the Name property on the property sheet.
✦ Add, delete, or reorder the pages. If you want to have more than two
pages, right-click the tab control (or any of its pages) and choose the
Insert Page option from the contextual menu. To delete a page, select

menu. To switch the order of the pages, right-click any of the pages and
choose the Page Order option from the contextual menu; in the Page
Order dialog box that appears, click the Move Up and Move Down
buttons to reorganize the list of pages.
