Multiple documents, each as a separate tab?

I'm new to LibreOffice. I'm coming from WPS Office, which I've been using for a number of years. Before that was Microsoft Office 2003, which I had purchased. I'm moving on from WPS because of commercials.

In WPS Writer, multiple documents are handled as tabs and look just like Chrome and Firefox in that way. Is there a way to have LibreOffice Writer function the same way? I typically work with multiple documents concurrently and having all the windows open at once is something I'm not used to whatsoever!

Thanks :)

Actually, that request was for "which basically allow you to maneuver around long and complex documents very easily", which I've never heard of prior to this.

What I want to do looks like this:

Multiple documents, completely different files, all open at once in a single window, each accessible as a tab, just as different web pages are tabs in your browser.

It's the same issue. No matter if windows are for different files or for several views of the same file.
