Key Features


Tabbed document interface lets you open multiple documents in a single window. Each document appears as a new tab in a tabbed window (not a new window) and can be accessed in one click. This feature help improve your work efficiency with Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Close All in One Click

Save All Documents, Close All Documents, Close Other Documents, just in one click! If you have opened multiple files, you don't need to close them one by one, just click "Close All" from the context menu and all files are closed.

Move Tabs

Tabs can be moved and dragged conveniently and switched by using mouse. You can activate a tab by pressing Alt + N (N stands for the Tab order "1, 2, 3…").

Full Document Name

Without Tabs, if the document name is too long, the Windows taskbar can only display a small part of the document name. With Office Tab, the tab can display the whole document name on the tab bar no matter how long the documents name is.
