Some time ago there were rumors that Microsoft was building some sort of tab-based version of Windows Explorer for the next version of Windows 10. The first versions were released, but there was still no record of it. that. Indeed, with the release of the Creators Update also came the confirmation that after all, it might just be a rumor. But someone went ahead and created software that lets you do that and more.
It is Stardock Group, and it is currently being deployed in beta.
In the above paragraph I wrote that this software makes you group windows explorer tabs and more, in fact it can group any software that has a window. Of course, it’s not just for an app. You can mix and tab the windows of each software, which means you can group the Windows command line and Spotify together, in multiple tabs of each. But that was just an example, as you can literally tabulate every running software in a window.
And it works on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7.
Using the app can be a bit tricky and you might accidentally create new groups, but with getting used to it you will be using this product as powerful productivity software. This can be especially useful when it comes to small screen devices.
The software will also not defer normal Windows Shell usage, you can still alt + tab to get focus to the selected application, and other shortcuts will work as well.
The app will be released next month for $ 10, but if you’re an Object Desktop customer, you can try the beta now.
