It would be nice to have tabs in explorer ... :)

This reminds me of something I did last year, back in the ol' OSBA days. It was a mod that made the taskbar buttons look like tabs by changing about four bytes in Explorer. It's not the tabs you're thinking of though unfortunately :(

That looks really cool Pr0gram.

*Sighs* I miss OSBA and it's wealth of information but at least there is BetaArchive :).

Hmmm... maybe I should really start the Windows 2007 project - that is, a project for a custom Windows, version 5.0, based on Windows 98 SE, but with all the possible hotfixes integrated, as well, as Windows 2000 default color scheme and icons, and those tabs in the taskbar. :P

You need to learn reverse engineering and know Win32 APIs.

Reverse engineering is not necessary. You can just write a shell extension

Tabs in explorer is something that a lot of people seem to want so I wonder why microsoft never put them into vista. Maybe its something they may do in the future maybe Vista Sp1 or windows 7
