Hi,

 

I use GitHub with artwork. Having Git in Windows Explorer would be very helpful. Since Microsoft owns Github, this seems like a natural feature.

 

Thank you!

Hi Brett,

Thanks for raising this to the community. It is a good potential add!

Feature requests with Windows differs slightly from other Microsoft products. The recommended ways are

1. Feedback hub
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4021566/windows-10-send-feedback-to-microsoft-with-feedback...

2. Windows Insiders
https://insider.windows.com/en-gb/how-to-feedback/

They previously had uservoice but this was disbanded in favour of direct feedback through Windows itself.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
