Microsoft will deduce multitasking in Windows 10 to a new level
Microsoft has gone to meet users and announced a new way to work with multiple applications in Windows 10 – using tabs. This function is called Sets and in the coming weeks will be available to participants in the Windows Insider program. Microsoft recorded a short video to demonstrate the work of the Sets and more about this feature.
The option is a traditional tab, like in a browser, only instead of sites you switch between applications. In other words, instead of several open windows with different software, you will have one in which you can switch between programs. This example shows how you can work simultaneously with a document in Microsoft Word, notes in OneNote, and search for information in the Edge browser to create a presentation without leaving a single window on the screen.
Moreover, if you quit the document or another file, and later open it again, the system prompts you to restore all the closed tabs that you used earlier when working with this file to continue from the same place. By launching a new tab, you can search through the contents of your computer and on the network, get quick access to recently used files, and much more.
Initially, the new function will support only universal Windows-applications, “sewn” into the system. Microsoft hopes that over time, third-party developers will add its support to their programs. About the release dates of the function for ordinary users so far nothing has been reported.
