Earlier this year, we reported that Microsoft is working on a new “Tabbed Shell” for Windows 10. This new Tabbed Shell in Windows 10 will allow users to add tabs to windows and it will work across all the different apps right from modern UWP apps to legacy Win32 apps. If you can’t wait for Microsoft’s native implementation, check out the new app called Groupy from Stardock. Groupy will allow you to organize multiple apps into grouped tabs on your Windows desktop. You can drag and drop multiple apps together to group them into a tabbed interface for better usability.

Key Features:

  • Drag and drop applications together to group them under a common tabbed interface
  • Organize multiple applications and documents together for convenient access
  • Group related tabs together for optimal workflow
  • Manage tabs in quick and natural ways with the browser-like interface
  • Add new tabs to existing groups quickly and easily
  • Mouseover tabs to preview the window contents
  • Copy files between Explorer tabs by hovering over the target tab

Groupy is currently in beta and it is part of Object Desktop family. You can find more details here.
