Clover Comments

Very convenient, but has problems that some may make do with

It's pretty easy to use it, you can use ctrl + t to create a tab, ctrl + w to close it... Almost like with chrome!
Unfortunately, it updates too frequently for my tastes (almost daily), which interrupts my workflow too much, even though the updates are fast.
I just wish you could disable them or the updates were less frequent, plus you don't even know what is updated since the update UI is in chinese.

Clover is probably the best tabs solution for windows right now (I mean, aesthetically), but since the 3.2.7 update (2017-01-19) it has a VIP option, wich means that the free version comes with adds, so be aware of that.

about Clover and xplorer² · · -2 Helpful

works fine from Windows 7 til Windows 10.
Although I use xplorer² I always appreciate the multi tabs when using the native browser.
I'm so sad that it is discontinued

Great, fave extension to Windows ever!

To resolve issues on Windows 8/8.1/Blue[copy-paste from reddit, comment by ]:

In Explorer window go to View -> Options;
In opened Folder Options window go to View tab, scroll down to "Launch folder windows in a separate process" and make sure it's UNCHECKED.

Also, right click exe and disable DPI scaling if the above doesn't work. Another method you can try is setting compatibility mode to Windows 7, but the tips above should be enough to make it work.

That's it- Clover should be running and kicking again!

Good Luck!

Clover is beautiful. But...

It doesn't work very well in Windows 8.1 and even worse in Windows 10.

Shame the Author has dropped it as it just needs a few tweaks to stop it crashing.

Sad to see this useful and well designed program go to the Recycle bin. :(

Anyone else using this on Windows 10? How's it working for you? I was having really annoying issues and had to uninstall it. I really need tabs in Explorer, but qttabbar simply doesn't cut it.

Good overall

It's very clean, although Yandex hasn't provided any skins for it yet.

I was running it on Windows Vista, and sometimes it loaded a bit slow, other times it crashed. I'd considered again in the future though.

For now, I'll use QTTabBar for my customized shells on Windows.

Really nice tab-browsing of folders

about Clover and Listary · ·

Clover is really nice for tab-browsing your folders on your windows machine!

My only issue is that is breaks the functionality of Listary which I use for browsing my folders - but Listary is working on Clover support for version 4 :)

It's quite good

about Clover · ·

In comparison to other tab addons for Microsoft Explorer this one I found the the most stable, the most good looking, and the fastest. No clippings, no ugly toolbars, no crap, just what you want. The only complaints I would have is disability of setting icons for bookmarks bar, and no ability to hide the menus, having them behave as they do on default in bare explorer. Aside of that It's really comfortable even with mouse only (it has hotkeys).
