Clover Brings Chrome’s Tabbed Interface To Windows Explorer

Windows: Do you want tabs in Windows Explorer to work the same way they do in Google Chrome? You can now mimic the look and functionality of Chrome’s tabs with an app called Clover.

Once Clover is installed, Windows Explorer will have tabs that work almost exactly like the ones in Chrome. Ctrl+T opens a new tab, Ctrl+W closes it, middle-click closes a tab, and there’s even a new tab box that you can click. If you right-click on a tab, you also get the same contextual menu options, including the option to re-open a closed tab, duplicate an existing tab, or pin a tab to the back of the list.

Clover is free and runs on Windows XP and higher (including the Windows 8 RTM). We tested the app in Windows 7 without any problems. The tabbed interface is snappy and fast, and it complements the stock explorer UI. The developer’s site is in Chinese, but he has an English page on his site (linked below). To download the app, hit this Google Translate link. for the front page and click “Download”.
