Hi folks
It's bonkers having to chose "More options" to delete / rename files etc -- whoever thought of that one should be stuck in a dark tunnel with huge rats for company. !!

I'm not a huge File explorer user so not really a show stopper but could be an irritant.

File explorer also still not showing long path / directory / file names

e.g

fe.png



Application Filezilla (on the Windows machine) for example shows files properly !!!!!

You don't need to do that. Take a look at the screenshot below. The icons across the top are cut, copy, rename, delete. I actually like this better because they are not buried in a long list of choices.

NOTE: This is on the first insider dev. build, not the leaked build.

Not 100% sure I know what you mean by this, but if I am guessing correctly try this....

1st image is a folder open in File Explorer:

2nd image show the entire path being displayed when I click the folder in the address bar:

Could this be what you mean about file and folder paths? I clicked the three little dots at the top and then "options" and then the View tab. Not very user-friendly, in my opinion.
