Storage Explorer strives to make it easy for developers to quickly access and manage many storage services under different accounts. After analyzing customer research and telemetry, version 1.28.0 will include new updates/features that will benefit our developers’ journey.


To highlight a few features, the Storage Explorer 1.28.0 now allows for Text preview enhancements and downloading multiple blobs at once when filtering based on a tag:

  • Multi Blob Download When Filtering by Tags
