Originally, Windows 10X was supposed to be the operating system for dual-screen products such as Surface Neo, but standard single-screen laptops would arrive first. A new modern file explorer that has a strong link to OneDrive is included in the final update of Windows 10X.
In Windows 10, File Explorer is currently part of the Windows Shell. It helps you to search directories and files, but other areas of the operating system are still responsible for it. But the modern version of File Explorer in Windows 10X is an isolated program that can only access local storage and OneDrive files.
Providing tight OneDrive alignment is the concept. This interface makes sense, since Windows 10X’s idea is much like the Chrome OS of Google, putting networking features first. There are no advanced features like ‘This Machine’ in the latest version of File Explorer, but you can still access files within OneDrive when browsing local files.
Microsoft has eliminated the typical elements of the Classic Explorer, including the Network Settings and Assets menu, which you can see in the screenshot of the earlier iteration of the new File Manager above. Options linked to storage are also only available in the key configuration app. Support for programs such as File Explorer Extensions or OpenShell in Windows 10X was also removed by Microsoft.
The Windows 10X operating system will not be officially reviewed by Microsoft, which has led to many questions regarding the consistency of the operating system and potential concerns with first-party applications.
Microsoft has finalized the RTM candidate version of Windows 10X, which is based on the ‘Windows 10 Iron’ branch, according to authoritative sources. The final release of Windows 10 does not allow Win32 applications, although it is possible to use a new service named ‘Cloud PC’ to stream applications over the Internet, so they do not have to be natively enabled.
Until at least the end of 2021 or early 2022, native desktop device support for Windows 10X will not be available. Windows 10X will not come equipped with UWP apps, such as mail and calendar applications and Office desktop applications, in addition to the classic file explorer. Users would now be forced to use online apps from Office and Outlook, which are modified more regularly than the UWP edition.
