How to Start SourceTree for Mac with Tabbed Windows

When I start SourceTree on my Mac, it ALWAYS comes up with separate windows for each repository, and I have to click the "Merge All Windows" menu option to coalesce them into a single window. I think in the past it always came up in tabbed mode.


How can I fix that?

I came here because this feature stopped working after a clean install of macOS. You probably need to configure macOS correctly:

defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist AppleWindowTabbingMode -string "always"

Hi Stefan,

thank you for suggestion. Command you showed sets tabbing mode for all applications in macOS, it is not convenient for example for Double Commander. I prefer to set tabbing mode only for SourceTree:

defaults write -app SourceTree AppleWindowTabbingMode -string "always"
