Looking at this site, it looks like Toolbox will support a 3 panel mode, but it only works with the 15 tools they programmed in and none of them are MS Word, Excel, or notepad.

I think you best bet is to manually resize the windows, or do a dual-monitor setup.  Windows 8 still supports the auto-snap for a 2 panel mode.  If you start there and just make room for the third panel, it wouldn't take too long.  It's a matter of personal preference of course, but I thin I'd rather do that than have to deal with some other program anyway.

Update to Windows 8.1 and you should have a bigger monitor that can handle 1920x1080p resolution see this article.
