Software Product Description

fungusTabs is a free and useful tabbed window manager. The concept came from craeonics and his wish for something to run on Windows that was like Linux's Fluxbox. It just so happened that I had a tabbed window manager already, but it was very limited in capabilities. So we began working together to make it come to life.

The current feature set is somewhat limited, but includes the ability to specify activating, drawing, grouping, moving, positioning, and sizing settings.

No registry entries are made, so just delete the fungusTabs main directory to uninstall.

About Alphaware

fungusTabs has only been tested on XP and 2K and is still a work-in-progress, so is certain to contain some bugs. If it crashes (which hasn't happened here in quite some time, but you never know with alphaware,) leaving windows "lost," just restart it and then shut it down normally. This should recover all of the lost windows and make them visible again.

Tabbed Windows?

Okay, we all know what a tab is, right? So what fungusTabs does is place a tab on the outside of each main, or top-level window. You may then group the tabs together to form tab sets. What a tab set does is present all of its windows in a familiar bar of tabs, one tab for each window in that tab set group. In addition, only the tab set's active window is shown; all of its non-active windows are moved off of the desktop. What you end up with is a desktop with fewer windows displayed but with ready access to them all.

Pros: I have fond, fond memories of this thing from back in the day. Don't think there's anything anywhere quite like it.

Cons: Too buggy to be useful for very long.

Other Thoughts: Wish you'd pick it up again or that somebody else would!
