Working with grouped window tabs

You can set a user preference so that window tabs are opened in groups, instead of each individual document opening in an new window tab.

About this task

With grouped window tabs, when you open an IBM® Notes® application, a window tab opens. Then, each document you open from that application opens in the same window tab. A number in the window tab tells you how many open documents are grouped in the window tab.

To select one of the open documents, select from the number list. To return to the primary view of an application, click the window tab.

To close the active open tab, click the red x at the end of the window tab row. Make sure your focus is on the tab you want to close before you click the x.

For information on how to set up your window tabs to open in groups, see the topic Windows and Themes Preferences.
