Microsoft introduces tabs in File Explorer in new Insider build

Posted 08 March 2018 23:26 CET by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Microsoft has announced Windows Insider build 17618 that adds a feature the company calls ‘Sets’. With the feature it’s possible to group together several applications, web pages, documents and files, in a single window and to work with them in tabs.

Initially this will only work with Edge, File Explorer, Notepad, Command Prompt, PowerShell and apps from the Microsoft Store. Microsoft especially mentions the possibility to have tabs in File Explorer. This was a much requested feature by Insiders, according to the software giant.

A subset of Windows Insiders could already try the ‘Sets’ feature last year. Microsoft now enabled it for all Windows Insider that are in the Skip Ahead branch.

Regular users can expect the change later this year, with the release of the Redstone 5 update.
