    Default Windows 8 Explorer gets new features and includes a Ribbon UI

    Second day in a row that Microsoft is talking about Windows 8. This time it has detailed the new features and improvements that will be introduced in Windows 8 Explorer.

    We knew that using a ribbon for Explorer would likely be met with skepticism by a set of power-users (like me), but there are clear benefits in ways that the ribbon:
    •Exposes hidden features that they already use but which require third party add-ons to use in the Explorer UI today.
    •Provides keyboard shortcuts for every command in the ribbon, something many people have been asking for.
    •Provides UI customization with the quick access toolbar, taking us back to a customization level that is basically equivalent to Windows XP.
