It's been ages since we have the same look and feel for the Windows Explorer. There are some updates but the look and feel remained the same for long. However, the Redmond giant is working on a new File Explorer which is based on UWP (Universal Windows Platform). This is hidden but it's been discovered by a Redditor. So, if you want to try out the new File Explorer on Windows 10 then follow the steps below.

  1. Open File Explorer.

  2. Paste this into the address bar
    shell:AppsFolder\c5e2524a-ea46-4f67-841f-6a9465d9d515_cw5n1h2txyewy!App

  3. Hit Enter. At this point, the new File Explorer should startup.

  4. (Optional): Right-click the program and "Pin to Taskbar" for quick access.
