Microsoft puts the spotlight on the File Explorer's Share button in Windows 10

The Windows 10 Technical Preview that launched a couple of weeks ago has a number of features that are not immediately apparent. One of them is the new Share button in the operating system's File Explorer in an expansion of the Share feature beyond just Modern apps in Windows 8. Today, Microsoft put a spotlight on that feature in a blog post.

Microsoft says:

"Installed apps that enable sharing will work with this button; it will open the share experience just like in Windows 8.1 when the Share charm is used. For example – you can select a few photos directly in File Explorer, press the share button, and share directly to Facebook or Twitter if you have these apps installed."


While the feature is still being developed and perfected, this will certainly be a big new addition to Windows 10 when the final version is released sometime in 2015. Neowin has some more info on how this new Share button will work. What do you think of Microsoft expanding the Share charm beyond Modern apps?
