Microsoft will launch a new tabbed interface called ‘Set’ in the upcoming Windows 10

Microsoft will soon introduce a new tabbed interface called ‘Set’ in its upcoming Windows 10 Insider program build. The feature allows users to group similar tasks such as apps, documents and websites together in a single window. Microsoft also featured upcoming sets in a preview video that shows how a user can easily use the feature to launch a new tab or jump to one, while working in the same window.
Launching a new tab in a window and scrolling down displays a user’s feed It shows recently opened windows with the Office 365 app that can be launched in a new tab. The set interface employs the user’s Microsoft 365 account to sync across Windows devices, allowing users to close their running tabbed window sessions on one device and restart where they left off on any other Windows PC. This is done in the same way as current web browsers, which can recover recently / previously closed sessions. The company is expected to bring new features to mobile devices soon and its desktop interface can work across standard desktop apps like Microsoft Office, File Explorer, Notepad and many more.
Explaining the feature in his post, Microsoft said, “The idea behind this experience is to ensure that everything related to your work: relevant webpages, research documents, necessary files and applications, are connected and available to you at the click of a button.” Microsoft has also introduced a universal search feature within the set, which enables users to access the Internet through local files, OneDrive and more. The search can be accessed by launching a new tab that has an interface similar to the new tab interface in the Microsoft Edge browser.
The company will initially test the new set interface next week with a small group of Windows 10 testers. After receiving feedback about the new tab features before releasing it for all Windows 10 testers.
