I ended up creating 3 versions (1.0,1.5,2.0) in one day :)

The only limitation I have is that the validation requires you to hover over the red "!" to see the errors. However, this keeps the "minimal" design. I am working on an article that shows how to still pop up an error box in certain situations.

That's the reason I am selling the source code, I figured I had something that people would feel is fair to charge for. However, it is totally free to install and use.
