“Tabbed File Explorer: One of our most loved and highly utilized features, File Explorer, is getting better. Windows is always looking for ways to simplify your everyday tasks and make collaborating as effortless as possible. So, we’re releasing Tabs to File Explorer that let you organize your files and switch between your folders with ease.
The new Favorites section is the perfect place to pin your most used files. And thanks to the power of OneDrive we’re making it easier for you to see important information like which of your colleagues most recently edited or commented on your file. When sharing content, Windows can also provide a list of contacts you’re likely to share content with and some personalized suggestions based on your Microsoft 365 account.
