TidyTabs is a tool that brings tabbed browsing to all of your programs. Ever wanted to have Chrome-style tabs in Windows Explorer, Microsoft Office or PuTTY? TidyTabs does just that. It integrates nicely with the OS and you will feel like the multi-tab functionality is a core part of Windows.
Organize your windows and free up space on your desktop. Now that all your windows have a draggable tab, you can easily organize them into logically related groups. Just drag one tab onto another and create a tabbed group. Tabs can be detached from a group and inserted into another one. You can even group windows from different applications together.
Only there when you need it
Because not every app need tabs. TidyTabs will guess by itself that some window types will never need tabs. But if that's not sufficient, you can easily specify which application should have a tabbed shell and which one should not. Two clicks are enough to add an application to the blacklist or to the whitelist.
Discreet and smart
Because you don't need more visual noise on your desktop. TidyTabs try to be as stealthy and non-distracting as possible. The tabs are hidden automatically when you don't need them, so that they don't get in your way. When they need to be visible, they stay semi-transparent until you actively use them.
If one aspect of TidyTabs doesn't suit you, you can change it. Every single function of TidyTabs can be configured or disabled thanks to a very simple configuration interface.
