As simple and unimportant as they might seem, tabs are in fact a great invention that made web browsers even more convenient and effective for their users as they were before. Seeing their efficiency and handiness, developers started including tabs in other types of applications as well, such as file managers. As you’ve probably guessed from its name, Office Tab Free Edition brings the handy tabs to the 3 most popular applications of the MS Office suite: Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

Office Tab Free Edition provides the neat tabbed user interface for the aforementioned applications of the Microsoft Office 2010, 2007 and 2003 editions. Older editions are not supported. Anyway, though most of us would expect it to be a minimalistic application that only adds the tabs to these applications and offers no other functions or options, Office Tab Free Edition is not like that. It is actually a pretty comprehensive tool that comes packed with a lot of additional features and options. For example, it lets you customize the style and the colors of the tabs in numerous ways. Many other options are also available, such as selecting the tab bar position or support for using hotkeys to change the status of the tabs.

In conclusion, Office Tab Free Edition is a very handy application that enables you to easily open, view and edit multiple Office documents at the same time, in a tabbed window.

webcs Very practical and useful for business users, the only flaw was that it did not provide a free version for Office 2013.

Tracy Ansell I downloaded this software (free version) to try it out. I get really upset with software that has a free label when it really isn't free but indeed a trial version that you can not get rid off continuous popups to upgrade even after you have uninstalled the program. Sad thing is that it could be a nice little piece of software that I would have maybe considered paying for if it wasn't for the underhanded programming involved. I would never recommend a software that does not allow you to uninstall with out major headaches. I still can not get rid of the nasty little popup every time I open word. Do not download this software!
