This is the file manager app for the modern UI in Windows Blue

Windows Blue has brought many changes to the platform including new apps and customizations, and we now have a better look at the new file manager app for the modern UI.

After discovering the files, it didn’t take much time before the app was up and running by a few ambitious users and now we have our first look at the app. As you would expect, it offers many of the features needed for a file manager and it all appears to be finger friendly.

The app bar along the bottom is where most of the magic happens, and it allows you to complete the basic items such as creating folders and deleting items. While we will wait to judge the product once it hits retail, this will be a good foundation for building the file browser.

Now that Microsoft will be delivering a way to properly manager your hard drive from the modern UI, it has been speculated that on Windows RT, the desktop will eventually go away. While we do not have any further evidence to report at this time, this is a significant step needed to live only in the new Start screen environment.

Thanks for the tip, Windows4live and AngelWZR!
