Stardock released the beta of its new window grouping program, Groupy today. Groupy lets Windows users group their desktop windows together in tabbed groups much the way web browsers allow users to group websites together.
Once installed, users can drag a window to another window and the two will combine into a single window with each window receiving a tab in the title bar. To ungroup, users simply drag the tab off the group.
"It's very useful for trying to organize multiple Explorer windows or Office apps," said Angela Marshall, General Manager of Stardock Software. "With Groupy, your entire desktop works consistently with how your web browser works."
Once a group is created, users can quickly switch between different windows in a group with a simple hot-key or clicking on the tab.
"I spend a lot of time in Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word and my Pictures folder," said Marshall. "Now, I just combine the three together and hot-key switch between them as I work. It's irresistibly helpful in getting things done.”
The Groupy beta is currently available exclusively in Object Desktop which includes Stardock's other popular desktop enhancements including Fences, Start10, Multiplicity, DeskScapes and more. Next month, Groupy will be released stand-alone for $9.99.
