Are you tired of shuffling between windows when browsing or copying files between different folders?  Here’s how you can make Explorer more usable with integrated tab navigation.

Explorer in Windows 7 and Vista is much more usable than previous versions, especially with features such as the integrated search box and the breadcrumbs in the address bar.  Unfortunately, though, it can still be difficult to shuffle around between multiple windows and folders.

Most of us are used to managing pages with tabs in our browsers, and this can be a great way to manage your files as well.  Explorer doesn’t offer this by default, but you can easily add tabs to Explorer with the latest version of QTTabBar.
