The Sets interface is not coming to your computers with the
next Windows 10 update codenamed Redstone 5. Microsoft today in
a blog post announced that they’re taking the Sets feature back
and it’ll be released to the Insiders again when it’s ready.
The report suggests that Microsoft is planning to improve Sets
integration in apps like Edge browser and Office suite before
the public release.
Windows 10 Sets approach is similar to the tabs in browsers. In
other words, Sets allow users to operate multiple apps with
just a single window of the program running on the screen.
It’s quite obvious that Sets feature won’t ship with next
update for Windows 10 as Microsoft wants to continue the
development of this feature to ensure it delivers the best
possible experience before it’s ready for public release.
“Starting with this build, we’re taking Sets offline to
continue making it great. Based on your feedback, some of the
things we’re focusing on include improvements to the visual
design and continuing to better integrate Office and Microsoft
Edge into Sets to enhance workflow. If you have been testing
Sets, you will no longer see it as of today’s build, however,
Sets will return in a future WIP flight. Thanks again for your
feedback,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar said in a blog post.
Windows 10 Sets feature is indeed useful and the company plans
to bring it to the universal apps, and as well as the
traditional Win32 apps.
Microsoft will allow users to enable this feature in Win32
software, such as File Explorer, Microsoft Office,
Notebook and other titles. It appears that it has hit some
roadblocks, especially because some apps come with customized
Microsoft apparently thought of that in advance and plans to
polish the tabs integrations in apps before releasing it to the
public next year.
