Editors' Review

Clover adds browser-like tabs to Windows Explorer smoothly, effectively, and seamlessly. It will make you wonder why no one has thought of this before! If you ever have more than one Explorer window open, you'll want to add this download to make multitasking easier.

The program installs quickly and doesn't require you to always have it on to get tabs. Clover is expandable through themes, but you have to download those separately. A built-in themes store would be a welcome addition to the app. The app does let you put your most-used folders in a bookmark bar, which makes navigation so much smoother. There are no changes to the right-click menu, so you'll have to manually open a tab and navigate to the folder each time you want a new folder. Surprisingly, the program isn't a RAM hog, even if you have multiple tabs open at once.

This program kind of sucks you in on principle alone. Thankfully, Clover lives up its promise and gives you a neat, easy way to browse your folders, just like you would the Web. If you're constantly multitasking and searching for the window you want, this is a download you need.

"Can't live without it"

August 12, 2015  |  By Peter_Stuart

 |  Version: Clover 3.0.406

Pros

Makes exploring and juggling many folders a breeze!

Cons

1 out of 4 computers I installed it on had an issue where it crashed sometimes, So i just removed it from my friends computer. The poor soul has to live without it. No idea why he's computer did not like it.

Summary

Once you get used to it and then do not have it, its a nightmare to live without. Its how the explorer should of always been, perfection!

"Clover works great, but conflicts with other software"

November 17, 2014

 |  Version: Clover 3.0.386

Pros

The multi-tab feature is why I have this product, and that works great. It helps that it saves the settings from one use to the next.

Cons

The program conflicts with other programs. I sometimes cannot paste from the clipboard from one program to another until I close Clover. Outlook also hangs or crashes repeatedly until I close Clover. It is not consistently problematic, just sometimes.

Summary

I will continue to use it despite is problems. It does what I need it to do.

"Managing files in exploer will become easiest!"

April 25, 2013  |  By Blackdoraemon360

 |  Version: Clover 2.0.216

Pros

No need to open new window after install this software, can drag files to another tab for copying. Also it includes chrome themes in new 3.0 version, and still free!.

I've now this since I read an article about this software from my local IT magazine "Karangkraf's Majalah PC" yesterday. Thanks to the magazine that I've readed, and also thanks to this software!. :D

Cons

In taskbar, it open itself as Clover but not in pinned Windows Explorer, but this problem can be solved. To any user who use this software, follow this instructions after installing this (Don't forget to unpin Windows Explorer shortcut from taskbar!):
1. Copy software shortcut "Clover" from Clover folder in start menu, paste it or create shortcut and rename it as "Windows Explorer".
2. Change the shortcut icon and click browse when in change icon window and find "C:\Windows" and then find and click "explorer.exe", then click the icon that similar to Windows Explorer" then OK on Change Icon window and click apply or OK when return to shortcut properties.
3. Right click the Clover shortcut that you've created and modified it to perfect "Windows Explorer" shortcut, and click "Pin to taskbar".

Done!. That's the solve of this con.

Summary

This software still the best, but with just a tiny problem that mess up the work. Still, this software is totally recomended to anyone who wants to do with Windows Explorer to manage or browse some files they need, clearly and sort'ably.

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"

February 26, 2013  |  By autonomatt

 |  Version: Clover 2.0.216

Pros

I am a long time user of QTTabBar, and have also used xplorer2 in the past. Clover beats them both. Why Microsoft hasn't implemented tabs by now is beyond me.

Cons

There are none

"A nearly perfect solution"

October 02, 2012  |  By KevinProv

 |  Version: Clover 1.0.99(101)

Pros

It allows you to open folders as tabs from the desktop, as well as from folders withing folders (using ctrl+click).
And the open folders are no longer crowding up the toolbar! That was an unexpected plus!!!

Cons

Main window doesn't respond to winsplit revolution commands. but i guess i can get used to that.

Summary

Installed it on my winxp desktop. Very simple to install and use. I don't know why this little gem isn't more well-known. Wish I had found it years ago. :)
I'm going to put this onto my laptops right away. I'm sick of open folders on top of one another on that smaller screen. It's handy on my desktop, but it will be a godsend in the laptop environment!
