Open different tabs in document library

Many times we want to open a document library in some or the other tabs default open. 

Sometime we want browse tab to open when we click on document library, sometime we want Documents tab and sometimes we might want library tab to open. 

To do this we need to set one parameter in the URL and that parameter is InitialTabId. Check out the following parameters set and observe the different tab that opens based on the InitialTabId set.

This is how we can set the different tabs to open by default when set that in URL.
