Help Windows 8 Evolved Windows Explorer with New Functionality
Advertisement
#1
Windows 8 leaks have already revealed that Microsoft is cooking an overhaul of the good old Windows Explorer.

Although still not confirmed officially by the software giant, Windows vNext will feature a redesigned Windows Explorer, with the company slapping the Ribbon / Fluent UI on top of the component.

In addition, recent findings from Windows 8 Milestone 2 (M2) / pre-M3 Build 6.2.7955.0 reveal that Windows Explorer will also evolve with new functionality.

Users uncovered a new feature which allows them to treat items in the Windows Explorer address bar more like individual folders and less like pieces of a folder destination. (via Tzvi Friedman)

The Windows Explorer address bar has suffered a major revamping after Windows XP, providing a sum of visual elements instead of the plain text used to point to a specific folder.

It appears that Windows 8 users will be able to drag and drop files and folders to specific destination points that make up the full address of a folder.

Personally I welcome the growth of Windows Explorer in terms of new functionality and features.

But while this particular example of new Windows 8 functionality might not be all that impressive, there are more goodies that I’d love to see Microsoft introduce in the next version of Windows.
