Office 15 Explorer Concept max by zainadeel Office 15 Explorer Concept max by zainadeel
This is basically windows explorer design concept totally based around the Office 15 technical preview screenshot leaks.

Here is the version with ribbon maximized.
Notice no box for addressbar or search.

I think its not needed.
Pressing the search button will make the addressbar a searchbar.
And clicking on folders will work the same way.

Also notice the new Local Disk icon with new windows logo.. hehe :D

This is fantastic! The icons are particularly nice. I wish Microsoft would move in this direction.

The only think I would change is to remove the shadow above the navigation bar and maybe reduce it below.

good observation. I planned to did the same. Dropped it when MS showed how the final ribbon is gonna look like :P

Do you know where I can find an exact one, except for the Ribbon UI?
Glass or white?

The explorer (for Windows 7). Where can I download a simple white or transparent version. I don't care whether or not it has the Ribbon UI in it. I just want an explorer with the *EXACT* windows control buttons. Thanks!

good idea to combine search box and address box!
are the icons yours? pretty cool, after the aero era, those logos may be the upgraded versions of pre-Aero ones i think :>
Reply
:iconzainadeel:
zainadeel Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
yes all the icons are mine :)
Did all the graphics myself.

And well the aero era is all about glass and shining stuff. Even the folders look like covered with glass.
I wanted to go away from that. Keep it very simple. Very solid colors. Bright. Fresh.

Aero needs to go away...
Aero is basically the glass UI.

I think you should put the search button in a more consistent place, like the edge of the window or the beginning of the addressbar, since everytime I change my location in the file system, the search button also changes location.

:iconzainadeel:
zainadeel Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yes it will. I gave this alot of thought. But then again the search button corresponds to the folder that is open. So this way it gives a design que that pressing the search button will search this folder! But i get your feedback :) i did think over it.

I like it. Has a retro (Win XP?) feel to it with the bright colours. Good stuff.

zainadeel Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Well it does. This is based on Office 15 leaked screenshots. Have you seen them? Take a look at them @ the Verge www.theverge.com
I based these totally on those. To show ppl how the explorer can look like if MS brings that UI to Explorer. I hope they get rid of Aero.

I think it would be nice if the search bar only appeared there if you activiated it--Ribbon UI is already fairly space-consuming.
I'm assuming you put this into Office rather than having the 'Open/Save As' popup window, right? Because I like the idea.

actually the addressbar design is totally my work (in the sense its my idea) To have a search button that changes the address into a text input box. This allows us to remove the search box. Allowing more space for address of the folder in view.

I myself like monochromatic icons. I went this direction because of feedback from my pals @ Neowin. They are into colorful icons :P (the majority)
