When Windows 8 developer preview was released, one of the major changes was to the Windows Explorer, the new Explorer featured a ribbon UI with all the functions integrated into tabs. If you are running Windows 7, you can now get the ribbon UI on explorer with BExplorer or Better Explorer. We have already covered this tool, but now the developer has completely redesigned the interface to get the ribbon UI.
As you can see from the image above, it does bring in the Windows 8 style explorer with all the ribbon UI as well as a tabbed interface. the additional feature of this app is that tabbed explorer is featured.
Although the app works well, there are some issues and minor bugs and also the file menu is incomplete. But as of now the app is in alpha stage and is a promising app for Windows 7 users. You can download the latest version from here.
