Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) just announced the Sets, a new feature that will make your workspace more efficient and the applications you work with easily.

Microsoft's task-based attack is to bundle all applications with Sets. It's one of those features that will tell you, "What took so long?" Sets places applications and project files in a single tabbed window, and you will be able to access them on devices and platforms.
Whenever you work on a project, you can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Photoshop, YouTube, browse the web and so much more. Although your browser may have your history, you will need to recover other applications one at a time. It's a time-consuming process, and the new Microsoft feature has been created to streamline it.
What does this mean for your small business? Sets will save you a lot of time when working on projects. Whether it is to write a report using only Word, or a complex project with multiple applications, you can now access it in one click, even if you started weeks ago.
In an email sent to Windows Insiders, Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Windows and Devices at Microsoft, describes the goal of Sets: "The concept behind this experiment is to make sure that everything relates to your task:, research documents, files and applications needed, is connected and available in one click. "
What are the sets doing?
The best way to explain it is that Windows turns its interface into a kind of browser. Just as you can open multiple tabs on your browser and keep the history, Sets does essentially the same thing. He will work with Timeline to organize the different applications into sets.
Although the end result may seem simple, Microsoft needs to revise its Windows Desktop Manager on Windows 10 so that applications can be switched using tabs.
When will you see the sets?
Over the next few weeks, some users of the Windows Insiders program will be the first to discover the Sets. It will deploy in the form of an A / B test limited to Universal Windows Platform applications, such as Mail and Calendar. Other applications will be available in early 2018, including Microsoft Office 365 and others.
Microsoft will announce availability based on test feedback.
