    It's not official, right? Never read/heard about it on any Windows news site. ;)

    Hmm, it does look exactly as the Windows 10 Mobile file explorer. :g:

    Looks just as useless as I would expect a UWP app to be.

    I also found an internal testing app called Coffee, I can upload that too if you'd like.

    I'll PM the store link to anyone who asks, just don't post it anywhere, and don't review the app, it'll seem suspicious.

    Why does my computer not show This PC? Love the black though much better on the eye then the white File explorer.

    It's a true universal app, infact, the same code runs on mobile, and xbox as well. So if it said "This PC" on a phone or Xbox One, that wouldn't be right.

    I also found a massive stockpile of other testing apps, the majority of them appear to have no purpose, including a 27 GB application (I haven't downloaded it, but it's on the Windows Store along with the rest of them)

    I highly suspect they will, it would be a welcome change, however, before it reaches the public, they'll probably add a way to configure File Explorer to allow you to access the root of your hard disk, open exe files, etc.

    There is already a UWP version of OneDrive available on the Windows Store, it's been out for a while now.
