As you may already know from our previous article, Windows 10 comes with a new Universal File Explorer app. It is a modern app which might replace the classic File Explorer in the future. Recently, it got updates with the Fluent design bits applied to the UI.
It is a touch-oriented app, with no Ribbon or toolbar or any shell extensions. It might be interesting for touch screen users. The operating system has no shortcut to launch it, so you need to create it yourself.
- Right click the Desktop and select New - Shortcut.
- In the shortcut target box, type or copy-paste the following command:
- Type some useful name for your new shortcut and set the appropriate icon.
Now you can launch it and see the Fluent design applied to the app.Here are some screenshots.
The following video demonstrates the refined user interface of the UWP File Explorer app:
It is not clear when the app will be activated by default for all Windows 10 users. Currently, the classic File Explorer is the only app suggested for file management tasks in the OS.
