Tabs aren’t just limited to web browsers, and they’ve been appearing in more Windows apps in recent years. Now they might be coming to Notepad.
A now-deleted tweet from a Microsoft employee revealed an internal build of Notepad with tab support. Just like you can currently do in your browser, you’ll be able to open and edit multiple text files and keep them all organized within a single window. The screenshot shows that the window has a big “Confidential” warning warning people not to talk about the features or take screenshots, suggesting it’s not quite ready for prime time yet.
Tabs were also recently added to File Explorer, so Microsoft is just keeping track of another piece of software that many people often open multiple windows with. This will help keep things clear and better organized if you frequently reach for the Notepad shortcut to jot something down on your PC.
Unfortunately, you can’t use it right now, but it will likely roll out to experts in the coming months as 2023 approaches.
