Win10 Tips: Register UWP File Explorer



The UWP file explorer has been added to the Win10RS2 preview version but the current version is still in its early form and has limited functions. Microsoft didn't intend to make this application publicly available now but for the majority of fans it is the most fun to find out this suspicious element lurking in the system. This time we will introduce how to register the application in the system. After success you can see it in the program list of the start menu.

The specific method is as follows:

1. Locate the following position in the classic file explorer (as shown below):


2. In the upper left corner of the file select Open Windows PowerShell→Open Windows PowerShell as an administrator as shown below

3. Run the following commands in sequence:

takeown /F .AppxManifest.xml

icacls .AppxManifest.xml /reset

< p>

4. Don’t close PowerShell use Notepad to open the AppxManifest.xml file in the first position as shown below

▲Of course if If you have notepad++ and other coding tools you don’t need to use Notepad but as far as this article is concerned whichever is the same

5. Find AppListEntry=none and delete it save the file and exit Notepad

6. Go to Settings→Update and Security→For developers select developer mode. If you have enabled this mode first switch to other modes and then switch to developer mode again. As shown in the figure below

▲Although there may be a restart prompt here as far as the content of this article is concerned not restarting will not affect the subsequent steps

7. Run the following command in PowerShell:

Add-AppxPackage -Register .AppxManifest.xml -DisableDevelopmentMode

After successfully running the above command the registration is completed and you can find the file explorer item in the start menu as shown above.
