Chrome styled tabbed file explorer for Windows

Windows 8 has gone through many changes, but the concept of file browser remained very much same.  No doubt, the new improved ribbon interface looks good but not everyone would satisfy with a cool looking explorer.  Usability and efficiency is also important.

Whenever we open a drive or a folder in Windows explorer, it opens in a new window and at some point in time it becomes difficult to manage all open windows and switch between them unless you keep closing previous windows.

Clover - Chrome style file explorerClover is a small application which works as an extension to Windows explorer.  It allows you to open multiple folders in tabs just like you open different sites in different tabs in Google Chrome.

Apart from this,  Clover also lets you add files and folders to bookmark toolbar for quick access just like your web browser or you can use scroll click on your mouse to open the folder in new tab. It supports keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+t,  ctrl+d and many more. You can even use different themes with it.  So basically it brings the experience of Chrome to your file explorer.

Clover is a freeware and you can use it on Windows XP,  Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems.  If you like the concept of tabbed browsing then this one is for you. You can download it from the link below. Just download the file and double click on it to get started 😉
