File Explorer is Windows’ default file manager which is Simple and easy to use, but it lacks the feature that all Windows users want which is “Tabbed Browsing”. Sadly, at present, Windows 11 still does not offer a native file manager with a tab system as can be found on our favourite web browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Edge etc. However, you can add Tabbed Browsing to Windows Explorer in Windows 11 with the help of QT TabBar. QT TabBar is the best way to get tabs on your default Windows Explorer, but it is a little tricky to configure it. So. we have discussed the complete QT TabBar setup process in Windows 11 operating system.
What is QT TabBar?
For those who don’t know QT TabBar: It’s a small tool that integrates the tabs and a menu (depending on your selection) into the File Explorer. So want to have tabs in Windows 11 File Explorer? Thanks to three third-party software, QT TabBar.
Microsoft has removed the option of calling up the old File Explorer using the usual tricks with Windows 11 22000.71. Now you can install QT TabBar, but not set up it. But there is a trick, let’s find out.
Install and Setup QT TabBar to Explorer in Windows 11
You need to download QT TabBar and install it as normal.
Enter the control panel in the search and start it (This is still the old environment of the File Explorer and it also starts the File Explorer with the ribbon menu)
Now you have to enter c: \ in the address line and hit Enter
You are now in the “old” File Explorer and can make the settings through the View > Options tab
If you start a new File Explorer window via Windows key + E, the tabs etc have been integrated and you can now make all settings with a right-click.
Let’s see how long the trick will go. But we believe that Microsoft won’t change anything in the old control panel until it disappears completely. And by then, QT TabBar will also integrate a simpler method via update.
