Microsoft Will Redesign Windows 10 File Explorer This Year
Since Dona Sarkar became head of the Windows 10 Insider Program, Microsoft’s attention to one of the elements that have always been the protagonists of the majority of user and enthusiast feedback, File Explorer, has become constant and decidedly in the foreground. It could not have been otherwise, as the young engineer Sarkar, many years before he assumed the current office, actively participated in the development of the first version of the Windows file manager.
Windows 10 file explorer will finally be redesigned during this 2019, with previews that can be tested by Insider users who perform Build preview of the 20H1 development step and which will be included in the central compilations (May / June) of 19H2.
It will make its debut in File Explorer and, subsequently and gradually, on all areas of the Control Panel, the new stylistic language of Windows 10, Fluent Design, complete with transparencies and shadow effects (reinserted in Windows 10 19H1 ), together with elements redesigned and in line with the Modern part of the software.
We have already anticipated the integration of recent files and most used in the new Start menu without Live Tile (another return to a certain past required loudly). The new Windows 10 file manager will support new elements of apps and services integrated into Windows 10 connected to the Microsoft account associated with the host device, for quick direct access, also via the Sets feature, which will make its return in the Insider versions over the coming quarters.
Good news, therefore, coming for everyone (passionate and not) in Windows 10 with the two updates of the features of next autumn and the following spring, for a complete and homogeneous graphics experience and use in every area of the software.
