OfficeTab is a free plug-in for Microsoft Office that brings a tabbed interface to the office suite. OfficeTab adds a tab bar to Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint, just below the Ribbon in Office 2007/10 and below the toolbars in Office 2003, but this position can be changed. This enables you to open multiple office documents easily without crowding the Windows taskbar.
OfficeTab is fully customizable. You can change the color of the tabs, apply any one of the 11 included styles, move the tab-bar from the top to the bottom of the workspace or to the left or right, change tab width etc. You can even assign keyboard shortcuts to quickly switch between opened tabs.
