Microsoft is now officially testing Notepad with Tabs for Windows 11

American tech conglomerate Microsoft has officially started testing tabs in Notepad for Windows 11 after an employee at the company accidentally leaked the information earlier.

According to The Verge, an American technology news website, tabs are now visible in an update to Notepad for Windows Insiders on the Dev Channel. Notepad’s tab support allows users to open multiple files in a single window, similar to how Microsoft implemented tabs in File Explorer in Windows 11.

“There are also new keyboard shortcuts to support tab management, as well as some improvements in unsaved file management, like Microsoft’s, reports The Verge.

After Microsoft added tabs to File Explorer last year, Notepad is the first built-in app to get a tabbed interface. The company first tested tabs across all Windows 10 apps almost five years ago in a feature called Sets.

This would have added tab support to Notepad, File Explorer, and many other apps, but Microsoft canceled the project and never released it to Windows 10 users.

In addition to Notepad tab support, Microsoft is updating the graphics settings page in Windows 11. According to The Verge, this includes GPU presets, Auto HDR, and window game optimizations. (ANI)
