One of the most requested features that Windows 10 Insiders have been asking for is the addition of tabs to File Explorer. Well yesterday, for those 22 thousand+ insiders who voted for this feature, Microsoft released insider preview build 17618 that includes tabs in File Explorer as part of its Sets feature!

Windows 10 Sets is an upcoming feature where you can group documents and apps into one tabbed window that are related to the particular task at hand. This feature was released for testing to a small controlled group of insiders in Insider Preview Build 17063 and was subsequently removed after the test.

With build 17618, Sets are back and with it come tabs in File Explorer. You can now open different folders in the same File Explorer window with each one having their own tabs. This way one File Explorer window can have a tab for the pictures folder, a tab for the documents folder, and a tab for your documents, which you can easily switch between.

That sounds so mean. MS always listens to user's feedback, it took 20 year, because they had to thoroughly test such a complicated feature.
Absolutely true! It's not as if every third party file explorer software had tabs since the times of DOS... Microsoft had to test this feature very thoroughly before releasing such innovation! :alien:

For quite a long time now I have been using explorer alternative , so its not much of a use to me except from some occasional use. But its a welcomed featured and MS needs to improve it more.
