Microsoft plans to bring a redesigned file explorer to windows 10x

Considering the differences in practical applications, Microsoft not only provides windows 10x with traditional file resource manager, but also provides another new version of resource manager with a new interactive design concept.Although it may confuse some users, it at least gives special optimization for touch operation. In addition, technically speaking, windows 10x will be able to run two different types of applications, namely, uwp native applications and Win32 programs in containers (traditional windows software).

The first is a UWP version for touch optimization, followed by a classic version of the file explorer for traditional Win32 applications.



It is optimized for touch input from the very beginning, and looks very modern. Those who have been paying close attention to the progress of Microsoft's work recently will not be unfamiliar with this (the early insider preview bundled with windows 10).


The interface of the new version of file explorer is very simple, and there is nothing new except for the basic file operation options.


The advantage of this is that it can be more adaptable to the theme of windows 10x. If bright / dark mode is enabled, file explorer will also synchronously apply the relevant UI color.


From the perspective of large icons and fonts, the purpose of the new application is very clear, that is, to provide a better use experience on devices that support touch input, so as to simplify the workload of users in processing files.


Right click (or long press) to open a concise context menu for specific files, including basic options such as delete, cut, copy, share, rename and properties, or you can easily drag and drop to move files.


Given that both the Windows 10X operating system itself and the new version of the file explorer are still being developed, the current experience remains deficient (for example, feeling a little slow), but more improvements may be introduced later.


Previously, Microsoft had hoped to introduce sets (multiple tabs) design concept for various native applications, but unfortunately it had been abandoned.

Since then, file explorer has received only minor tweaks, and the upcoming windows 10 version 2004 (expected to arrive in April May 2020) will not bring any substantial updates.
