Office Tab features a powerful Setting Center; you can configure all Office Tab settings. Such as: To Enable / Disable the tab separately, use the shortcuts or not, display the tab bar to the top / below / left / right position, choose the tab style and customize the tab colors, all settings can be done in Office Tab Center.

Useful Context Menu

Right-click on a tab or tab bar to accesses the Tab/tab bar context menu. Office Tab also combines some common command items of Office, that let you access those items more quickly.

Show / Hide the Tab Bar

You can

  • put the tab bar on the top, bottom, right or left side of the workspace.
  • hide the tab bar when there is only one tab.
  • show and hide the tab bar by a customizable shortcut key (the default shortcut key is “Win + Q”)
Customize Tab Appearance

The colors of tabs and the tab bar are customizable. There are 11 styles of tabs for using. The font style and length of the name on each tab can be customized based on your preference (to apply the changes, you need to close and restart Ms Office applications).

Customize Tab Length

The tab length can be set to automatic, self-adaptive or fixed (the default length is “automatic”). Automatic: This shows the document name in a tab as completely as possible. Self-adaptive: The words can be shown completely on a tab if there is enough space. Fixed: All the tabs are fixed at the same length.
