Windows 8 file manager in Windows 7

Is there any program or modification for W7 which changes the look of file management (copy, move, delete) like in W8? Can't find anything myself.

I don't personally know of a way to get that exact style on Windows 7 but you can try Teracopy.. But it won't be exactly what you're looking for IMO.

Try some of the things in this article, adding Teracopy is recommended and other nice Win 8 features.

Yeah unfortunately Im not aware of any hack or tweak to get that style on 7. I'll look around and surely someone else can chime in if I'm wrong.

Every time I have looked, Teracopy was the suggested alternative. No one has been able to port the dialog to 7. Apparently it is not an Explorer feature, but rather a shell32 feature. Unlikely to be easily accomplished. A Guy
