Get Windows 8 Ribbon Based Explorer Interface in Windows 7 Using STDU Explorer

by Jawwad in Software, Tips&Tricks, Windows | 0 comments


One of the most visually appealing feature in Windows 8 is that Microsoft has extended the support for ribbon based interface from its Office products and other built-in Windows applications such as Paint to Windows Explorer. In my experience, user experience with ribbon based interface is really a love or hate affair for most users. But if you like the ribbon interface in Office 2007, 2010 etc. then I am sure you will like this in Windows Explorer as well. Only problem is that we are helpless if we want to have access to it right now on Windows 7 based systems. But worry no more as STDU Explorer is here!
