Windows 8 is the next operating system from Microsoft. It is not released yet, but there are a million rumors about the next new Operating system from Microsoft. And one of the most rumored feature is that, the ribbon interface from MS Office 2007 and 2010 which was bought to MS Paint and other inbuilt windows apps in Windows 7 would be transferred to Windows Explorer too.
The Ribbon Interface was loved by a few and hated by many. It was difficult for many of us to change to the ribbon interface from the menu interface. But If you are one of those who loved the Ribbon interface, then this is how you can switch to the ribbon interface-Windows Explorer while you are in Windows 7 itself.
STDU Explorer provides the look and feel of the ribbon interface-windows explorer in Windows 7.
STDU Explorer provides its users a standard Windows Explorer interface with Ribbon based GUI as one might expect. In addition to the support for the usual file operations such as Copy, Paste, Cut that are accessible from Ribbon interface, it also allows other useful file operations such as Copy to, Move to, New Folder etc. – all accessible from the Ribbon interface.
In addition, application also supports previews in left sidebar for many file formats such as image files (support psd, bmp, png, gif, pcx, jpeg, wmf formats) and e-books in DjVu, PDF, FB2, JBIG2, XPS, DCX, WWF, PDB, CBR and CBZ formats. This application helps you quickly view and find books or image files. A user can also filter the contents/file listing of a folder based on specific file types (pdf files, image files etc.).
