    Tabbed file explorer for Windows 8?


    Is there a utility which integrates with Windows 8's File Explorer and gives tabs? I don't want dual pane. Just tabs. And I want it to integrate with Windows 8's own File Explorer preferably.

    Do a software search for "explorer tab utility" or get a better third-party file manager.

    This is pretty good but little unstable. Causes explorer.exe crashes sometimes.

    Found another one QTTabPro but it didn't look as awesome as Clover. So I'll just wait till Clover becomes more stable :P

    You could always try WindowTabs

    Add Tabs to Any Application. - WindowTabs

    You will need to pay to get the full version though.

    What is WindowTabs? I didn't understand what it does.

    It does the same things as Clover Tab, maybe more.
