Tab Groups

Description

Remote Desktop Manager is great for running many sessions at once by using its Embedded/Tabbed display mode. It's especially true when using multiple remote control technologies at the same time. No longer will you have to dig in your task bar to locate the session of interest, you have them all running in tabs within the same tool used to launch them.

But when you reach a certain number of running sessions, it may become difficult to identify them using only their name. To improve user experience for those of us that love embedded sessions, we created a feature to filter the tab pages, it is called the Tab group.

Settings

The tab settings are found in the User Interface side menu of your session properties.

Simply type a name in the Tab group to create a tab group when launching an instance. You can see it in action in the image below

When the All group is selected, it performs no filtering. When you select another group, it hides all the sessions that do not match with the filter. In the example below, I've adjusted two sessions to have the same category.
