Most were expecting the multiple tabs feature with File Explorer after the viral leaks of Windows 11 on the internet. Windows 11 mostly adapted the modern design from the Windows 10X or the next-generation Windows concepts posted on Youtube. File explorer appeared with browsers like tabs in the concept videos, which looked elegant and the most reliable feature.
As of now, Microsoft has no plan to add tabs to the existing File Explorer but we have got you a better cover. A bunch of Github developers builds the modern Get Files app to access files and folders on Windows. Get Files has got an elegant design with multiple tabs features.
Get Files is compatible with the latest Windows updates and new APIs to enable all features of the existing File Explorer. It is easy to access the files in a more simplified way on drives, desktops, downloads, pictures, documents, and external USB drives.
Let’s look at the further steps to download and install Get Files on Windows 10 or 11. Later we will look at its multiple tabs and other features.
