    I have them too, but no setting option what could we do?

    So I figured out that I do have the settings in the registry, they are:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemSettings\SettingId\SystemSettings_TabWindows_ApplyEnable d
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemSettings\SettingId\SystemSettings_TabWindows_BrowseWin32 Apps

    They just don't appear in my settings view. I checked that all the referenced files exist and the Title/Description locals are available as well. They also appear in the "Windows.UI.SettingsAppThreshold.en-US.pri" file, but I have no idea how to forcibly set the value despite that.

    I also tried to make a new account, hoping that a new account, with a new settings configuration, might show me the option... but it wasn't there either.

    I thought they said Sets weren't only going to select users anymore and everyone should be able to get them, but maybe the previous mechanic to lock people out is stuck on for me. I'm not sure.

    Is there any particular services I need to have running/not running maybe?

    Hello onlykhaz, :)

    If it may help, from the release notes for build 17643.

    NOTE: Some Insiders may see Sets disappear temporarily after installing this build. Sets should return in 1-2 days or upon the next reboot of your PC.

    How to open Chrome 'Windows' in Sets

    Because of the composition of Chrome's Title Bar/Frame UI, Chrome will not open in Windows 10 Sets.

    However, you can create shortcuts to open web pages in 'windows' with Chrome options and have them mount into Windows Sets:

    Navigate to your favorite web page, click the Options button in the upper right of the Chrome UI and add a shortcut to that web page as depicted in the following screenshot:

    The shortcut will automatically be saved to a newly created folder in your Start Menu called 'Chrome Apps'; then you can Pin desired shortcuts to your Start Menu if you wish:
    (You may delete the Desktop shortcut it creates, if you wish, the shortcut in the Chrome Apps folder will remain)

    then, holding Ctrl while you select the shortcut, it will open in the existing Sets window or, it will create a new Sets window...

    ( @Brink , my apologies if this has been covered already but, I couldn't find it!)

    Some strange anomalies in Sets:

    Opening numerous Tabs of folders, into one window, from the Start Menu or Taskbar by way of Ctrl+Select, the Ribbon ends up being squashed on every tab, then the whole window must be Restored down and re-maximized for every Tab! Not good!

    (more to follow...)

    Opening numerous instances of media in the Photos App from it's jumplist will always open in it's own window, you have to drag all the Tabs to one window manually...

    The 'Mute Audio' button is missing when Edge is opened in Sets, (New Tab), as opposed to Edge on it's own...

    Not sure if this is a problem with Sets, but a problem nonetheless...

    UWP Apps hibernate after a period of time rendering the thumbnail audio controls inoperative and thus messes up the Audio Controls Desktop Overlay....

    Cent Browser documents the dedicated windows opened in Sets! No other Chromium variant does!

    For those Desktop Users using Keyboard and Mouse, if you have a mouse with assignable buttons, specifically Ctrl+Click, selecting Apps from the Start Menu, the Taskbar and some jumplists will be a breeze!
    Ctrl+Left Click opens the app in the current/focused Sets window, and switches to it immediately, or opens in a new window.
