Tabbed browsing in the Adobe Community Help Client – simple and easy!


There are many of us who love tabbed browsing for its ease-of-use and also that it keeps the desktop less cluttered! We now bring you this cool feature in the CHC, too. With tabbed browsing, just like in a browser, you can do the following in the CHC:

  • Open multiple pages in separate tabs 
  • View and switch between multiple pages
  • Arrange the order of your tabs by easily dragging and dropping

While tabbed-browsing is very easy to use, and hardly needs any explaining to do, here are answers to some basic questions that you may have:

How do I open a new tab

To open a new tab, click   in the Tab bar, or use the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+T. You can also right-click on an already open tab, and select Add New Tab.

How do I open a link in a tab?
While reading a page, if you come across a link to another page or resource, you can open the link in a new tab in the CHC. All you need to do is right-click the link and select Open Link in New Tab.

 By doing so, you can open a new page without losing context of the page you were reading. You also have options to open the link in your browser or copy the link. 

How do I close open tabs?

 Click the X button on the top-right corner of the tab. You can also right-click in the Tab bar and select Close This Tab.

 If you have more than one tab open, and you want to close all other tabs except the one you are viewing, right-click in the Tab bar and select Close Other Open Tabs

If you try to exit the CHC with multiple tabs open, you get a message informing you about multiple open tabs:

You, of course have an option to turn off this message from the Tab Preference settings.

Can I rearrange the order of the tabs?

Yes, you can. You can move a tab by simply dragging and dropping the tab in a single mouse move.
