What is WindowTabs?
Tabbing is an essential feature of modern web browsers. WindowTabs brings the productivity of tabbed window management to all of your desktop applications.
WindowTabs runs in the background and attaches a tab to each of your application windows. Drag one tab onto another and create a tabbed group. By organizing your windows into logically related groups, you can more easily manage a large number of open windows.
It got open sourced on Github and is no longer maintained by the original developer. See https://github.com/mauricef/WindowTabs

I needed to group all windows of a same program. And I needed to switch between those windows with keyboard hotkey.
I tried Groupy in Object Desktop by Stardock: group well(O), hotkey(O), but bit buggy
I tried TidyTabs: group well(O), but no keyboard hotkey(X)
so now I finally got to know WindowTabs: group well(O), hotkey(O), not buggy(O)
Is no longer discontinued, is now free and open source, see website. Simple, small, free.
where is the installer for Windows? I dont see an exe in github

Not sure why. I think I prefer Offics Tab.
Been looking for this app for so long. QTTabBar does not work too well...
I think these 2 APPs can be used together well. The newer QTTabBar may change ur mind.
