Clover Adds Tabs to Your Windows Folder

It would be very helpful if we could open multiple tabs on a Windows Explorer folder especially in times where we need to work with multiple folders at the same time. Because at many times, it is very annoying to work with multiple windows opened at the same time. Now a new tool named Clover helps to create multiple windows on a Windows Explorer folder at the same time. Clover will open multiple tabs on the same window just like Google Chrome or Fire Fox web browsers. Clover brings this feature as an add-on for Windows rather than a replacement. Clover also allows users to add bookmark folders.

Tab Page Shortcuts: One can open a new page in the window with the key combo Ctrl+T and Ctrl+W to close the page and Ctrl+Tab to navigate between pages. It will increase the easiness in working as one can do all these operations with the keyboard and not using mouse. This in turn will increase the work efficiency as well.

The project manager said that in order to predict the subsequent
character that you type, the tool sends the typed character to enquire our prediction engine. The prediction engine then makes use of the database of common passwords and phrase which is very big enough to be send off to your computer. He also added that this new tool also sends and registers your mouse movement and the instance when the character was included or eliminated from your password so as to assess the outcome of Telepathwords on your behaviour.
