At Genbeta we love to talk about the design of application interfaces and operating systems, and if there is one that lends itself a lot to imagine it differently and play with changes that occur rarely or very slowly in practice, it is Windows.
There are many concepts of design of Windows 10 and its applications we've shared over the years, and a lot of designers out there have pretty cool ideas. This is the case with Reddit user Jakub, a young designer who has come up with a great Windows 10 Explorer concept that looks pretty cool.
There is an application for Windows 10 that looks very similar to this concept
Jakub posted his concept on the Windows 10 subreddit and it has been very well received by the community. The image shows nothing outlandish and outside the lines of the same Fluent design language that Microsoft promotes so much, but that it does not finish implementing in its own applications.
A cleaner side panel with acrylic transparencies, a structure similar to the current one, but with a little more control for the user, showing locations pinned to the "Home", disks and recent files. In addition to things that we do not have in Windows 10, but that many of us dream of, such as tabs in Explorer or colored labels.
Some of you may have immediately thought of a certain application upon seeing this concept: In Files, a Alternative browser for Windows 10 with modern design and tabbed browsing.
We have talked a lot about Files in Genbeta, from its inception to its current state that is improving more and more to establish itself as a true alternative for users.
Files design is quite similar to this concept, and if you want to enjoy something like that, you just have to download it for free from the Microsoft Store. Interestingly, the creator of this concept knows several of the developers of Files and they are his friends.
