    I enabled long file paths using the policy editor but then I could NOT BELIEVE that File Explorer - Microsoft's File Explorer - in 2016 does NOT support long file paths !
    Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that support for long path names is still a work in progress. It is not even enabled by default.

    How can Microsoft do that ?!
    We stopped asking such questions after the infamous recent blunder with Regedit, which crashed during Search operations because of exceedingly long registry key names.

    Can anyone tell me if the manifest hack above works for File Explorer ?
    It's not great... Explorer uses hard-coded buffers in various places that don't allow paths greater than 256 characters and there are a bunch of shell extensions (including some in Windows) that are affected.

    You would be better off finding an alternative file browser.

    rumor has it that the next release (Redstone 2) is going to have a new Universal File Manger application
    Rumor you say?

    It's rumor that it will be in RS2, not that they're working on one (one never knows when or if it will actually make it into the build, or if it will replace the desktop File Explorer)

    If only there were some developers at Microsoft.
