If you like tabbed browsing in Internet Explorer, you’ll love this add-on for Word 2007/2010.

There should be an image here!By installing the Word Add-in Tabs, you can switch between open documents using tabs. You won’t have to use the taskbar to switch between windows.

Once you download the Word Add-in Tab, launch the installer and complete the steps described below:

  1. Click Accept to accept the end user license agreement.
  2. If any requirements are missing, such as Visual Studio Tools, click Accept to install any necessary components.
  3. Click Install.

Once the installation is complete, you’ll find a Tabs bar underneath the Ribbon. As you open additional documents, you’ll see new tabs inside Word, instead of new windows. To switch between documents, simply click the appropriate tab within Word.
