General and position:
Style and color:
Save All In One Click:
A key advantage of Office Tab is that you can save time by consolidating your actions! For example, if you’ve opened multiple files, you don’t have to save and close them individually; just click “Save All” from the Context menu and all your files are saved. Want to close all opened files? Simply select “Close All” and all your files will be closed.
Manage Documents In Groups Details:
In Office Tab, you can add a saved Microsoft Office file to a group. You can quickly open a group of documents or a group of Excel files and so on. With this Favorites Group feature, you can apply the following operations to a group of documents in Microsoft Office applications easily.
Add a document to a group;
Open a group of documents;
Close a group of documents;
Save a group of documents.
Rename Files Easily:
You don’t have to open the “Save As” dialog to rename a file. Just click “Rename” on the Context Menu in the tab and enter the new file name—it’s that simple! If you want to save the file in another folder, select “Save As” from the Context Menu.
Displays Full File Name:
If a file name is long, typically, the Windows taskbar displays only a small part of it, which is often a problem. However, with Office Tab installed, you will able to see the entire file name on the Tab Bar, no matter how long it is.
Useful Context Menu:
Right-click on a tab or Tab Bar to access the tab/tab bar context menu. Office Tab also combines some common command items in Microsoft Office, letting you access those items more quickly.
The tabbed interface allows you to open multiple documents in a single window. Each document appears as a new tab within the window (not a new window) and can be accessed with one click. This feature improves your efficiency when working with Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, Access and Visio).
Office Tab is based on the standard Microsoft Office Add-in Technology. It does not impact the performance of the standard application and has an extremely small file size.
Support many languages:
Tabs can be moved easily by dragging. You can switch between tabs using the mouse or you can activate a tab by pressing Alt + N (“N” being the tab order “1, 2, 3…”).
Customize Tab Appearance:
The colors of the tabs and the Tab Bar are customizable. There are 11 styles for you to choose from. Within each style, the font style and the name of each tab can be changed to suit your preference (to apply these changes, you will need to close and restart Microsoft Office).
More Powerful Features
Plenty Of Shortcuts:
Office Tab supports plenty of built-in as well as user-defined shortcuts to handle the tabs, hide/display the Tab Bar, switch between tabs, and select specific tabs. Personalized shortcuts are easy to assign.
Show / Hide The Tab Bar:
You can place the Tab Bar on the top, bottom, right or left side of your workspace. You can even hide the Tab Bar when there is only one tab. You may also show or hide the Tab Bar using a customizable shortcut key (the default shortcut key is “Win + Q”).
The Context Menu contains the following options: “Open,” “Open in New Window,” and “Open Folder.” It’s easy to open an existing file or folder, and open more than one tabbed window.
Display More Than One Tabbed Window With Office Tab In Office:
You can open a completely new office window with new tabs using the right click menu and select new in new window option
All-In-One Settings Center:
Office Tab has a powerful Settings Center, where you can configure all Office Tab settings. You can use the Tab Center to manipulate all your settings such as enabling/disabling the tab separately, using shortcuts (or not), displaying the Tab Bar on the top, bottom, left or right position, choosing the Tab Style, and customizing the tab colors.
Create New Document:
You can quickly create a New Document by double-clicking the left button on the blank space of the Tab Bar, or choose to use the “New” command item on the Context Menu.
“Save” and “Save All” commands on the Context Menu can be used to save all the documents with just one click. Office Tab marks the modified documents or workbooks with an asterisk (*) in their file names to indicate their modified status.
The Context Menu also contains the following options: “Close,” “Close All,” and “Close Other,” offering users flexibility in closing the opened documents. Double-clicking the left button on the tab or clicking the middle mouse button will quickly close the opened document.
Customize Tab Length:
The tab length can be set to automatic, self-adaptive, or fixed (the default length is “automatic”). Automatic shows as much of the file name as possible. Self-adaptive shows the file name depending on the space available on a tab. With fixed tab length, all the tabs have the same length.
What are the new features?
The tab style setting is added into the ribbon, you can easily change the tab style of Office Tab.
The fixed width and max width of the tab layout are added into the ribbon, you can set them directly without going to the Options Center.
