Microsoft improves File Explorer Layout on Windows 10
Microsoft launched Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21337 with many new features and improvements. This article mainly talks about the improvement of the File Explorer Layout.
This File Explorer layout update is not to add new features but to optimize the visual effects so that users can improve efficiency when using File Explorer.
The main improvement is to increase the spacing between the content of the main interface to make users look clearer. And for users who like information-dense layouts, Microsoft also leaves room for choice, “there is a setting in View Options called “Use compact mode,” which will restore the classic layout of File Explorer. The UX for toggling this setting is not final. The level of padding is designed for better consistency with modern (XAML) experiences. This should also make it easier to work with File Explorer when using a touch screen.”
This window style content is arranged more closely, and users of high score screens and small screens are recommended to use the new version, which is larger and easier to view, and easier to touch.
Microsoft emphasizes that the current version of File Explorer is not the final version. In the future, Microsoft may make more improvements and performance optimizations based on user feedback.
Including search performance optimization, reducing freezing, and solving the problem of File Explorer taking up too much memory, these will be improved later.
If you are interested, you can install Windows 10 Insider Preview on a virtual machine to experience it. In principle, we do not recommend that you install the development version on a physical machine.
