This is Microsoft’s new modern File Explorer overhaul for Windows 11

As was revealed a handful of weeks ago, Microsoft is currently hard at work on a significant update to the File Explorer on Windows 11 that will update several core areas of the app with modern designs and new features that will better integrate the experience with OneDrive and Microsoft 365.

Microsoft is yet to announce this new File Explorer, but we already know that the updated app will feature a redesigned header with a modern file directory box, modern search box, and a new “home” button. The existing header buttons such as “new,” “copy,” and “paste,” will be moved into the file/folder view just below the header.

The home page itself is being updated with more integration with Microsoft 365. Along the top will be a feed of “recommended” files, which will be presented with larger thumbnails that will make it easier to see what files are being suggested to you.

Even the left-side navigation is being updated with more modern code, rounded highlight buttons, and more. The details pane is also getting a big update to bring it in line with the rest of File Explorer, including integration with Microsoft 365, and a more rich experience for seeing file details.
