Organize your files using tags

Tagging software for individuals and teams, Tabbles takes you beyond folders and drive letters.

Tag any file

Tabbles can tag any file type on any file system: the tagging is stored in a database. Tabbles won’t mess up with your file names or leave hidden files on your disk.


Let Tabbles automatically create tags and tag your files based on their path, their name and their content or data-mine information using regular expressions.


Write multiple and searchable comments on files, bookmarks and emails in a chat-like fashion, along with your team. Each comment shows the author and its timestamp.

Search everything

Tabbles unified search box can search through file name and paths, as well as tags, comments and file content.

Move files in Explorer…

…and the tagging follows! If you move, rename or delete a tagged file in Windows Explorer, the tagging will follow and won’t be lost (or even some 3rd party file managers)

Google Drive, Dropbox… 

Tabbles’  file stream support and  Folder Synchronization features, let you tag files on any synchronized cloud storage or file stream tool with your team. See howto’s for Google Drive and Dropbox/Sharepoint.

Emails, Bookmarks

Tag Outlook emails and bookmarks on any browser, and find them along with your files inside your tags.


Let Tabbles scrape your drive(s) using regular expressions to data-mine sensitive information (email addresses, credit cards or social security numbers) or  names from a list and auto-tag files.


Tag, auto-tag and share your tagging with your colleagues. Tag on local disks, network drives and in the Cloud, manage users and groups through granular permissions.

File Previews

On local disks or USB

Tabbles can tag any file type and folder on your PC’s hard disk, for any file system that Windows can read.

Tabbles works on USB disks and sticks as well: you can setup a Cloud account to have your tags synchronized across multiple devices.

On shared drives

Use Tabbles to collaboratively share your tagging with your colleagues on your network drives and use chat-like file comments to communicate. It works on any file system.

The auto-tagging rules work on shared folders as well and your SysAdmin can use Tabbles granular permissions to define what each user and can do and on what disk(s).

In Google Drive, Dropbox…

Using Tabbles Folder Synchronization and file stream support features, you can tag files on any cloud storage and file stream tool.

Using tag sharing and Folder Synchronization, you can tag files in your cloud folders along with your colleagues, wherever they are. See how to setup Google Drive (file stream) and Dropbox/SharePoint.


All data in one place

Tabbles collects in tags all your important files, bookmarks and Outlook emails in one place.

Search by tag, comments, path and content in one search box.

Auto-tagging rules

Let Tabbles automatically tag all your files based on powerful rules.

Once you have setup the rules, Tabbles will listen to every new file you create (or save) and tag it accordingly.


You can use Tabbles in Cloud mode, have it installed on 3 PCs and use your tagging from all of them.

You can have your files tagged on Dropbox, Google Drive (file stream) or on your NAS.


Document management

Use Tabbles to manage documents by sharing your tagging with your team and communicate using chat-like file comments, on local disks, network drives and in the Cloud.

SQL Scripts allow you to monitor the database and export data.

Users and groups
