This tutorial explains how to add tabs to File Explorer in Windows 10.

Windows 10 has come with modern settings and many tweaks to enhance the user experience of working with Windows OS. Still, users keep experimenting for new features using third-party tools, plugins, software, etc. I have also found an interesting software for you, named Clover 3 (or just Clover), which lets you add tabs to Windows Explorer in Windows 10.

It lets you open Chrome like tabs in Windows 10 Explorer and options are also exactly the same as available in Google Chrome browser for tabs. You can bookmark tabs, open new tabs for folders, files, close a tab, pin a tab, etc., in Windows 10 File Explorer.
