As per a recent internet source, it was assumed that Microsoft’s File Explorer would offer a reworked user-interface design in 2019. However, the theory found false and what came out was an entirely different case.
A new Microsoft Design intern best recognized for his extensive Windows-themed visual reimagining’s, Michael West, designed a File Explorer context menu mockup on an online community for user-made artwork. Additionally, the intern later elaborated on that concept with a full Explorer scheme, which he shared on his Twitter handle. Micheal West, in his another Twitter post shares a source article for his work credits.
I found a source article for another story where my stuff is being shared and I’m being credited as an “internal Microsoft designer”? This is amusing. pic.twitter.com/qX4oxs8WOK

People will soon get a full version of File Explorer sidebar together with a context menu, which is in accordance with the Fluid Design strategy. Since Microsoft Fluent Design System unveiled in 2017, it is now coming into the major play. Because it offers a bunch of tools to create pioneering designs, perhaps the new layout will be an unconventional File explorer. Amazingly, the intern joined the organization recently, yet he managed to draw attention with his work.
Microsoft has not made any official announcement yet
The multinational technology company, Microsoft has not addressed any hint about the plans for moving ahead to modify its File Explorer this year. In contrary, the redesigning action for File explore by Microsoft was made in the second quarter of 2018. Although the company started disclosing the development of its global file explorer, it managed to a year to redo the task.
The Microsoft internal’s mockup carries design components from current Fluent Design system parts for File Explorer development of Windows team. Assumingly, the Windows team is working on the project of File Explorer renewal this year for its final launch of WCOS and Window Lite but none has made out to reach the public’s information.
