Stardock Groupy, which is available in beta, is a windows-management tool. It will allow Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 users to arrange their desktop windows together in the form of tabbed groups. Multiple applications, web apps, documents, and files can be organized into grouped tabs, making apps easier to access and manage.

"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," explained company officials in a blog post.

Users can un-group by dragging tabs off a group. They also can switch between different windows in a group and add related tabs in a way that works like tabs in browsers. Groupy can work with IE, Edge, and Chrome apps/sites simultaneously.

The Groupy beta is available for download as of Nov. 14. The beta version is part of Object Desktop, Stardock's collection of desktop tools that includes Fences, Start10, Multiplicity, DeskScapes, and more.

Stardock said Groupy will be available starting in December as a standalone service for $9.99.
