No, not without creating your own run command that doesn't perform the
switch. It's not recommended, but a quick hack would be to copy
Textadept's "modules/textadept/run.lua" to your
"~/.textadept/modules/textadept/" folder, and edit line 115 from

     emit_output('> '..command, true)


     emit_output('> '..command)

That will turn off tab switching for every build, compile, and run

I'm not sure what you mean. Textadept only displays tabs when 2 files are
open. If you're asking for tabs to be shown only when one file is open,
this is not possible at the moment.
