In what will come as something of a disappointment to many, Microsoft seems to have decided to abandon the Sets feature of Windows 10. This highly-anticipated feature was to bring tabs to apps, making it easier
In the middle of last year, though, Microsoft removed Sets from the Insider builds of Windows 1
Back in June, with the release of Windows 10 build 17704, Microsoft put Sets on hold, saying: "Thank you for your continued support for testing Sets. We continue to receive valuable feedback from you as we develop this feature, helping to ensure we deliver the best possible experience once it's ready for release. Based on your feedback, some of the things we focus on include visual design improvements and better integration of Office and Microsoft Edge into Sets to Improve Workflow If you have been testing the Sets, you will no longer see it as of today's build, however, Sets will return in a future WIP flight. Thanks again for your feedback.
Since then, there has been pretty much been radio s I'm feeling the issue, until Rich Turner popped up on Twitter this weekend, responding to a query about tabs in the console. Richard Turner (@richturn_ms) April 20, 2019
With no official, it has been tweeted by:
The Shell-provided Tab Experience is no more, but adding tabs is high on our to do list. How-To Geek's Chris Hoffman points out – to determine Microsoft's plans from this single tweet.
However, it seems that the tabbed interface for Windows apps may not have been completely abandoned … it's just likely to take a different form
