The latest Windows 11 Preview released on the Windows Insider Program DEV channel improves File Explorer. It is the most used application of the operating system.
Since the start of work around Windows 11, the file explorer has been the target of many improvements and new features. The most striking fact is the support for tabs. It’s a “small” revolution because it’s the biggest update in recent years. At the same time, Microsoft continues to refine its experience, optimize its performance and add new features.
The latest version delivered through the Windows Insider program benefits from search improvements. Now she tries to be dynamic. Clearly when using the search module, it is possible to see the results as you type.
On the other hand, beware, this advance is being put online in stages, so not all users can try it out yet.
File Explorer search will now show results as you type. The full search results page will update live without the need to press enter. We’re starting to roll this out, so the experience isn’t available to all Insiders just yet.
Redmond is also experimenting with adding more cloud files to search results.
Regarding bug fixes the giant explains
As a one-time change to help users find their folders with the Navigation Pane updates, if the default folders pinned to File Explorer’s Navigation Pane have not been pinned, they will be pinned to again after the upgrade. We fixed a memory leak that occurred when closing File Explorer windows.
Finally, there is a known issue, A bug causes command bar items such as copy, paste, and emptying the trash to be activated. A fix is under consideration but we have no timeline.
