In the latest preview of Windows 11 available in the Dev Channel, @FireCubeStudios on Twitter (via Windows Central) has spotted part of the XAML and WinUI code and references for a redesigned Home page and left navigation page. The new page includes a new section with “Recommended” items similar to the items available in the Start menu and various other elements that should update the remaining legacy parts of the application to a modern design to make it more consistent with the design language of Windows 11. Furthermore, it appears that the team is also working on some extra features, including “Shared Status,” “Conversations,” “Insights,” and “Activities” pages which are said to be features that will integrate with the Microsoft 365 products. According to the report from Windows Central, in future updates, Microsoft plans to add modern design updates to make File Explorer more touch-friendly with a simplified interface in the sidebar and header and bigger hitboxes. It’s unclear when the new changes will arrive in the stable version of Windows 11, but since some of the code and references can already be found in the latest preview of the operating system, testers may likely see some of these changes soon.
