It’s surprisingly rare that I get to see an app so useful that it makes me think: “How could I have lived without this app for so long!”. Well, this is exactly what happened when I tried FileBrick. This Windows 8, Windows 10 file explorer is probably the best and most useful app I have found so far in the Windows Store. To make an analogy, it’s like SearchAll, although not for search engines, but for files.

The app is free to download from the Windows Store, and it can also be upgraded for $2.5. By upgrading, you can benefit from some extra features, as we will see in a few moments when we will delve in the app’s inner workings.

The first time you open the app it will give you information on how to set it up so that you can benefit from all its features. The process is very simple and only takes a few minutes, and after you are done, you will benefit from the best possible file explorer that you could ever want.

The app integrates seamlessly with your computer, allowing you to add as many shortcuts as you like to whatever folders you choose. Also, in addition to local storage, you have the option of linking your online storage accounts as well as Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Flickr and YouTube.

Note: In order to integrate with the last 4 mentioned, you will have to upgrade to the full version of the app.

After the setup is complete, the app will function as a normal file explorer, and for your online storage accounts it will show you how much space you have available. In the Facebook folder you will be able to see your photos, friends and likes. Also, you have the possibility to manage them by creating or deleting folders and moving pictures and videos around.

The app is capable of uploading photos and videos to your Facebook account, and to your cloud storage accounts as well, and when there are multiple files in one folder, you have the option to filter them by name and search for a specific file.

Last but not least, the app allows you to browse other computers connected to your network, a feature that facilitates sharing between computers on the same network, but it can also share via email when opening the “Share” option in the Charms bar.


One annoying thing about the app is the always present add on the bottom of the screen, but for those who want a more clean interface, know that the paid version is ad-free and it gives you the mission features as well. We hope to see other cloud storage features in the next versions of the app, such as and YouSendIt. Also, email integration could be something to look forward to in the future.

Nevertheless, FileBrick is one app that should not miss from any Windows 8, Windows 10 machine and thanks to its awesome features, great looks and seamless integration with so many services, we think it is one of the best apps that the Windows Store has to offer.

Update: Unfortunately, FileBrick has been removed from the Windows Store, and you can download it anymore. However, you can check out our list of the best alternative file managers for Windows 10 for some more options.
