        • support windowtabs

          Correct WindowTabs 2013.04.02 please

          Everithing seems to work fine, except this two cases:

          1- Some times you don’t have to do anything, and some other times you have to minimize one Tab Group, and then maximize it again: It enters into a loop… and it’s continuously minimizing and maximizing that tab group. Impossible to work with it. There are only two ways to top it:
          a. kill WindowTab.exe process
          b. Press Ctrl-alt-del and immediately return to windows (just ctrl-alt-del and the escape key to return windows)… this way this loop stops (have no idea why)

          2- You press right-down button…

          • Window appears on second monitor when moved

            I have two monitors, The second one is on the lower right of the left one. When I grab the tab of a window on monitor one, it reduces to an icon. The real contents on the window are obiously moved to a place SE of the lower right corner of the first monitor, which is normally invisible, but for me appears on the second monitor.

            Idea: When moving the window contents away to an invisible place, use the lower right of the displayable area, rather than the lower right of the current monitor.

            Best wishes, Frank

                • the license key

                  i just purchased the portable version.
                  to my surprise, the license key in plain text was written into the settings.txt file without any protection after i clicked the "activate".

                  • super concept / idea but full of bugs (more like beta version)

                    1, WINDOWS 7 64bit - Auto-hidden taskbar is shown when you click a tab (its mentioned before but problem still there)
                    2, OUTLOOK 2010- crashes, unstable, just unusable
                    3, WINDOWS EXPLORER- the more tabs the more it start to do strange things (can not move selected objects ext)

                    Just bought 2 licences the other day (i was so happy when i found this program) i dont want my money back i would pay more but it must work / be stable at least. please let my know how long it will take to fix or I will have to ask…

                    • switching groups enhancements

                      1. mimicking tab switching for group of windows
                      -----------------------------------------------------------
                      1.1 two settable keyboard shortcuts to go to the next or the previous group of windows.
                      1.2 No user interface should appear. So you can cycle trough all your window groups if e.g. none are minimized or easily switch back and forth in between two groups.

                      2. mimicking windows alt-tab & alt-shift-tab
                      ------------------------------------------------------
                      2.1 Quickly pressing alt tab once is often used in Windows to switch back or forth in between two given windows. Similar functionality should be reproduced.
                      2.2. The user interface could be hidden if such a behavior is…

                      • 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.

                        • Support VirtualBox fullscreen mode

                          Windowtabs works great when maximizing a window to full screen. However, VirtualBox's full screen mode works in a slightly different manner as it completely hides the window manager's borders and menus. When going fullscreen in VirtualBox, the Windowtabs tabs disappear. Making it work would be great as VirtualBox doesn't have a tabbed interfaces and many users would love to have that.

                          • Updates should not require entering the license key again. That's an annoying waste of time.

                            I think this is the only software that I have that does that. The software is already licensed and activated. An update should recognize that and not make me dig out the license key every time.

                              Right now when I open a new program, I have to drag and drop it as a tab... What if there were an option to do this automatically when you open a program, this would be great!

                                • WindowTabs not working with password protected word/excel documents

                                  Maurice,
                                  I found a major (at least for me) issue with WindowTabs not working with password protected word or excel (I haven't tested but this issue could very well be with all MS Office documents that are password protected).

                                  Basically, if I have a password protected word document and I double click to open it then the password dialog is not shown and a blank screen is shown when WindowTabs is enabled, however, if I turn off WindowTabs then I am able to see the password dialog box when I double click the word document. Can you fix this issue…

                                      • align tabs more quickly

                                        Instead of a nested menu, just place left/center/right justified buttons in a row, like on the Word toolbar. It will only take one line still, but be quicker to switch.

                                        • Allow multiple sessions

                                          Allow for multiple instances (like 2) of windowtabs. Sometimes it is nice to have tabbed windows on each screen in a multi screen scenario.
