After the official release of Windows 10 last year in July, there have been a lot of improvements and updates to the latest software. To ensure the best user experience, Microsoft has been taking feedback from the users on how to boost performance of the OS.
The latest enhancement is to find an easier option to access Windows 10’s application in File Explorer, although reports claim that a newer version of File Explorer is coming in next few months.
Some might argue that the Windows 8’s All apps screen was quick to access, it is not the same with Windows 10 full-screen menu. However, using a simple command will take you to the right to File Explorer where you can see an entire listing of all installed programs. What do you have to do for it?
First, open the run command windows by pressing Windows key + R. Second, type “shell:AppsFolder” in the text entry box. Then, click enter.
The above two functions will lead you to the File Explorer to help you view all applications, including system utilities and Windows Store. You will spot a maximize button on the upper right corner, clicking on which, will help you view as many applications as possible, according to PC World.
A few days back, it was revealed that the Redmond tech giant will soon release a new File Explorer for Windows 10. Microsoft’s Peter Skillman first broke the news on Twitter, saying, “Yes we are working on a total update of file explorer! Can’t articulate schedule yet.” While not much is revealed about the updated file explorer, but there are possibilities that there will be an improved version of the explorer, notes Winbeta.
Although, the present File Explorer allows you to view all applications on full-screen menu, the application is a bit cumbersome showing all options in the Start menu. This includes website links, PDF documents, actual programs and program-specific uninstall utilities.
It should be noted that this is something similar to all-apps screen in Windows 8. It is, therefore, worth noting what Microsoft has in store for an updated version of File Explorer.
