Office 15 Explorer Concept min by zainadeel Office 15 Explorer Concept min by zainadeel
hello again :P

This is basically windows explorer design concept totally based around the Office 15 technical preview screenshot leaks.

Here is the version with ribbon minimized.
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

Very nice indeed - it should have been like this in the first place. The only criticism I have is with regards to the shadows that surround the navigation bar. They're a little to intense. Nonetheless, nicely done. :)

none of these are actual icons.. this all a concept so these are vector shaped unsorted or organized.

I really love this design mockup, nicely integrated with the Metro look-and-feel and Office 15, minimalist while being aesthetic and pleasant to the eyes. Beautiful idea! :)

Wow I really love the look of this, very clean and easy to use. The only thing I don't like is the menu bar shadow, right now it makes it look kind of dirty. What about something like this? [link]

Its just awesome m8...........This will solve my problem if something like this happens..........
I just love the metro UI......but prefer desktop workspace for now in wdp as in it now metro start screen is really just start screen we can't do anything in that for now except having shortcuts there..I mean just def. apps but that would change on 29th :).............
but whenever I look at desktop it looks diff part than the metro UI I mean something missing......so I think ur concept a little bit more evolved will be awesome............This will make whole user interface metro and user will then take desktop just as "power user mode" not as diff environment......
The bottom blue line and colour is the most sexiest thing in your concept..but the search button position is really very very bad....It will make user troublesome as it will change its position as directory differs...
I would love if that was replaced with omnibar(like the one in google chrome and ie9)
and I dont know what but icons were missing something to become attractive and that ribbon in your concept wastes some screen see space between ribbon and address bar that space could have been saved......

In short very neat and great concept....

And what about my search box suggestion....:)

i forgot to mention. That is a very nice suggestion.
The thing is that in chrome there is this omnibar. its a box.

in my concept there is no box. The addressbar is just text.. and the search button corresponds to the lastest folder.

I think you do not need any box to get that functionality...
just like u have removed box from address bar......:P

The most, MOST INTERESTING feature of this concept is we are able to see folder size directly.
Seriously, Microsoft should realize these! :D
