Solved Office Tab Free Edition doesn't work

I have used Office Tab Free Edition on Win 7 with no problems. Free download Office Tab Free Edition from offical website now With Win 8 it turns of the "open new window" when you open a second file but it never shows the tabs. Both files are indeed loaded as you can switch from one to the other. Just having that is worse than the original situation with multiple windows. Telling the Tab program to turn of the function doesn't work. The only way to get back to original operation is to uninstall and reinstall Office.

Any advice/comments?

Sorry I can't help you directly. This morning I installed the paid v7.5 32-bit on Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64-bit running Office 2003. Only had time to test it in Word; Office Tab Center setup normally and the tabs operated as expected.

I ran my installer in Windows 7 compatibility mode and, of course, as an administrator.

Good luck!

I contacted extendoffice.com and they sent me the new version of Office Tab Free Edition that they are about to release. It works great. Support like that on a free program is very nice!

Very good news indeed! But it would contribute to our sharing of knowledge if you indicated the version that didn't work and the number of the soon-to-be-released one that does.
