The addition of the tabs to the Window 10 apps will make things simpler while working on different apps simultaneously. Consider you are working on a project and you need to create a word document for it meanwhile you also have to research over the internet along with some PowerPoint task. The ‘Sets’ will allow you to put all your tasks or apps in a single window to carry out the whole process more easily. By having all the apps under the single window with multiple tabs it is easy to switch between them and also eliminates the annoying need of going to the taskbar everytime you want to open another app. In addition to this Microsoft will also allow the users to carry out their grouping tasks on mobile devices using the ‘Sets’. The company is also planning to enable the iPhone and Android users to use these 'Sets' and resume their work on the PCs.
