Users of Windows 10 who enjoyed sets – and were disappointed when Microsoft abandoned the idea – may hope that this fundamental change in user interface is still pending, at least for the latest information from the rumor mill's operating system.
Sets was (or is) the great idea of Microsoft to adopt the concept of the tabs of web browsers and apply them to the broader operating system so that users can group apps sets in one window (all of which could relate to a particular one) task, and comfortably lit together if necessary).
As mentioned earlier, Microsoft seemed to drop this idea altogether earlier this year (after being previously delayed), but now the prolific Leaker WalkingCat on Twitter has hinted that this may not be the case and that sets are back on the horizon could – though without much in the way of qualification or detail.
Oh? "Sets" is back in 19481? 🧐September 20, 2019
He mentions build 19481, a preview version of Windows 10, which is likely to be internally tested by Microsoft. Keep in mind that the current preview for the next major update to be released in the first half of 2020 (20H1) is Build 18985.
Italian tech website Aggiornamenti Lumia got involved in this Twitter thread and found that Build 19480 (and newer) are on the way to becoming Windows testers and that this is probably the beginning of (Skip Ahead) testing on Windows 10 21H1 – the big update that is due to land in the first half of 2021.
What about the Windows 10 20H2 update? The theory is that, as with the 19H2 update, which should soon be with us, it's about tweaking and smoothing things and optimizing performance rather than introducing any important new features. Although that is pure speculation, of course.
Insists on success?
The most important thing is that Sets seems to be making a comeback. Other commentators in this Twitter thread note that there is further evidence that Microsoft is re-testing the feature, and that the company may have fixed issues that have occurred, such as how sets make the cut for Windows 10.
This is great news for us, as we believe that this is one of the most intriguing new features for Windows 10, and potentially represents a huge user interface enhancement for the user interface.
