I will never use it again. This idiotic shell will no longer have any power over me, over my day, over my health and my workflow. Ever.

Improved in recent years!

The built-in file manager has been improved in a number of ways with the release of Windows 8 and Windows 10. The keyboard shortcut for creating folders is especially useful (CTRL+SHIFT+N), cannot believe it took this long! File transfers have also been outperforming stand-alone utilities and the UI gives a nice bit of detailed information. The user interface overall is much more streamlined and doesn't show information you don't need, which makes it easy to focus on your current task.

I still need additional software for things like advanced renaming and checksummed file transfers, features I only occasionally use.

Also wish Clover would work properly in order to get tabs back, alternatives don't seem to be as polished.

Imagine not being able to scroll while dragging files. Imagine not being able to create a folder based on the files you've selected. Imagine not being able to see multiple directories side by side. Imagine not being able to set folder specific views. Imagine not being able to add tags and colors to your folders/files. Imagine a slow, inaccurate search field that hasn't changed in a decade. File explorer is behind both linux's and MacOSX (especially macs) file explorers. Basically hasn't changed in over 20 years and it's depressing.

This is peak Microsoft

It's mostly great, but when they replaced "Favorites" with "Quick Access" in the side navbar, they ruined it. Now all my carefully-organized shortcuts are gone, replaced with a much less functional disorganized list with unusable link titles.

I have 8 folders pinned, all of which are named "2019". What am I supposed to do with that? It doesn't even show you the full file path when you hover over them.
