Ever since web browsers adopted the use of tabs, we’ve all become accustomed to using them. But how much better would life be if you were able to use tabs in all of your applications? Well, that dream becomes a reality with today’s discount software promotion, TidyTabs!

TidyTabs gives all of your application windows a tabbed interface, letting you enjoy browser-style tabs in Microsoft Office, Windows Explorer, and many other software applications. With TidyTabs, you’ll be able to achieve a level of organization that you never thought possible.

What can you do with TidyTabs? Free up space on your desktop by creating tabbed groups, just by dragging one tab onto another. Build lists of applications that should have tabs and those that should not, by creating either whitelists or blacklists. And don’t worry about having to get used to a totally new GUI, since TidyTabs maintains tabs in a semi-transparent state until you need to use them, automatically hiding them when you don’t.

Best of all, TidyTabs is fully customizable, with every function of the program capable of being configured or disabled completely. And all of this comes to you without any negative impact on system stability or performance!

Check out TidyTabs in action:

Tabbify everything

Tab arranging

Only there when you need it

Discreet and smart

Fully customizable

Sara User The core thing of interest here (besides that even all updates are included in the price, etc.) is the fact that TidyTabs puts the tabs ABOVE the application window(s)* so that you can combine files of several applications into some "project", e.g. some MS Excel files AND some other files pertinent to them, e.g. some MS Word file(s), and so on. (Such "projects", "file groups" or whatever you'd call them, are not persistent yet, though, so this functionality should be added in some update.)

The "Tabs for Office" by, which I mentioned above, on the other hand, put the tabs WITHIN the respective MS Office application, between the ribbon and the data*

(you can also buy subsets, i.e. "Tabs for Excel/Word/etc"., since "Tabs for Office (complete or just for the "Home" Office applications) are just supersets for not having to buy all of these tools one-by-one),

which means that with that these "competing" tools (incl. the ones which have "Office" in their name), you can NOT build up a file set including files depending on SEVERAL MS applications, let alone files from non-MS-Office applications: It's just several MS Excel files/workbooks OR several MS Word files, etc., not some "integrating" combination of those; these - obviously much lesser - extendoffice file sets are not persistent either afaik.

* = This difference also explains the fact that the extendoffice tools come with slowing down your applications while TidyTabs does not.

So it becomes evident now that even beyond extendoffice's much higher prices and limitation to MS applications, there's a BIG advantage of TidyTabs over its "competitor".

While, as said, some "project management", i.e. a list of stored, and then re-loadable file sets, in some (free) update, would make TidyTabs perfect, there is no other "competitor" currently afaik, so at 5.40 per pc, TidyTabs, even in its current shape, is some incredible steal indeed.

Gary Mugford I bought a pro licence back in 2017 because the price was right and the work experience enhancements promised to be pretty worthwhile. I COULD have tried the free version as a preview, but I didn't. The price was almost inconsequential and OF COURSE the product would work.

Probably does on most Windows 7 computers. I use multiple monitors and UltraMon to handle them. UltraMon is indispensable. TidyTabs does not work on my computer. I could have confirmed UltraMon was the guilty party, since it has additions to title captions in the form of monitor swapping buttons. But why bother? The product didn't work and I wasn't going to spend hundreds of dollars of time trying to reclaim a few bucks.

NOT TidyTabs' job to make it work on everything. So, no blame to Nurgo. But be aware that any software you use that meddles with title captions PROBABLY is going to interfere with this product. And I write this after upgrading to the latest available to re-confirm my earlier findings. Too bad. I'd have liked to make this work. Maybe on Win 10 with a different multiple monitor setup? Don't know. But I'll give it a try when I'm finally forced to give up my current computer for something new and spiffy.

Adolphe I just bought Tidy Tabs after trying it, and trying Aqua Snap as well. I would like the developer to know how much I appreciate the philosophy behind those two programs (which reflects on his website, by the way). It's not often I make such compliments, and I try a lot of software. Useful, simple, fast and well explained.

I hope some day he will move on from the Windows 8 aesthetics of Tidy Tabs, but that's a very minor gripe.

V M I just tried ordering this software using Paypal and the company that takes the order said my order did not take and that they will get back to me soon. My concern is that they will not get back to me until tomorrow and I will lose the discount.

May I ask you to look into this please?

Luc User Hello,

Je suis très déçu par ce logiciel (acheté) car il ne garde pas pas les liens entre les applications... chaque fois il faut recommencer !

Tim User Question: will Tidy Tabs ever be updated to support keyboard shortcuts? I've been waiting for over a year for a definitive timeline other than "real soon now". Thank you.

Adolphe I agree the program should, optionally, remember tabs sets between sessions. You can ask all documents opened by the same program to be automatically tabbed together, but if your job requires mixing documents from different programs, you need to re-associate your windows each time you start your computer again.

Also, in some cases, the in-window tabs hinder access to the window commands (minimise, make full-screen, close).

V M Hi,
I tried once again to order Tidy Tabs, actually I have tried three times now. Fastspring in response to the first two failed attempts told me to delete my cookies and reopen the browser which I did twice and still I arrived at a fastspring,com window telling me there was a processing error. After three emails fastspring they told me it was a PayPal problem. I have ordered before on BitsDuJour without issue. Is there some other way to order without going through fastspling?
