Deployment from source to destination sandbox not installing custom tabs

I have a developer sandbox where I've created a custom tab, and want to deploy it to a corporate sandbox that includes all our production customizations. I tried doing this using the ANT-based migration tool. The custom tab is defined there after the deployment, but it is not showing up on the "All tabs" menu and I also want it to appear in all applications in the target sandbox as it does in the source sandbox, but I can't figure out how to do that. Is there a way for the deployment itself to cause this to happen?

Thanks, David Wright, Gerson Lehrman Group

When Custom TABS deploy from one environment to another, they are set to "DEFAULT HIDDEN" for all profile... It's a security precaution... In  your destination org, you will have to enable it for the profiles which need it
