    You can create new folders and move items that will reflect in the Win32 environment.

    (That icon pack looks great with a dark UI!)

    I can't seem to enable UWP Explorer any more. I'm currently on build 14393.969.

    Hey Nick,

    You might see if re-registering your apps may allow it to work afterwards.

    Might be an issue in that build then, it's working for me in build 15063.11.

    I just tested in a W10 buld 14393.970 VM, and the shortcut doesn't work in it. It's definitely an issue in the build.

    I can confirm that it works in build 15063. I hope they continue to work on this.
