I have many Lyx windows and some tabs. I want to make all of them under the same window.

How can I convert the Lyx windows under the same window with tabs?

    I don't know how to convert them if they are already opened, but you can go to Tools > Preferences > Look & Feel > Document Handling and select the option "Open documents in tabs". – scottkosty May 1 '16 at 14:38

The Drag-Dropping is not working at least in Lyx OSx with my settings but

Lyx > Preferences > Look & Feel > Document Handling and select the option "Open documents in tabs"

works, this is suggested by scottkosty where a small difference with "Tools > Preferences > Look & Feel > Document Handling" with Tools instead of Lyx toolbar link. There may be a way to make the tabs/windows draggable but so far haven't found the option.

If you drag a file, or multiple files, from the windows manager to an existing LyX window, the file(s) will open in tabs.

[This works for me on Windows 10, don't know about other OS's]
