Many users are waiting for Microsoft’s official tabbed file explorer. This has again been postponed to a later date and is proving to be very difficult for Microsoft to implement.
However, as most of you already know, there is a beautifully Windows 11 styled replacement file explorer from a private developer called Yair Aichenbaum. He just released another update with many improvements and some fixes.
Files File Explorer 2.3 includes tabs and many more great features. It’s something you really don’t want to miss. Another big plus is that it is free to use.
