Microsoft Revives Windows File Manager 3.0
– a press release
“A bit of nostalgia, the Windows File Manager, complete with pixelated graphics and spanning tree structures, is now open source and available for Windows 10 devices.“
For Immediate Release – April 10, 2018
Muncie, Ind. – As we near the launch date of Window’s upcoming Spring Creators Update, the Microsoft team has stepped back nearly 28 years to breathe life into a a relic of the past: Windows File Manager 3.0.
A bit of nostalgia, the Windows File Manager, complete with pixelated graphics and spanning tree structures, is now open source and available for Windows 10 devices. An Easter egg of sorts, this latest release from Microsoft harkens back to the early days of data visualization. Interestingly enough, this project also sheds light on the not-always-so-promising experience that is Windows backwards compatibility — a legacy that now spans over 30 years.
We highly doubt that any modern users will revert to File Manager 3.0 on a full-time basis, but this retro application could prove to be a fun trip down memory lane for longtime Windows users or those with an affinity for the old world of technology.
