Home » News » Microsoft Sets may never come to Windows 10 PCs

Microsoft officially announced its plans to cancel Sets for Windows 10. This is actually one of the most popular features among Insiders.

Microsoft initially planned to add Sets so as to offer tabs support to File Explorer and some other apps.

One Twitter user first spotted the change and reported that Windows 10 v1903 does not come with the rumored Tabbed Console.

Apparently, Microsoft changed its mind as the feature is no longer available in  the latest Windows Insider builds. Recently, Rich Turner, Senior PM of Microsoft, confirmed the news by responding to the tweet.

However, Mr. Turner also confirmed that Microsoft is determined to add tabs to the console. Sets has always been one of the most appreciated features of the upcoming OS version.

Apart from File Explorer, users also wanted tabs support for PowerShell, Linux Bash shells on Windows, and Command Prompt consoles.

Windows 10 users want Sets back

It seems that the news disappointed many users. They started inquiring Mr. Turner if Microsoft is planning to go with another strategy for bringing tabs back.

Some of them even went as far as suggesting the feature would not be available ever gain. Others believe that the tech giant postponed Sets temporarily and will bring it back in Windows 10 20H1.

Many also added that Microsoft should not have spent so much time and energy on Sets if they didn’t plan to release it.

That’s fine, but it’s a shame they wasted so much time on it when so many users really just want File Explorer and Console tabs.

Another Windows 10 user referred to Sets as a perfect productivity package.

no plz don’t do this it was the best feature, Sets with embedd edge, TImeline and Cortana. A perfect productivity package.

As a quick reminder, there are a few third-party apps out there that provide tabs support to Windows 10 users. Still, Microsoft should definitely reconsider the possibility of providing native tabs support to Windows 10.
