Immersive Explorer: Metro-Style Alternative To Windows Explorer

Immersive Explorer: Metro-Style Alternative To Windows Explorer

Although the new Metro User Interface (introduced through Windows 8) didn't have a love-at-first-sight experience with the loyal users, its fan following is increasing day by day. People have started to realize that the new interface may be different than anything Microsoft has ever incorporated in earlier version of Windows yet these changes are for the better keeping in view user-friendliness, touch-friendly interface and an organized, vibrant layout of resources. Immersive explorer is a metro-style navigator serving as alternative to Windows Explorer. The aim is to focus more on the content rather than opening multiple windows and switching from one to the other. Images can be viewed and zoomed easily using this application with basic file management features appearing at the bottom. It is not in any way a replacement of Windows Shell and doesn't require any installation granting immediate access to the attractive interface without admin rights.

The application does not require any installation, and instead executes smoothly giving you the Metro UI feel. All options are organized into three categories, browse, view and edit specific to the folder type. Easy navigation buttons at the top left corner encourages you to trace your activity back while the handy My Computer button allows you to reach home with just a click. You can minimize or maximize the explorer as per your requirement while the time is displayed at the top right corner for ease of view.

Configuration required :

Windows 7 or Windows 8

A Core 2 Duo processor, or better (this app will be optimised to run on low end CPUs like Intel Atom or AMD Fusion in a future version)

At least 1 GB of ram

The .NET Framework 4 must be installed
