It may seem a little odd that after all these years Microsoft is finally doing something about Explorer and File Management. Explorer has been pretty arcane compared to tools like Directory Opus, and Total Commander which are highly configurable, and extensible alternatives to Windows Explorer. It seemed like Microsoft just didn’t care or weren’t paying any attention to the most used feature in Windows, or just letting third party software developers plugin so many extensions into explorer that it became almost un-useable.
It’s a refreshing breath of air to see Microsoft now paying attention to these areas, even at this late stage of the game. It shows that the Windows Team is going back to it’s roots and putting a nice polish on so many areas in Windows, and still introducing new features in the operating system! Steven Sinofsky where have you been all my life?
While I don’t image “Explorer 8” will feature all the sophistication and power of say Directory Opus but it’s a huge step in the right direction for Microsoft. Thank You!
