A file explorer and manager for Windows 7/8

A review of Immersive Explorer by Tina de Pierre

Immersive Explorer is a different kind of Windows File Manager and not similar to the typical layout we've grown accustomed to since the days of Windows 3.1. Instead, Immersive Explorer takes a nod from the current Windows Modern UI (or Metro UI) layout and uses tiles.

The program is completely free and hence its name, immerses users into the Windows 8 Start Screen layout. Although this program is not a Windows app, it looks like it could be one. Since the program is portable, there is no need to install it at all. The registry will not be modified.

Immersive Explorer can be run in full-screen mode or resized as a window on your desktop. It integrates many of the Windows Explorer features and provides a full suite of file management utilities included with Windows. In addition, it can also view image slideshows.

The performance of Immersive Explorer is impressive and we didn't experience any hanging or crashing. Indeed, it does utilize the Windows Explorer API which explains its small size.

In the end, Immersive Explorer is not necessarily a replacement for Windows Explorer but does provide an alternative way to manage your files.
