Microsoft resurrected Windows File Manager from '90s

Microsoft has released the source code for original File Manager from Windows 3.0. The ancient software is impressively usable right now.

The File Manager for Windows 3.0 was released about 28 years ago as an alternative to managing files under MS-DOS. It can copy, move, delete files and perform a search in directories. The source code is now shared on GitHub by Microsoft veteran Craig Wittenberg, who maintains it MIT license.

If you want to have some nostalgia, download File Manager from GitHub right here. It's so cool to see how such old software can still run under Windows 10.
