Discontinued, yes - but still the best with the most options by far!

In 2018 it is still the best way to get tabs on Windows Explorer. Fully customizable, clean, integrates nicely with Windows 10.

I'm satisfied

Works really great on Windows 10, almost flawlessly. Easily merges with the new explorer theme and seems like an built-in Windows function (that it should be!). There are plenty of useful options available to customize.

Previously I used Clover but it's inoperable on Windows 10.

I can confirm that It still works well with Windows 10 version 1803. The configuration is quite extended but it is a required for a fine tuned file manager. Haven't faced any lag or such. Much recommended!

Tabs, yes, of course. But that's just a small part. You can change text color and background color of files and folders (useful so that you'll never delete something by mistake) open cmd, have groups and favorites in explorer, launch programs, close tabs to the right, to the left, all, create shortcuts for doing almost everything you can think of, capture windows, split the screen in two or three "views", change Explorer appearance, customize it to your heart's content, while, at the same time, it still being the Explorer you know and feel comfortable with.
I installed it quite a few years ago and have never felt the need to try anything else. I wouldn't know what to do without it now. First thing I install when reinstalling windows. Sure, to get the most of it you'll have to invest some time, it has so many options, but you probably don't need everything it's able to do. With just a handful of it's options, your experience with explorer will be so much better that, in a short time you won't even remember what Explorer looked like without QTTabBar.

I had no problems, however, I think the position of the tabs are hidden and I ended up forgetting that I installed this functionality. I prefer ExplorerMax which adds tabs like chrome and no bugs like Clover

Just downloaded a few hours ago, it seems very good by now. Integrates perfectly with Windows Explorer.

With some setting tweaking it becomes very responsive and quite useful in many situation, with it's built in previewer and all.
Default settings suck though. Works on latest Windows 10.

The developer sometimes goes MIA and then returns, but QTTabBar is still the best solution. Groupy by Stardock is a good albeit premium alternative but doesn't yet support simple things like opening a folder with middle click :(

Saves lots of time navigating explorer. Absolutely necessary when frequently drives needs to be changed. Increases productivity.

Extend current file explorer and preview files when hover

Still OK

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.
