How to add tabs to Windows Explorer

Browse theWindows explorer with tabs thanks to these applications.

It is almost inexplicable that Microsofttodava has not adopted the tabs in its operating system. Surely in some case you have finished with a thousand open windows and you have asked yourself, but how is it possible?

A few hours ago we were talking about this, since some recreations had emerged as they would be the tabs integrated in Windows 10, not only in the file explorer, but also in any compatible program.

How to have tabs in Windows Explorer

Like the tabs are super cool in the web browser (it would be crazy to think of one window for every web open now), it is also crazy in Windows Explorer.

Ideally, someday Windows 10 will integrate the tabs into the system, perhaps with the anniversary update that will arrive in a few months ?, but in the meantime we have a solution to use tabs or tabs in Windows Explorer: thanks to third-party software.

Specifically, we have two ideal programs, Clover 3 yQTTabBar.

Clover 3, an extension to have Windows explorer challenges

Both are quite similar, but we start withClover 3, an extension for Windows Explorer that basically adds tabs to us, as we would see in a browser like Chrome.

So we can go grouping tabs in the same window, instead of having different windows for each open folder. It allows keyboard shortcuts to open, close and switch between them and we can even add favorite directories to always have them at hand.

Clover 3 is free and you can download it from its official website.

QTTabBar, manage your windows in Windows with tabs

And on the other hand isQTTabBar, a program that had a break a few years ago, but in 2015 it came back improved and fully compatible with the latest versions of Windows.

Like Clover, we can be opening tabs in Windows Explorer. It is available in Spanish, it supports keyboard shortcuts and we can transfer files between tabs by dragging and others.

QTTabBar is also totally free (you can donate to the project if you want) and it is downloaded from its website.
