Immersive Explorer is an open source alternative to the default file explorer included in Windows (known as Windows Explorer).
It is designed to provide an "immersive" experience to the user by focusing on the content rather than hiding it behind icons and large window chrome and borders. It allows the user to avoid opening different applications and switching between multiple windows when doing tasks as simple as viewing a picture, thanks to the built-in viewer.
Although it is not a Windows 8 "Metro application", Immersive Explorer is designed around the "Metro" user interface guidelines. It is optimized for tablets and computers with touch-screens, but it also offers a great experience for mouse/keyboard users (with features like scroll-to-zoom, keyboard navigation).
Immersive Explorer is based on Win32/.NET/WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation). It uses graphical hardware acceleration to display fluid animations and transitions, making it look more modern than the default Windows File Explorer. Note that it's not a complete replacement for the Windows Shell (it's just an alternative to the Windows Explorer) and it doesn't even need administrator rights to be installed.
As Immersive Explorer is not based on WinRT, it means that it can't run on Windows RT devices such as Surface RT (but it works great on Windows 8/8.1 tablets like Surface Pro).

|Julian: Here we are on 23 Jan 2015 and there is no update to the program code, which was set to expire on 15 Jan. This is not the first time this has happened. If you are going to insist on timebombing the code, then you need to keep your side of the bargain and supply new code in a timely fashion. If not, then people, me included, will stop using what is otherwise a great app. Of course, automatic updates would stop this crazy situation. There may well be very good reasons why you cannot update the code at the moment, but that's also why timebombs are such a bad idea. It cuts both ways and at the moment it's doing you no favours.|

|Hi! The program is interesting. And you can do so using the program normally on a daily basis? Why every time you open an explorer should I go on the Internet? This is extremely inconvenient and not serious !!!Thank U|
