    How to Turn On or Off Tabs in apps (Sets) in Windows 10


    Microsoft had announced a new Windows 10 feature called Sets (Microsoft may end up calling it something else by the time it ships) which would be coming to Windows Insiders as a controlled study. The concept behind Sets is to make sure that everything related to your task: relevant webpages, research documents, necessary files and applications, is connected and available to you in one click. Office (starting with Mail & Calendar and OneNote), Windows, and Edge become more integrated to create a seamless experience, so you can get back to what’s important and be productive, recapturing that moment, saving time – Microsoft believes that’s the true value of Sets.

    Sets: With all the elements that go into a task, sometimes convincing yourself to get started is the hardest part. Sets help you keep webpages, documents, files, and apps connected, while remaining just one click away. When you close a file that includes a group of tabs, it’ll help you bring those tabs back to life the next time you open it. Whether it’s something you pick up later in the day or in a couple weeks, Sets is being designed to help you keep the important things together.

    Add tabs to apps: To help fuel Sets, most apps will be able to add app and web tabs. When you select a link in something like an e-mail, it’ll open in a new tab next to the app you were using. Selecting the plus (+) in an app will take you to a new tab page, which will help you jump to your next location. You might already know where you want to go, or just need a little bit of inspiration. From here, you’ll be able to search your PC and the internet, access customized feeds, open frequently used websites and apps, and get suggestions based on your recent activity.

    Here are a few keyboard shortcuts you can try out:
    • Win+Ctrl+Tab – Switch to the next tab
    • Win+Ctrl+Shift+Tab – Switch to the previous tab
    • Win+Ctrl+1 through 8 – Switch to a specific tab
    • Win+Ctrl+9 – Switch to the last tab
    • Ctrl+T or Win+Ctrl+T – Open a new tab
    • Ctrl+W or Win+Ctrl+W – Close the current active tab

    For more details about Sets, see: Introducing Sets - Windows Insider

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off the Sets feature to have tabs in apps for your account in Windows 10.

    Sets is available for all Insiders who have opted in to Skip Ahead. Since Sets is an experiment, it requires a configuration setting to kick in for it to show up. If you don’t see Sets yet, try rebooting your PC.

    I merged the reg file but it doesn't appear to have worked. How do I get tabs?

    Hey Nick, :)

    It won't work unless you have Windows 10 build 17618 instead.

    You would need to scroll down further on the right side in your screenshot to see it if there.

    MS didn't mention anything about Sets being available for only certain locations.

    As a test if you like, change your location to "United States" and/or language to "English (United States)" to see if Sets may be available after that.

    I just tested by switching to UK location and display language then restarting, and I still have Sets.

    I'm not sure why you don't have Sets available either.
