Immersive Explorer

A modern file explorer for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7


Immersive Explorer is an alternative to the default file explorer included in Windows (known as Windows Explorer). It is designed to provide an "immersive" experience to the user by focusing on the content rather than hiding it behind icons and large window chrome and borders. It allows the user to avoid opening different applications and switching between multiple windows when doing tasks as simple as viewing a picture, thanks to the built-in viewer.

Immersive Explorer is based on Win32/.NET/WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation). It uses graphical hardware acceleration to display fluid animations and transitions, making it look more modern than the default Windows File Explorer. Note that it's not a complete replacement for the Windows Shell (it's just an alternative to the Windows Explorer) and it doesn't even need administrator rights to be installed.

Configuration required :

- Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10
- If you're using a tablet : At least an Intel Atom Bay Trail CPU (most tablets released with Windows 8.1).
- If you're using a desktop/laptop : At least a Dual Core CPU
- At least 1 GB of RAM
- .NET Framework 4.5

Current version : 1.6.0 (released on 2018/05/23)
