    One change I've found, in this Build, is that Universal File Explorer opens to the folder I left it at upon close, not This PC!

    That should result in UWP version of File Explorer.
    This is very similar to the Modern OneDrive/This PC app in 8/8.1. A little different UI using icons instead of rectangles. Basically the same functionality.

    LOL! I looked up a pic in Bing and look who showed up.

    This UWP file explorer is present since the build 14936 of RS2 and since that time has not changed anything, It's funny that onMSFT and Neowin published articles about it 2 days ago as if it were something new, that trick to activate it has been known for 7 months:

    Works nicely although clearly it's not ready yet.

    Nice Count and Kari! How would I save that string in order to call up this version of File Explorer when I want to find a particular file?

    Yep! I had that too. But it was easy to go back up the ladder to the original.

    Open it as told earlier with WIN + R, right click UWP Explorer in Taskbar and pin it:

    Thanks, Count. Checked it out hoping this signaled coming big improvements for File Explorer, but it seems to be just a truncated version of the same pitifully basic file manager.
