Microsoft Word Tabs 

Today we are constantly living with tabs. How did we do without them?

Tabs in our browsers allow us to have more than one site open at a time. Tabs in other programs such as our text editors allow us to work on more than one document at a time. Or tabs allow us to have one document open as a reference while writing another.

Office Tab  is a handy add-on that allows you to have tabs in any version of Microsoft Office. It also works in Excel and Powerpoint.

For the reasons mentioned above, I have found it very helpful. Switching documents is so simple, and fast. The download is only a few meg. and it installs in less than a minute.  It integrates so well with the program you will think it was always there.

There is a paid version for additional program use such as Publisher and Access, but the free version will suit most users.

If you use Word and Excel a lot, and like to have more than one document open at a time, you might want to check it out.




  Clicking on the ‘x’ or centre clicking will close the tab.

  Opening another document will open it in a new tab.

  Click the tab to change documents or

  For us keyboard types, CTRL+Tab changes tabs Smile
