Windows 10 apps may get support for tabs

18 April 2017
Surely, many people have tried to open a new tab in Windows 10 applications. This is especially true for new users of the latest operating system from Microsoft, who are not yet accustomed to using web versions of certain services. If we believe the information published by Windows Central with reference to anonymous sources, the support for this function may be implemented in all applications for Windows 10.It is reported that Microsoft specialists are experimenting with Tabbed Shell feature. As you can guess from its name, it allows you to work with tabs in browsers, as well as in other applications for Windows 10. At the same time, since this feature works at the OS level, third-party developers won't have to make any changes to their products: the ability to create tabs will be available automatically. Interestingly, the Tabbed Shell is compatible with any window: both UWP and classic Win32 applications, which means that you can use the tabs in Explorer as well. Unfortunately, it is not yet known whether the new tabbed interface will be available by default, or whether you can activate it by launching two or more windows. In addition, the new feature now exists only as part of an internal experiment and the exact timing of its implementation in Windows 10 has not yet been named. Nevertheless, it is most likely to happen together with the release of the Redstone 3 or Redstone 4 update.
