Office Tab - Tabbed Browsing, Editing, and Managing of Documents in Microsoft Office 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013

With the standard versions of Microsoft® Office, you cannot view and edit multiple files within a single tabbed window. Office Tab changes this by introducing a tabbed user interface—as seen in web browsers such as Internet Explorer® 8, Firefox and Google Chrome—in Microsoft Office 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 (Word, Excel®, PowerPoint®, Publisher®, Access®, Project and Visio®). New features in Office Tab 9.70

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

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).


High Performance

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.


Move Tabs

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”).

Open Documents

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.

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 Documents

"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.

Close Documents

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.
