Although Microsoft hasn’t talked about this feature, we can see from the screenshots that tabs work very similarly to tabs in your web browser. You can open multiple tabs for each section of File Explorer or folder. Also, you have an option to create new or close open tabs, and the feature works in the dark mode. Since there’s not enough information, it’s unclear whether this will be the new default experience for Windows 11 users. If so, it’s also unknown if users will be able to disable it. Or if the company is planning to make it an optional feature you have to turn it on manually. You can follow these instructions if you want to try this feature on Windows 11 build 22572.
