You can't disable or hide tabpage in a tabcontrol only tabcontrol can be disabled. this is my problem also. my solution was remove the tabpages and add it again when i need them.

here what i did hope this may help you

private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (tabControl1.TabPages.Contains(Secondtabpage))

when the form loads just remove the other tabs like

so that the firsttab will be shown. use the above code to show your tabpages again.:

If you can use a free third party tabcontrol then take a look at
TabControlEX which does allow you to disable tabpages as well as a few other
things you can't usually do.
