Microsoft has commenced the beta testing of its new File Explorer tabs for Windows 11. The tabs characteristic for File Explorer is now rolling out to Windows Insiders inside the Beta Channel, and looks to be very near to its launch for everyone on Windows 11.

As per The Verge, the ‘tabs’ function consists of a refreshed layout that makes it less complicated to get quick access to folders or locate favourite files. The updated File Explorer layout consists of tabs to navigate a couple of folders in a single window and the ability to move tabs around freely.

Microsoft, in the beginning, examined the ‘tabs’ feature in apps on Windows 10, four years ago in a function named ‘Sets.’ It included support for tabs inside File Explorer. However, Microsoft eventually cancelled the project and by no means shipped it to Windows 10 users.

Microsoft, on the other hand, started testing tabs in the Windows 11 File Explorer earlier this year, and a move to the Beta Channel hints at its release in the coming few months, reports from The Verge said.

“The Beta Channel will be the place we preview experiences that are closer to what we will ship to our general customers,” explains Microsoft.

This particular beta build is just an update for Windows 11 22H2 (the next big update) that was recently shipped to Release Preview, hence, it is expected of ‘tabs’ to appear for Release Preview soon.
