    on a side not now that 10 has been out awhile has anyone run across app for tabs that actually works in 10? not a explorer replacement or a stand-alone explorer type app.
    QTTab bar is what your looking for.

    For dual panel 7Zip is enough for me, to get four I just run 2 instances.Click image for larger version.

    Quizo's fork of Qttabbar lets you:
    a. have not just 1, not just 2, but even 3 panes besides the navigation pane... however I wouldn't recommend 3- it's messy. (2's fine, 3's a crowd).
    b. colour many areas of the explorer window (and hence control panel) so you don't have glaring near-white backgrounds.
    c. appears to be stable

    It was a relief to get the backgrounds matching everything else and reduce eye-strain.

    That said, I use XYplorer (1 or dual pane +navigation pane) mostly, but inevitably run into explorer from time to time.

    File Explorer is incredibly stable and the separate windows are easier to work when using other programs. I can go directly to whichever file I need and have left open without finding the tab- I don't begrudge people who want this but Microsoft's changes often lead to breaking things that work perfectly and I wouldn't want to see File Explorer broken through buggy changes shoved through Windows Update.

    Remember reading this thread a while back (not bad with my brain). For years I used Better Explorer, albeit I found with three monitors there really was no reason for any other Explorer look alike. . .

    It will be a long time before MS fixes this.
    They never fixed the random scroll bug(s) in W7's Windows Explorer.

    I expect the justification will be, it is better than the file managers that are included in other mobile devices.

    From the article:
    Every other OS has this feature and Windows is severely lagging behind
    THAT is so a Bxxl Sxxt comment, if I ever read one! Which operating systems come with tabs(remember they said every other)? How hard is it to open a 2nd, 3rd or 4th instance of FE?

    I spend a lot of time in File Explorer and separate File Explorer windows (and ALT TAB) works perfectly fine, so I don't really get why it's such a popular request? I certainly don't get why it would be a priority item, when I've seen more important suggestions on UserVoice? Is it tablet users who need this feature maybe?

    Anyway, is it possible the traditional File Explorer is being replaced with something else altogether?
    I don't get the need for tabs either. At most I snap two File Explorer windows to the left and right sides using Windows Snap, when I'm specifically moving files between folders and need to check both at the same time,

    Every Linux Distro (I've tried) can do twin panes and tabs.

    Apparently Mac users don't understand the concept of file management, so FE is superior to whatever the OS X thing is (Finder?).

    FE works well enough for simple file management (i.e. moving files between two folders).

    When I'm working with videos I need at least 4 locations open (3x source and 1x destination).
