Stop tabbing my documents!

When you open a document in InDesign and create a new one, by default it opens in this tabbed manner. Now, what if you are one of those people that just can't stay on the document tabs? You prefer floating windows for whatever reason. That's okay. It's your thing. I personally like the tabs but if you don't, I am going to show you how to get rid of the tabs, absolutely once and for all. So let's go ahead and close this document. And with no document open, I am going to change our Application Preferences here, Command+K or Ctrl+K. Under Interface, there is a check box here that's turned on by default.

It says Open Documents as Tabs. Simply turn that off. I am going to go ahead and click OK. Now let's reopen, this time it doesn't really matter what document. I am just going to choose this document here and open it and you'll see that there is no tab. Yay! And there is much rejoicing from those tab haters. Now I have a floating window and I can move it around...
