Review: Office Tab brings seamless tabs to your favorite Office programs

Add tabs to Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for easier viewing and editing of multiple documents.

Office Tab brings beautiful, useful tabs to Word, PowerPoint, and Excel in a matter of seconds. The design is so perfect that you'll wonder if it actually came from Microsoft, itself. If you want all of your documents in one window, this is a phenomenal way to do it.

This program works with just about every version of Office, from 2003 all the way to Office 2013. It doesn't work with every Office program, but it supports PowerPoint, Excel, and Word. Those are probably all the programs you'll need anyway. Unlike your browser, multiple Office tabs don't seem to put much extra weight on your processor. You can do just about anything you want with the tabs. You can change the color, lock the tab in place, or close all of the tabs around it with one click. As far as settings, you can change the ways tabs behave in one program without changing the others. Office Tab adds an extra bar to Windows, but it doesn't take up enough space to be a problem. The only downside to this program is that it costs $25 to unlock the full version.

Office Tab offers a fantastic way to increase your productivity and comfort in all of the most popular Office programs. Though it's a shame you have to pay that for something Office should already have built-in, it's more than worth it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Office Tab 9.51.
