Still OK

about QTTabBar · ·

Still works pretty well under Windows 10 but has some problems with scaling on high resolution. I can recommend it for tabbing in Windows Explorer, but looking for some more modern solution at the same time.

From Clover

Comment by Tyrand
about QTTabBar · Apr 2017 ·

I have started to use QTTabBar instead of Clover on Windows 10 because Clover was becoming very unresponsive on all versions I've tried - It was a shame since it worked fine in Windows 7.

All I'm saying atm is that QTTabBar is VERY responsive - much better than Clover - it opens straight to the tab rather than what Clover did (Open the window and close it just to re-open it in Clover.)


it is hard to use

It should be noted that that v. works fine on the Windows 8 CP, but not at all on the RTM or OEM. It installs fine, however neither the tab bar nor the icon bar shows after installation.

I really like using tabbed browsing of folders, but QTTabBar is a bit bloated and has some funny standard settings.. Not love at first sight.

The new version is still in alpha stage. It has some bugs and is somewhat unstable. Meanwhile I´m using WindowTabs. Its simple but stable. But I'll switch back to QTTabBar as soon as bug free betas or final versions are released.
