Microsoft is working on a “Sets” feature that will bring tabs to File Explorer and other applications in the Redstone 5 update, which should appear in October 2018. But you can get tabs in File Explorer today without waiting.
Install Stardock’s Groupy
Stardock offers an application named Groupy that adds a feature like Sets to Windows today. It’s a paid application that costs $10 alone, but Stardock offers a month-long free trial. It’s also included with Stardock’s Object Desktop suite of software.
Like the Windows feature Microsoft is working on, Group add tabs to many different applications. You even can mix and match the applications, merging tabs from multiple applications together in one window. You can drag and drop windows onto the tab bar to turn them into tabs, or drag tabs away from the bar to turn them into separate windows—much like working with multiple tabs and windows in your browser.
Like Stardock’s other software, this is a polished experience and is better than running unstable versions of Redstone 5 if you want this feature today. It also runs on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10, so even Windows 7 users can take advantage of this feature.
Microsoft’s SmartScreen blocked the Groupy download for us, but VirusTotal says the file is fine and Stardock has been a trustworthy company for years. If you see a SmartScreen warning while downloading and installing Groupy, it’s safe to ignore.
Use an Alternative File Explorer
