    Windows 11 File Explorer functionality


    I am very disappointed with the lack of functionality with File Explorer with the new Windows 11. I use File Explorer for the purpose of exploring and sorting of files and folders and this is now no where as functional as for Window10 or earlier versions. I hope you reconsider your removal of the essential features. For this reason alone I will not be upgrading my desktop - I upgraded my laptop to 'test' and so far, not so good.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
