    I wonder if they fixed explorer throwing a fit every now and then that causes it to stop displaying thumbnails and instead displaying the default "white page" icon

      Nope. Still happens with specific shortcuts for me. Especially in start/taskbar.

        I really wish I could figure out what the frick causes it. I've noticed that when it's doing its fit the explorer takes a while to "load", ie the green loading bar gets stuck at the very end indefinitely. I also have an issue where a folder icon has a black background for some reason.

      The new folder button randomly up and disappeared from the context menu and the new folder button in explorer/file-picker no longer works, neither does the CTRL+SHIFT+N shortcut. I did not touch the registry and no amount of sfc /scannow or dism fixes it.
      Readjusting all my settings in a new installation is a pain so I am stuck with entering cmd in the path bar and using mkdir to create directories.

      It has tabs now. This alone makes it kino.

      Explorer is 1000% better than any of your bullshit Linux file managers.

      You aren't fooling anyone you moronic shills. Most file explorers on Linux are a million times better than the slop on Windows. Try searching something with a regex string in a file system, try searching multiple hard drives and network drives at once, try renaming multiple files at once, try renaming files using multiple search and replace patterns at once. Linux had tabs in most file explorers years ago. Windows explorer is literally made for toddlers who don't work with their PC.

          The thumbnail joke is dead and just shows that your knowledge about Linux is outdated for at least 15 years.

      there's something very wrong with wangblows explorer. The search function is too slow. Thumbnails break randomly. Entering a folder with a shit ton of files causes weird things to happen. Downloading a file or moving it doesn't place it at the top when sorting by modification time (descending). Memory leaks. The search function isn't just slow, it's also moronic and fails to find things you're looking for for no fricking reason. Even cd, ls, rm, mv, find, etc. is superior to it and I use WSL2 and always open a terminal when I want to do something in a folder despite WSL2 being inherently slow.

        I'm also talking about win10 here not win11. I dread to think how bad microsoftpeepee wanblows 11 is.
        And also the fact that this OS just gives up if you have an uptime of more than 5-7 days. The bugs and memory usage that occurs after that point are insane. Like, the file manager just stops working and you can't see any drive anymore. Meanwhile I have a laptop in my room running Ubuntu, which has an uptime of 400 days (htop shows the little (!)) and it's still fast and bug-free. No memory leaks either.

        All true except mv
        Windows' merge behavior for move and copy is superior to the replace behavior by miles.
        I don't want to manually copy files into a folder from another folder and then more for each subfolder. Nor do I want to be scared for my life that I will replace some important file unwittingly when copying my backups.

      Yes, if the only Linux file manager you know is nautilus. But dolphin, nemo and thunar. are on far with windows.

    It is actually not that bad conceptually. But the execution is beyond moronic.

    It's objectively better than any other file explorer equivalent though.

      Dolphin comes with KDE.

          Yeah nice try, explorer crashes as much as plasmashell.
          The difference is that I actually can use the file manager in scenarios of a hardcrash since it's not linked together unlike windows where the entire shell and the file manager is one executable.

    Just use OneCommander, it's vastly superior
    Native file explorer doesn't even keep your tabs/ history open when you close the file explorer for fricks sake

    sometimes when I create new folders they don't show up until I refresh the explorer window, I had the same thing on win 10 as well, why is that
