Files App is a file document manager that allows Windows PC users to experience dramatically enhanced functionality found in its built-in file manager, a wide wide array of advanced features that can supercharge daily workflows and allow anyone to increase their productivity.

What is Files?

Files is a modern file manager that makes it easy to organize files and folders. It has been built and is maintained by the open-source community, with a design that includes helpful tags, deep integrations, and robust multitasking experiences. Over the past five years, the developers have worked to create a fully featured file manager, with a mission to make the best file manager for Windows. Originally, the manager was built with UWP, but now takes advantage of the latest features and UI libraries from Microsoft through WinAppSdk.

Offering enhanced multitasking, a better listing of tags and metadata, deep system integration, and a streamlined user interface, this open-source application takes the basic file management visual theme found in the basic Windows file manager and transform it into a more powerful utility.

The core feature of Files App is an enhancement of multitasking, which is achieved with the adoption of tabs, dual pane layout, and enhanced file and folder preview that all enable users of all proficiency levels to speed up the way they are managing their local and even remote files.

The app has built-in support for FTP connections as well as integrations with many popular cloud hosting services, enabling remote storage destinations of Google Drive, One Drive, and iCloud to become integrated into a single file management environment. The app also has streamlined support for tabs, which can not only dramatically speed up file management but can also help remove a large amount of clutter from desktop surfaces.

It also has integrated support for keyboard shortcuts, enhanced file preview (with not only metadata surfacing, but also the ability to actively preview photos and even playback video files!), full integration of tags that can be used to mark files and folders, and much more. All in all, Files App represents a dramatic expansion of capabilities found in File Explorer -the default file management app found in all modern versions of Windows OS (Windows 10 and 11). In addition to addons that are focused on enhancing daily file management, Files Desktop App also has some notable visual changes. The app supports not only Dark mode which can reduce eyestrain during the night, but also Themes that can be customized by the users.
