Looks amazing and designed well. con: too slow, unfortunately. at least on my system. will be using it when I upgrade
Files is everything the official File Explorer from Windows should be. Don't waste more time and try it out! the design it's beatifull and fully integrated into the Fluent Design System
Full of visual bugs, right click panel is a pure chaotic. Theres a good concept somewehere behind the mess, but needs a few more years to develope.
Files looks promising but is unfortunately too slow. The right-click context menu is especially slow and jumpy.
I installed Files because I liked the looks and what I read of its functionality, but after a few months of using it, I decided I didn't like it and uninstalled it. The problem is, that it also decided to uninstall the WINDOWS EXPLORER and now I don't know what to do. I had to install another software to be able to access my files.
Really, it only introduces tabs and a modern interface, but UX and usability are disappointing. The original Explorer is more customizable then...
I don't see the advantage of using this program vs standard File Explorer 7/28/22 I revisited because someone seemed to imply an improved context menu over File Explorer. I don't see that. Though there is a mild visual accessibility appeal over File Explorer at the outset, File Explorer is more direct in its context. What's more, this programmer has taken up with a thin scroll bar that collapses even thinner for some-odd reason.. already annoying, and then increasingly annoying.
