Recently, the third-party file manager Files for Win11 has officially launched version 2.1. In the new version, Files fixes the bugs that existed before and added native support for ARM 64.

With the addition of this support, users can more easily use the Files file manager on Windows computers using the ARM architecture, such as the Surface Pro X, without the need for additional setting adjustments.

In addition, after this update, the File's file manager experimentally added the default file manager option. By enabling this option, Files will be automatically opened when Win11 calls the file manager, instead of the file manager that comes with Win11.

According to the developer's description, this function is still in the testing stage, but the reliability has been improved based on user feedback to ensure that the function is stable enough for normal use.

At the same time, in version 2.1, the Files file manager has optimized and adjusted part of the interface UI, and fixed several previous bugs that may cause software crashes.

Files is a third-party file manager designed for Win11. It has a set of tabbed multitasking system, allows users to use the file manager like a browser, and integrates cloud services such as OneDrive, Google Drive and iCloud, users can operate seamlessly.
