At last! The clutter of right-hand panes in Microsoft Word is ending and we’re getting tabbed panes. Very welcome news for laptop users with less screen real estate.
According to Microsoft:
“ Now you can switch between multiple panes using a tab UI on the right hand side of the app. The UI will only be visible when you have 2+ panes open. ”
More than one pane invokes tabbed panes.
Panes can still be dragged out to any part of the screen.
