A fresh update is now available for Stardock's Groupy utility, and it brings one big feature to the table: dark mode. The new dark mode, which can be seen in the screenshot above, blacks out the tab interface, allowing it to blend in more when you're using Windows 10's dark mode.

Working much like Microsoft's abandoned Sets feature, Groupy allows you to group apps together in one window, using tabs to flip between them. You can drag and drop separate apps into the same window, preview tabs with mouseovers, and even save groups of apps together for future usage.

Groupy is available a a standalone app for $10 (on sale now for $5), or as part of Stardock's larger Object Desktop utility suite for $50 (currently on sale for $30).
