Windows 9 to Replace “This PC” with New “Home” Root Locati
Leaked Windows 9 screenshots that have recently reached the web have revealed quite a lot of changes that Microsoft plans to introduce in the next version of its operating system, among which new icons for some of the built-in apps, including Windows Explorer.
It appears, however, that the new icon won’t be the only one that Windows’ integrated file manager will get, as new information coming from sources close to the matter indicates that Microsoft is also renaming the root location in File Explorer.
“This PC” will be renamed to “Home” in Windows 9, and there are some voices that claim that Microsoft could go even further and rename File Explorer entirely, although it’s not yet clear whether “Home” could also serve as the program name or not.
A number of leaked screenshots indeed show that “Home” is now the root location, and the change is also expected to show up in the preview build which could be released to users in early October.
