    For several years, I have been looking for something that's specifically like File Explorer on steroids, and this is it! QTTabBar does have a learning curve, but it's so incredibly feature rich that it's worth the time and thoughtful effort.

    Won't tab all applications but the best for adding tabs to the file explorer which badly needs them! The quick look into subfolders is super useful and I can't live without now!

    Tabexplorer (and a TON of the other alternatives listed) add tabs to the windows file explorer. Groupy is a tabbed UI that basically "eats" other programs and stuffs them into itself as tabs.
    One is an enhancement to a file browser, the other is a Windowing Manager.
