In the previous version of the Windows 11 development version, Microsoft brought a tabs mode to the File Explorer, which can open multiple folders at the same time like the browser to switch quickly. The advantage of the tabs mode is that it does not require the user to click the windows one by one with the mouse. However, if you are looking forward to this feature, you may have to wait a little longer, because the Windows 11 22H2 version released this year will not support this feature.
Windows 11 version 22H2 is planned to be released in October, but in fact, the current Windows 11 Preview Build 22621 is rumored to be RTM. This version does not support the tab mode, and the current resource manager tab mode only supports the development version.
Microsoft’s Program Manager reiterated that: “Features like tabs in File Explorer will show up to Windows Insiders (between the Dev and Beta Channels) when they are ready, we’re not as “release” based as we used to be as we mentioned in this blog post back in February”.
After the tab mode is turned on, the performance of the File Explorer will drop significantly, so even the test in the development channel is only for a small number of users.
