New look for file and folder dialogs on Windows

The dialog boxes created by Select folder and the dialog box opened by 4D have now been updated with the latest version of Windows File Explorer. The overall user experience is improved, as you can now easily select your file or folder from different sources such as your computer, network or even your OneDrive account!

Besides the UX improvement, the user interface is fresh and clean: the task pane has been replaced by a tool bar at the top with a search area, and a navigation pane on the left containing commonly accessed folders and preconfigured Search Folders.


There is more than what the eye can see, and design is not the only improvement we’ve brought with this update. It also includes significant changes such as improved filtering, sorting, grouping, and stacking … as you’re already familiar with in your file explorer. Happy exploring!
