TreeTabs2 Documentation

More documentation will follow shortly!

I don't understand why so many corporate software vendors make changes to their software that users don't want. Software is supposed to be designed for the users, but too many big corporations don't understand that.

To fix this:

  1. Type about:flags in the address bar
  2. Search for sidebar
  3. Change Sidebar extensions in browser sidebar to disabled

  1. Click the Restart button, or manually restart Opera

Groups are similar to folders - both are just containers that store tabs. Tabs get put into both by manually dragging and dropping them onto the folder or group.

Here is an example showing folders, groups, and a tab tree. All “parents” show the number of children in a tiny overlay on the favicon. Notice how folders can be named (unlike tabs), and nested within other folders.

Folders, just like tree “branches” can be collapsed by clicking on the parent icon:

Here, the smaller group is active, so you can't even see the tabs that are in the larger “ungrouped” group:

It depends on how you like to organize your tabs. Folders let you keep everything on one screen, optionally minimized/collapsed into a tidy label. Groups let you work with a group of tabs (say, for a specific project/task) without being cluttered by a bunch of tabs from another project/task.

Hi Thomas, is it not clear how to add open tabs to groups or folders… So far I just ended up dragging the tabs from Ungrouped to a new Group. Seems to be working… Is that how it works? Thanks!

Yes, use Drag&Drop to put tabs into folders and/or groups.

I am testing a new feature that will automatically move tabs into folders when the web address matches a rule that you could define. For example, tabs for could automatically get moved into a group called YT. Until that gets implemented, tabs must be manually dragged & dropped.

Hi Tom Is there a way to have the TT2 window stay popped up after opening a tab? I like to click through tabs, but the window keeps closing. If not, I'd like to request this feature.

Thanks and love TT2 !

Tom, do you mean the setting that I just documented at the top of this page? If not, can you paste a screen shot?
