      • Bookmarks

        I've tried a number of 'Tabs' programs, but I think yours is the best for a number of reasons. Now, if you could add a 'bookmarks' function (like web browsers) for Windows Explorer, it would soar ahead of the competition. Perhaps with a function to open 'bookmarks' in a new 'current' tab.

                • Why does not PhotoScape get a tab?

                  With the latest version of WindowTabs works god. But when I start PhotoScape I get no Tab.

                  In an earlier version of WindowTabs it worked?

                  • MSHTA applications not showing in the program list or in the task switcher

                    MS-HTA applications not showing in the program list or in the task switcher. This makes the task switcher useless. Since window tabs tends to alter the alt tab order, this add-on is very useful and almost required. Please correct.

                        Inactive tabs are too Transparent. It would be nice to be able to adjust transparency level for tabs & also to change tab Font & Color.

                        • Switching of tabs with mousewheel

                          This would improve the user expirience very much.
                          Also maybe the possibility to activate a tab by hovering the mouse cursor over it. Hovering time should be adjustable.
                          Thank you.

                          • Any help for the crashing?

                            Since a few weeks ago, the program always crashes when I start running it. Using Windows 8; 64-bit. Running it as Administrator or re installing an older version of WindowTabs doesn't help. Any ideas? Thanks.

                                  • Support multiple rows of tabs like in Wintabber

                                    For a large number of windows (like PuTTY windows) it would be useful to show rows of tabs, instead of making the tabs very small. This would sacrifice some vertical space but it would let you group a large number of windows together while still seeing the title of each window.

                                    • my license key no longer works, despite having WindowTabs for years. sent several e-mails. please help.

                                      years ago, i purchased WindowsTabs; and, have been very happy with the product. i rely on it heavily. Infrequently, i will get messages indicating the need to re-activate my license key. Most of the time, the issue resolves itself in a short time. This time, however, it has been weeks. i noticed that there is an option for an offline activation; and, i have sent several e-mails; but, have yet to receive a reply.

                                      • Distinguish by window class

                                        It would be nice to distinguish windows by class. For example, the mintty terminal has a command-line option to set the class (e.g. to distinguish between local shells and ssh sessions). But WindowTabs still treats all as one application "mintty".
