    QT TabBar

    Many browsers allow you to display sites in tabs, QT TabBar is a free utility that brings a similar feature to Windows Explorer, allowing you to display folders in tabs.

    If at first you do succeed, you've probably missed something.

    Lookin good Tony. Looks like a keeper. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Just found a similar offering: ExplorerXP - Freeware file manager for Win2K/XP. Now I'll have to make a decision! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    That looks great, too. Both have features that the other one doesn't, but it looks to me like the ExplorerXP features are a bit more useful. Having said that, I'll stick with QT TabBar for the time being since I've already installed it, but I'd be interested to hear how someone gets on with ExplorerXP.

    Re: QT TabBar

    Being independent of Windows Explorer, I've immediately noticed 2 missing features I've come to rely on: displaying special folders (My Documents etc.) and thumbnail views. I'm fiddling with both programs... maybe in time I could learn to automatically reach for the one most appropriate to what I want to do?

    Does it save the tabs when Explorer is closed? Wasn't clear it did this from the manual.

    It doesn't open up with the tabs you had open last time you closed Explorer, but it does have an "undo closed" feature that lets you open up recently viewed folders. It also has a "groups" feature allowing you to add the currently open tabs to a group, and then open the whole group in one go whenever you want to.
