How to disable Sets on W10

Configurare noua (How To)


Sets in a new feature that Microsoft is building into Windows 10, and it allows you to group apps, documents, and web pages into tabs similar to tabs on a browser.

While working on a project typically users keep multiple tabs in the same window and they switch between them as needed. The same idea is what Microsoft is envisioning with Sets, but with the difference that tabs will extend to all applications. For example, using this tab experience, you can start working on a Word document, while looking into additional content you bring to your project from OneNote or a web page using the same window.

Although Sets a useful feature, it might not be something for everyone. If you don’t to have tabs in apps, Windows 10 includes an option to disable it in the Settings app.
