Windows 11 has a redesigned File Explorer (formerly known as Windows Explorer). With the new File Explorer for Windows 11, Microsoft has ditched the ribbon menu for a simple toolbar that looks modern and cleaner.
In addition to the new toolbar, File Explorer now uses acrylic and also offers a revamped context menu. All in all, File Explorer in Windows 11 certainly looks new.
While most users want to upgrade to Windows 11, not all users are eligible for the free upgrade. Since not all Windows 10 PCs are compatible with Windows 11 due to special hardware requirements, many users wonder whether it is possible to get the excellent features of Windows 11 in Windows 10 without the update.
PC users with Windows 10 are wondering if it is possible to get the new Windows 11 File Explorer in Windows 10.
