UWP Files is a third-party file management application for Windows 10 that you can use as an alternative to the built-in File Explorer. The application aims to “modernize” the File Explorer experience with a fluid design, as well as offering additional features such as instance tabs.
The application, currently previewed, offers a tabbed layout with multiple layout modes (with more on the way). The developer claims “unparalleled file access performance” and in my initial impressions, the claim is not out of place.
UWP Files is Open Source
Available for download at this link, this application seeks to give a twist to what the classic File Explorer
An UWP Files application that is also open source, which can be found at this link on Github for third parties to collaborate with comments and suggestions in the development of the utility.
For now, this alternative browser version is still under development and offers a tab-based design to facilitate searching in files and folders. In addition, supported by Fluent Design, it allows you to configure it with different layouts that will be expanded in the future depending on the development of the application.
The application is completely open source, and the code is available on GitHub. Luke Blevins, the developer behind the application, has called on the developer community to support the application with elements of feedback or to make requests to GitHub to make it even better.
For now, Blevins plans to implement key features such as improved OneDrive support, search options, and WSL support in the near future. The goal is to have UWP files out of preview in a few months.
