Using Tabs In Internet Explorer 7

My Little Tabbies
Windows XP/Windows Vista (With Internet Explorer 7 Installed)

What is "tabbed browsing"? As much as Firefox and Internet Explorer want you to think of it as a "big deal". It's not. Actually, it will appeal to the neat freaks among you because you can browse many sites in a single browser window. This differs from the way TC normally browses the web, each link opening in a new window and the taskbar showing "17" for 17 browser windows open and minimized. Well, with tabbed browsing you have 17 Web sites open, all in a single window.

Above you can see that we have four pages opened in tabs. By clicking on a tab you can view the page without opening a new browser window. Alternately, you can switch tabs by clicking on the tiny down arrow (just to the left of the first tab) and selecting the page you want to view or you can click on the icon which looks like four squares. And if you're a keyboard fan, you can browse between tabs by pressing CTRL+TAB or CTRL+SHIFT+TAB or switch to a specific tab number by pressing CTRL+n (where n is a number between 1 and 8)

Below you, as you can see, by clicking the icon which looks like a green plus sign and a gold star, you can add any site open in a tab to your favorites - or you can add all the sites (whether visible or not) which are open in current tabs to your Favorites.Tabs Figure 2


Don't Like Tabs? No Problem - Here's How To Turn Them Off
Windows XP and Windows Vista - Internet Explorer 7

Sometimes just because something is the newest rage (tabbed browsing was ushered in by Firefox, Opera and some private brand browsers like Maxthon and Crazy Browser which use the Internet Explorer engine) doesn't mean it's your cup of cappuccino. You might like to have Internet Explorer work just like Internet Explorer 6 did. If you're one of those who don't think much of tabbed browsing and want to go back to the "good old days" when opening pages in a new window (which still has a certain appeal) was the way things were done, you have the option to turn off tabbed browsing in Internet Explorer 7 by doing the following:

- Open Internet Explorer
- Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
- Click the General tab, and then, in the Tabs section, click Settings.
- Clear the Enable Tabbed Browsing check box.
- Click OK twice.
- Close Internet Explorer and then open it again.
