Tabbed Explorer - try it in ReactOS?

Post by laurflorin »

Hey guys, check this out:

http://ejie.me/

it's a plug-in that adds tabbed functionality to
Windows Explorer and makes it like a browser.

It would be a very interesting and useful feature in ReactOS. :)

That extension is OK but - it does not respect themeing so you get a fixed-in-place pseudo Win XP top drag bar that does not theme with the rest of the o/s.

Q-Dir does the job better (tabs and multiple windows) and is not tied into the o/s, so if the o/s is accessing faulty or slow media the whole o/s doesn't grind to a complete halt. It looks/acts just like explorer too and it respects themeing. You can kill explorer.exe and still run with Q-dir...

Depends on your definition of "doing the job better"... For me Clover is better than Q-Dir for the same reasons you use - it integrates, while Q-Dir is additional app. Clover also has the (for me) advantage of being able to integrate Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs or Win Update windows.

That's also the reason I think Q-Dir is better, it isn't integrated.

Try it in explorer new (shell experiments branch would be best), if it doesn't work, submit a bug report.
