  1. The operation is wrong with multi display

    • It seems that wintabs keeps added up memory over a day. 700 meg or so.

      It seems that wintabs keeps adding up memory over a day. 700 meg or so. I just use it for outlook 2016 on windows 10 64bit enterprise.
      Then outlook 2016 gets really slow to switch between tabs. I have used wintabs for several years now. This just started over the last month or so. I stop wintabs, restart it and then outlook speeds up again.

            • Set hotkeys on a tab to tab basis

              Would be great if you could set a specific hotkey for each tab in a workspace, so instead of using a hotkey to cycle through them one by one you could jump directly to whichever you want.

              • Works with every app except putty

                I've been using the old windowtabs version in Windows 10 until recently when it just stopped working. I installed the new latest version on my desktop and laptop and I get tabs for all applications except for the one app I actually need it for, putty. Why do tabs not show up in putty?

                  • conflict with word2013 & adobe acrobat 11 in win10 x64

                    Don't know if this only on me, but when activate windowtabs, word2013 can't select any text, acrobat can't select or drag page. It force me to disable on them. Windowtabs has a long time not updating at all.

                            • Display tabs for all hidden or out of focus windows, or recent windows

                              I often need to get between a small window and a larger window, but when working in the larger window it hides the smaller one behind it - it would be wonderful if WindowTabs could show all obscured, all background, or a few (say up to 5) recent windows as tabs on whatever window is currently in focus - this would make switching between windows in this sort of case much easier, I wouldn't have to rearrange the smaller ones so they aren't fully obscured.

                                        After upgrading to Windows 10 I am seeing null tabs hanging around like zombies. It looks like some tabs are never truly erased from memory when a window is closed, which keeps a tab in the UI and history that is disconnected from any window.
