Tabs option on Anki for MacOS

I've noticed that Anki for MacOS in Full Screen mode opens "Add" or "Browse" as a tab instead of as a new windows. With tabs, the app is more compact and easier to navigate in case you have other apps opened, for example as a study workspace.
Is there a way to open modules (e.g. Add, Browse, Decks) in tabs instead of windows when Anki is not in Full Screen?

Though it's not a huge hassle to just run Anki in fullscreen, open all the modules and then minimize the app it back to normal, but the option to do that without having to go Full Screen would be useful.

    Hi Valentin,

    You may be able to use the 'prefer tabs' option in the system settings to accomplish what you want.
