The next major update for Windows 10 will introduce a new
interface called Sets. Windows 10 Redstone 5 update is bringing
web browser-like tab interface to the UWP and legacy apps. The
tabbed experience could be also enabled in Office 2016
applications and even the File Explorer.
Microsoft today at Build 2018 developer conference announced
that the developers will be allowed to enable support for Sets
interface in their apps. At the moment, only first-party UWP
and legacy app support the tabbed experience but by the end of
the year, the third-party apps will be also updated with Sets.
Microsoft recently released a new Windows 10 Redstone 5 preview
build for Insiders with support for Sets interface in Office
2016 suite, and the software giant is also preparing some nice
improvements for Windows Sets interface.
Sets in Windows 10 could improve the multitasking experience
The coolest thing about Sets is that it improves the
multitasking experience in Windows 10 as you can drag and
drop apps tab within and between windows. Windows 10 Sets
is a simple feature and it basically allows users to switch
between two or more apps in a window. It is useful when you
have to use two apps at the same time, for example, you can
access MS Word, Microsoft Edge in a window while working on
your presentation in PowerPoint.
It is also worth noting that Sets interface is not limited to
the UWP apps as the software giant is also bringing tabs to
File Explorer, and the integration is pretty good. File
Explorer is even easier to use in Windows 10 Redstone 5, as you
can easily open a new tab page by pressing CRTL+T. Furthermore,
the context menu in File Explorer also allows users to open the
folders in a new tab.
Needless to say, Sets in Windows 10 could improve the
productivity and multitasking experience. What do you think
