Instead of having multiple tabs within the one big Lotus notes window is there any way to "free' a tab into a separate window. (Like Outlook) Its very annoying as my work necessitates using databases and mail a lot and i want to split tabs into movable windows.

1) for an individual tab, right click on the tab and choose 'open in new window'

2) if you want this to be your default behavior, go to 'file>preferences>windows and themes' and choose 'Open each document in its own window' under 'window management'

You don't say what version of the Notes client you are using. I do know that the first option has been available at least in version 6.5. The second option came later - I see it in the latest client (8.5.2), but I don't know when it was added.

This information is true. The setting you are referring to in #2 has been in 8.5 since release, and has existed through all of the releases. – DaBaer Feb 9 '11 at 17:59
