  1. 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.

      • XYplorer not displayed in WindowTabs task switcher

        This is really strange. WindowTabs displays tabs for XYplorer but does not display it in its task switcher as shown here: https://db.tt/Pvk6TJYL

        XYplorer can be downloaded here: http://www.xyplorer.com/download.php

        This also happens for the free version of XYplorer too and I don't think it was ever displayed in WindowTabs task swticher.

          • WindowTabs shortcuts shouldn't be swallowed when sent to non-tabbed windows

            I have mapped 'Next tab' and 'Prev tab' to Ctrl+Shift+Right/Left. That's also the shortcut that is used in Windows text boxes to highlight the previous/next word. I only use WindowTabs with some programs that don't have text boxes, so it doesn't affect me. However, if I go to a window that is *not* tabbed then I can't use Ctrl+Shift+Left/Right any more -- WindowTabs has swallowed the shortcut. Can you stop intercepting these shortcuts if the active window isn't tabbed?

              • support win10

                Replace alt+tab does not work well.
                With new concept of multi-destop in win10, when moving one window of a group of windows to another virtual desktop, only the active window moved to it, not all.

                  • Allow different sized windows to be grouped without changing their size.

                    For instance, I keep my Office Communicator window open but pretty narrow. My conversatio windows however are quite wide. I would like the Office Communicator window to stay the width I opened it at and the conversation windows to stay at the width I set them to.

                      I could provide an option where you could right click on a tab and say “Maintain size” and basically that window would not be re-sized with the other windows. I could also add a hot key so if you dragged a window in while holding down a key – say “CTRL” – it would not get re sized in the group. Is this the kind of functionality your looking for?

                        • Windows Tabs keeps requesting key activation

                          Windows Tabs keeps requesting key activation

                          Our Windows Tabs is licensed and activated, but after about 2 weeks, the license will be shown as non activated and I will need to activate it again. This happens about once every 2 weeks. Any ideas what is wrong?

                            • Modifier in Shift + Mouse Wheel to switch tabs should be configurable

                              Shift + Mouse Wheel seems to be consumed by WindowTabs for next tab / previous tab. However, i need it for horizontal scrolling (in (http://software.jessies.org) Terminator).

                              Please make that feature optional. Or, even better, let the user set the modifier key to any of <disabled>, Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Shift+Alt, etc.

                              • Vista / W7 / W8 Aero Theme compatibility.

                                IMHO, it will be nice, that tabs were looking like "Windows native style", when they attached to the window - to perceive it as an organic whole.
                                Of course, if it possible...

                                • make "Atuo Hide or not" a global configuration

                                  so that users can make tabs auto hide or not by default. for example, i want tabs showing all the time, but it is very annoying to set it for every program every time.

                                    • Auto hide tabs whenever they overlap titlebar, not only when window is maximized

                                      When a window is maximized, tabs overlap the titlebar and will auto hide with the setting "Auto hide maximized." However, tabs will overlap the titlebar not only when a window is maximized, but also when a window is close to the top of the screen. I'd like tabs to auto hide in that case too.

                                        • Click WindowTabs TRAY ICON to list WindowTabs GROUPS

                                          Having a simple list of WindoWTabs Groups would make identifying and selecting a specific group MUCH easier.

A simple list of WindowsTabs Groups that defaulted to "Group 1", "Group 2", "Group 3", etc. would be lightyears ahead of the frustrating search thru the sea of icons on the Windows taskbar. Ideally, we would be able to pin specific WindowTab Groups to the top of the list and be able to right-click and modify the name for a specific WindowsTab Group to something more meaningful to…
