It’s official: File Explorer in Windows 11 will get a tabbed interface

Microsoft at the Windows Powers the Future of Hybrid Work event announced several new features that will be coming to Windows 11 File Explorer in the coming months. Of course, many of the changes are already available in the system’s Dev and Beta preview builds. In particular, insiders can already appreciate the updated home page with pinned files and recent activities, the redesigned Share dialog, and the integration of File Explorer with OneDrive.

Microsoft also confirmed that File Explorer in Windows 11 will get the long-awaited tabbed interface. This feature is not yet officially available to members of the Windows Insider program, but it has been hidden in builds of the system for several weeks.

It is worth noting that Microsoft has not indicated any release dates for the announced features. They may very well be part of the Windows 11 Fall Feature Update (version 22H2), but they could also be released to the release version of Windows 11 along with one of the cumulative updates. There is no information on this yet.

Microsoft has paid special attention to the contextual capabilities of Windows 11. For example, the Share dialog box will now automatically suggest contacts with whom you may want to share the selected content. This significantly reduces the number of clicks and speeds up the process of sending files to colleagues. The company says that similar contextual features are being implemented in all system components, including the Start menu, Microsoft 365 apps, and so on.

Focus (formerly Focus Assist) is now tightly integrated with Notification Center, allowing users to launch productivity sessions with a few clicks without first launching the Clock app.

And finally, when you move windows to the top of the screen, a new anchor bar will appear, which will make it easier to place windows on the screen according to the selected layout.
