Groupy is a remarkable app that enables you to drag any required app, program or even a file into a single tab where all these are grouped at one place. This app aims to enable quick and easy multitasking, especially for the devices with small screens. One can also run numerous illustrations of a single app in this grouped tab which helps create a tab-based file explorer. Microsoft is planning to implement this experience of the grouped tab into future versions of Windows 10 in the form of “Sets” which will be directly a part of the features provided by this operating system. “Sets” hasn’t been made available for use, neither for the general public or insiders. However, you can get the same experience by getting Groupy which shall be made available for download by the end of this year. For the ones in for a beta version, the app shall be available earlier than the scheduled release. The beta version is restricted to users of Object Desktop only. Once Groupy is released next month, it shall be available on Windows 10 at a price of $9.99.
