Change how closing the new tab view works in the Desktop app

On the desktop app, you can click a [+] icon in the tab bar at the top. Now that Figjam has rolled out, this triggers a new window that asks you whether you’d like to create a new Figma or Figjam file. I love this new view!

I would like the ability to close this window if I changed my mind about creating a new file. Currently, if I have another project tab open, right-clicking and selecting “Close tab” doesn’t do anything. I would prefer it to close this tab and land me on the other open tab I have.

Also, when I don’t have any other projects open, right-click and select “Close tab,” it closes the entire Figma window. I would prefer it to drop me on the home page in this case.
