What are the guiding design principles behind the two different methods of navigating the folder?


I'am Windows user and must admit that MacOS Finder is better.

  1. It's overloaded by default (too noisy). Too many unnecessary elements i.e. i don't need 3D Objects, OneDrive and unable to remove it without hacks.
  2. View modes: Finder provides convenient way to switch view modes. Explorer has 8 modes burried inside menus.
  3. Explorer has too narrow columns by default (legacy from age with 1024x768 screens). I'm sure that it's possible to auto-adjust column width by OS.
