What does that mean? Press the Tab key?

I think that's a totally different sense of the
word "tab."

In the Windows GUI, a particular type of
window is called a "tabbed page." To open
a tabbed page, you click its tab.

Tabbed pages are most commonly used
for property sheets.

When used as a verb "tab" usually means
to move the cursor by pressing the Tab key.

Different thing entirely.
