File Explorer on Windows 10 may get tabs with new Tabbed Shell feature

Microsoft may bring new Tabbed Shell feature for File Explorer on Windows 10. According to the new reports, the company is currently experimenting with a new feature called “Tabbed Shell”, which will bring the tabs for all app in Windows 10, including the File Explorer.

Tabbed Shell will be an OS-level feature which will work with all apps. By default, Tabbed Shell works with any app window, whether it be Photoshop, File Explorer, or Microsoft Word. Much like in Edge, you’ll find a tabbed interface at the top of a window where you can switch between instances of the same app. Also, developers will be able to adjust titles, tab colors, create custom New Tab experiences and more.

It’s unclear when Microsoft will release the feature to the public. However, we can expect this new feature to show up with Redstone 3 or Redstone 4 in 2018. Microsoft has already released Redstone 3 Insider build for Fast Ring members for testing.
