A list of five handy apps for the Microsoft Surface

Metro Commander 1

3. Metro Commander

One of the features that is seriously lacking in Microsoft Surface is a metro version of Windows Explorer (or File Explorer as Microsoft has begun calling it). Sure, you can access File Explorer through Desktop mode, but using Desktop Mode on a tablet isn’t exactly an elegant solution. There is a metro interface for navigating the file system, but this interface isn’t exactly great for functions like moving or copying files. This is where Metro Commander comes into play.
