  V4 Windows 10 Explorer Concept - Re-Imagined by dAKirby309

ALSO, A USERVOICE SUGGESTION HAS BEEN POSTED REGARDING IT, VOTE FOR IT IF YOU WANT! windows.uservoice.com/forums/2…

A journal for those who are interested, I am developing a NEW Windows Explorer concept. This new concept will be consistent with the OFFICIAL Windows 10 design language (as much as possible because the language is still kinda confusing and inconsistent here and there) and will feature a few new ideas that I have yet to see anywhere else (not saying this to brag, but to say that I'm not copying other people's ideas). The concept is the result of quite a bit of sketching, thinking of ideas, a bit of inspiration, and trying to figure out how to keep Explorer simple but also present a brand new overhauled design with fresh ideas.

The concept will take a few ideas from the V3 concept I designed a few months ago, but will feature a revamp. I.e. I will reuse some ideas but try and make things more streamlined, touch and mouse/keyboard friendly, and consistent with the new Windows 10 design.

I'm using Clover solely because of the tab feature that it seems to borrow from Chrome... I couldn't imagine being without it after years of usage, and I'm glad you threw it into this concept.

... Does Windows 10 have tabs in Windows Explorer? When I upgraded from Windows 8.1 it kept Clover installed.

Unfortunately Explorer currently does not have tabs :( I really wish they would add it in already! However (and it's just speculation at this point), I'm sure that Microsoft will create an overhauled File Explorer soon! Possibly by the "Redstone" update coming next year, or maybe before or maybe after that. Hopefully a new Explorer would include features such as tabs!

For now, 3rd party apps and concepts will quench our desire for tabs in Explorer.

Well even if you don't like them, they are the icon style that Microsoft is going with so I need to be consistent with the style on my concept. Personally, I like the style, but everyone has their own preference.

I like these from the concept more from those now in windows 10 if you didnt get me. I didnt like them very much when they were previewed (dont know if yours ones were the same as in that preview) but now I kinda regret this style. The curent one  win10 is using arent consistent at all.

Hope soemone make a packager with system icons in this style for windows 10.

Did you get the upgrade to 10? or did you resrve it at least?
