Files is an increasingly popular 3rd party open-source file manager for Windows which leverages the latest features of the Windows platform including Fluent Design, seamless updates, and APIs which enable the performance and lifecycle behaviour that users expect.

It features:

  • Tabs
  • Cloud integration
  • Shell extensions support (in the right click context menu)
  • Column view browsing
  • FTP support
  • Can be set as the default file manager

The app is popular with power users, and with the help of renowned Windows on ARM hacker Gustave Monce, the app has now been ported to ARM64, with no emulated x86 elements retained, meaning the app will be blazingly fast on ARM laptops.

The AMR version is expected to be included in the next release of the app.

This should mean much better performance, whether you are on a pokey Snapdragon 8cx laptop or a blazing fast Apple M1.

Files v2 is free and can be found in the Store here.
