What you need to know

  • StarDock released Groupy version 1.4 today.
  • The update adds support for up to 50 tabs in a window, along with Curtains style support.
  • Groupy is available for $5 at both Steam and directly from StarDock (opens in new tab).

StarDock launched a fresh update for Groupy today, making it quite a bit more convenient. The latest update brings the app to version 1.4, bringing support for opening up to 50 tabs in a single window. There's also support for adding styles from another StarDock app, Curtains, to your tabbed windows.

Other tweaks include a new "close all" button for your tabs, along with new shortcuts and functions for the middle mouse button and tab switching. Here's a full look at what's new in Groupy 1.4:

  • Curtains style support
  • Automatically selects suitable colors when using a Curtains style without custom Groupy parts
  • Expands max tabs in a group from 25 to 50
  • Tab bar remains dark in all apps for foreground state when in dark mode
  • New "close all" button added on the far right of the tab (must be in tabs above mode and tab bar set to fill full width)
  • Enables additional functionality for middle mouse-button in >- Explorer (open folders as new tabs like in a web browser)
  • New option for using ctrl+tab for tab switching (access on advanced options page)

Groupy is a useful tool that lets you group apps together as tabs in the same window. It's a similar idea to what Microsoft experimented with when it was testing "Sets," which ultimately never launched.

Groupy is available now for $5 at both StarDock (opens in new tab) and Steam.

  • Possibly the best productivity app I have been using for a long time. I love it and recommend it for any one using Windows
  • Needs Timeline support imho.
  • Groupy was one of my favorite Stardock apps. I ended up settling on Nurgo Software's TidyTabs instead due to more powerful auto-grouping features and the ability to set and restore group windows to a default size/position on the screen. After trying in vain for more than a year to get Stardock to even express interest in adding similar features, I finally gave up and switched.
