Sets application appears in preview display and pulled in a prior stage for the second time by Microsoft.

Microsoft officially excludes the Sets feature for tabbed applications from its latest Windows 10 Insider Program build, 11704. Dona Sarkar, the lead Windows Insider source, revealed the action in a blog post unveiling the new preview build.

"We continue to receive valuable feedback from you as we develop this feature helping to ensure we deliver the best possible experience once it's ready for release," Sarkar wrote this week.
Sarkar added, "Starting with this build, we're taking Sets offline to continue making it great. Based on your feedback, some of the things we're focusing on include improvements to the visual design and continuing to better integrate Office and Microsoft Edge into Sets to enhance workflow. If you have been testing Sets, you will no longer see it as of today's build, however, Sets will return in a future WIP flight. Thanks again for your feedback."

Microsoft demonstrated the feature to developers at its Microsoft Build conference in Seattle in early 2018. The tabbed apps had been available in test builds for some Windows Insiders previously.

Disclosed to The Verge, sources reported that Sets will not ship with the next big Windows 10 update, Redstone 5, later this year. At Build, Microsoft provided no release dates, simply saying instead that the feature will be available when it is ready
