Super Tabs (for Tab Groups)

#1 Post by mcginn2 » 27.07.2022, 06:02

It would be great if we could group tabs into Super Tabs, to organize groups of tabs.

I have Free Commander open across 2 screens, with one pane across each screen, and with several rows of tabs on each pane. I have the tabs arranged in groups, and I use colours to for some of the groups. This is great, but it would be way better if I could group my tabs under Super Tabs, with one category for each Super Tab. I would like to have more tabs open, but it's getting kind of full. Super Tabs would allow me to organize this much better, and use more tabs.

FreeCommander is an awesome program!

Thank you,
Jim McGinn

Are they by any chance widescreen monitors?

Could you show a photo of your screens with FC running?

But what exactly do you propose?


To make it possible to create separate settings of some Tabs, and then another settings for others? So that e.g. color of font would be traumatically applied to all of such tabs

Or to make a Super Tab, which when clicked would unfold all ordinary Tabs grouped in it [and when clicked again it would hide them]?

Yes, they are widescreen 24" 1080 x 1920 monitors.

Yes, exactly.
It's so I can group tabs from one project in one Super Tab, and then make one more of those Super Tabs (and it's tabs) visible to work with.
This would be very helpful.

Thank you,

You can use "Layouts" for multiple projects.

This has some usability

But come to think to it, I too would like to create a SuperTab for example named Music, that would reveal constant and temporary Tabs like new, edits, Backups Of Edit, Backup, Covers, samples, info[/b], 2022 07, 2022 08 etc. - so that whenever I want to work on music I would just be one click away from a change where I would see all my current music related Tabs; and then to be able to hide them temporarily also with just one click pergormed on such SuperTab

I just hate it when my one line of Tabs extends itself to two and more - because of this viewtopic.php?p=27338 issue and because of overflow of all those names from various areas of interest like the already aforementioned music and then also video, graphic design, coding, etc. which just creates chaos

As FC has many features from Total Commander it should have some of its Tab files functions.
There are commands in TC to store and load set of tabs independend of any other settings
and also in the context menus of tabs.
This can of course also be used in Automatic views.
Windows 11 Home x64 Version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.832)
Everything Version 1.5.0.1315a (x64)
FreeCommander XE 2022 Build 873 64-bit donor
