Editors' Review

+

More feature-packed than Windows Explorer, 2xExplorer Z1 is nonetheless so lightweight it doesn't require installation. Like Total Commander and FAR, 2xExplorer Z1 has two panels for browsing folders, and you can toggle a third that contains a folder tree. The busy interface conceals several handy options for selecting files, such as filters and Sticky Selection.

You'll also find bonus tools that let you split files, shred documents to prevent their recovery, and create hard links on NTFS drives. Power users ought to love this replacement for the Windows File Manager. It's not long on looks, but it's fast, powerful, and totally free.

"Windows 7 64 bit review"

June 19, 2011  |  By int_revisor

 |  Version: 2xExplorer Z1 1.4.1.12

Pros

Dual (or single) pane explorer as you choose. It displays the contents of the selected folder in the tree view instantly, something that doesn't happen by default in windows 7 explorer. Easy tree navigation with arrow keys.

Cons

You can't change names, move folders, etc, on the tree view, hangs program. But you can do that on the panes at right.

Summary

Anyway, i like it. But since this rather old program was not properly designed for use with windows 7, I advice you to use only for browsing folders, or to find files. To find files select the folder in the tree and then select a file in the pane and then go for the tool.

Important. For Windows 7 64-bit there is a much better program now from the same author, Xplorer2 Lite, since is updated, and works better with Windows 7.

"One thumbnail can be viewed at a time. Manual Install"

February 01, 2009  |  By One-Step

 |  Version: 2xExplorer Z1 1.4.1.12

Pros

Will remember the last used folders. Simple program lite on resources. Manual, but simple install. Runs directly from the created installation folder.

Cons

Not an automatic install or un-install. Program folder and shortcuts require manual creation and deletion if removing.

Summary

A drawback of this program is it can't display thumbnail images in the folder contents view. It does have a floating window which shows a thumbnail of the currently selected file. Only one thumbnail can be viewed at a time. Therefore it has a primitive feel to it. I have tried several other file explorers and found Ultra explorer and Free Commander more user friendly and both are able to display thumbnails in their folder views.
