Windows 8 – Goodbye Windows Explorer, Hello File Explorer

Microsoft is changing the name of the Windows Explorer to File Explorer in Windows 8.

The change is fairly minor as the functionality remains the same regardless of its name.

It’s just another sign of Microsoft’s willingness to abandon all traditions and move toward a new platform.

    the first two screenshots doesn’t look convincing simply because it uses some sort of the old start menu, but overall the name change should take effect in the RTM since it hasn’t happened so far in the Release Preview.
