OldNewExplorer Turns Windows 8’s Windows Explorer into Windows 7’s

I never cease to be amazed by the never ending parade of products that are designed to turn Windows 8 back into
Windows 7 …

One of the few changes that Microsoft made to the desktop part of the Windows 8 operating system was a redesigned Windows Explorer interface.

Microsoft renamed the default file browser to File Explorer, but that was not the only change that shipped with Windows 8. The new interface uses a ribbon design by default in the header similar to the design that Microsoft’s Office suite uses.
