Microsoft teases new File Explorer for Windows 11

Microsoft released Windows 11 this week, but one item that was not shown was File Explorer. In a new video the tech giant unveils the new user interface that looks largely the same since Windows 7.

The new design has a simplified menu and new icons for some buttons. The ribbon at the top of the app, introduced in Windows 8, has been replaced with a single row of actions that all have new icons. However, there is an icon at the end of the row that probably has more options.

On the left is a “New” button that probably provides quick access to creating a new folder or file. In addition, there are a number of icons that resemble common tasks, such as rename, copy, paste, delete, and share. Microsoft seems to be focusing on images rather than text with this new design.

The tech giant says the first preview build will be available to Windows Insiders early next week. Some of these changes may appear by then, though more are likely to follow before the official launch of Windows 11.
