Windows 8 build 843x screenshots leak, reveal Windows Explorer name change

New leaked screenshots of build 843x have leaked onto the internet today, revealing a brand new Windows Explorer name change. The screenshots also show off the new store icon, but we’ve known about that change for quite some time.

The new screenshots reveal new changes to the Windows Explorer, these aren’t UI specific changes, more a name change. The Windows Explorer in Windows 8 is now called the File Explorer instead. Why are Microsoft doing this? It’s currently unclear at this time as Microsoft have not given an official explanation. We don’t expect them to either.
