As you may remember, in addition to the File Explorer app Windows 10 includes a new UWP File Explorer counterpart. In a post on the Windows Experience blog, Microsoft included a new screenshot of the app, that features a bit updated design of the app.
The new File Explorer app bundled with Windows 10 starting with the "Redstone 2" update. It is hidden and has no shortcut yet. It is a modern File Explorer, a Universal app which could replace the classic File Explorer in the near future.
Windows 10 ships with mostly the same version of Explorer as Windows 8 except for a few changes like Quick Access replacing Favorites. However, Microsoft is making a new "File Explorer" app, which will be a Universal app like Photos, Cortana or Settings.
As of this writing, it is a touch oriented app that allows performing all the basic file tasks which are currently available in File Explorer. These include operations like move, delete, share, select and copy items, set their properties. It also includes the ability to switch to various views for files and folders the way the classic File Explorer app allows in Windows 10.
The new screenshot reveals a tab strip that reminds of the Ribbon UI. It includes File, Home, Share, and View. Interestingly, that the app window has no title now. Other notable change is the appearance of the sidebar, that now uses Microsoft's latest icons.
It is still not known when Microsoft will officially introduce this app and for which devices. To check out the current version of the app, run it as follows:
