Windows 10's 'Sets' feature is gone and not expected to return

Microsoft Cancels Windows 10's Sets Designed to Bring Tabs to All Apps

In a follow-up tweet, Turner explained that he was only referring to the Windows Console, and not to Sets overall in Windows 10.

The recent tweet by a Microsoft program manager suggested that that Sets tabs feature may become a thing of the past. Furthermore, it sounds like required quite some effort by developers for it to be implemented.

Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley says "Microsoft dropped plans for Sets", mostly because the feature "wasn't well received or understood".


The concept was that "content that belongs together stays together", so for example, if you click a web link in a PDF, the link would open in a tab attached to the PDF reader rather than opening a whole new window.

Sure, you could switch between apps that you added to a tab stack quickly or control the window of all apps at once, but I never really discovered a way to use Sets effectively to justify the existence of the feature. He later clarified his statement on adding tabs as being in context to command-line windows only and not a general feature across the entire operating system. As such, there will be nothing standing between Windows users and awful artwork. At the weekend WindowsLatest reported that users had started to see end of support reminder notifications in Windows 7, to make this date, and the options available, abundantly clear. The iconic pixel painting application was going to be removed from Windows 10, but in the latest May 2019 Update (1903), warnings of its demise have been removed, and the program remains.

Back in 2017, Microsoft tinkered with the idea of providing Windows 10 users the ability to organize related applications, documents and tasks into one tabbed windows. "It'll remain included in Windows 10 for now".
