How to Add or Remove Open in New Tab context menu in Windows 10


Microsoft had announced a new Windows 10 feature called Sets (Microsoft may end up calling it something else by the time it ships) which would be coming to Windows Insiders as a controlled study. The concept behind Sets is to make sure that everything related to your task: relevant webpages, research documents, necessary files and applications, is connected and available to you in one click. Office (starting with Mail & Calendar and OneNote), Windows, and Edge become more integrated to create a seamless experience, so you can get back to whatís important and be productive, recapturing that moment, saving time Ė Microsoft believes thatís the true value of Sets.

Sets: With all the elements that go into a task, sometimes convincing yourself to get started is the hardest part. Sets help you keep webpages, documents, files, and apps connected, while remaining just one click away. When you close a file that includes a group of tabs, itíll help you bring those tabs back to life the next time you open it. Whether itís something you pick up later in the day or in a couple weeks, Sets is being designed to help you keep the important things together.

Add tabs to apps: To help fuel Sets, most apps will be able to add app and web tabs. When you select a link in something like an e-mail, itíll open in a new tab next to the app you were using. Selecting the plus (+) in an app will take you to a new tab page, which will help you jump to your next location. You might already know where you want to go, or just need a little bit of inspiration. From here, youíll be able to search your PC and the internet, access customized feeds, open frequently used websites and apps, and get suggestions based on your recent activity.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17639, Microsoft has made it easier to open a folder, library, or drive in a new tab from within File Explorer.

By default, the Open in new tab context menu is available when users right click or press and hold on a folder, library, or drive in File Explorer.
