In this chapter you can find more information about the WinNc tabs. You can use all of them at once, or if you do not want to use them do not have to. However, their use for file management much easier.

You can sort them by using drag and drop or you can rename them.

Panel state tabs

The panel state tabs are above menu.

Folder tabs


The folder tabs are above panels. You can set multiple tabs. Each tab contains a path. When the tab is activated by clicking on it, the path is loaded into the panel.

This type of WinNc tab can be pinned, to protect from path changes. When you change a directory on pinned tab, the new directory appears on new tab.

You can add new directory tab with pressing <Ctrl + Enter> on selected directory/archive, or click on the '+' last tab.

You can close directory tab with X at the end of the tabs. If there is only one tab, can not be closed.
