This software tool creates multiple tabs for simultaneously editing multiple documents in Word.
Document Tabs for Word adds tabbed browsing and editing to Microsoft Word 2010 64-bit version. The tool creates a new tab in the application as each new document is opened and the tabs are displayed between the main tool bar and the document display area. Document Tabs for Word allows the user to place the tab bar on the above/below/left/right of workplace. Each of these tabs could be customized and can be a different color. You could choose to have a preset configuration too, if you like. Quite often it is necessary to work on several documents at the same time. This tabbed method of working could be very helpful in such situations. However, do remember, that the Word itself is a heavyweight application and working with multiple documents would require that your machine has sufficient power.
Some of the conveniences this tool brings to the user include the ability to enable/disable hiding the tab bar when there is only one document open, display a confirmation box when all the tabs are closed, ability to open/close tabs individually and so on. These certainly give you a lot of flexibility in handling the active documents you want to work on simultaneously. The tab bar can be shown or hidden too through a shortcut key. There is a default for it but then, you could define your own short cut too. Several other user defined short cuts make the tab manipulation easy. This is a handy & flexible tool if you need the multi-tab convenience.
