When you open your file explorer, you will land on the start page and see a + button next to the newly opened tab. You can click on it to open a new tab and navigate to a new location in your system. You can also right-click on the tab you’re on, and it’ll show you three options: close the current tab, close all tabs except the one you’re on, or close all tabs on the right.

If you like keyboard shortcuts, you can just press CTRL+T to get a new tab or use the shortcut CTRL+W to close the currently open tab. You can rearrange them, but dragging and dropping them to open a new window is not possible.

the Task Manager is also accessible as a shortcut from the taskbar by only clicking on it with the right mouse button. Finally, instead of showing all programs in the taskbar, excess applications will be placed in an overflow space that you can access by clicking on a three-dot icon.
