File management

Move files among multiple locations with this well-designed program.

For many people, file management is as easy as saving files in the desired folder and moving them occasionally when needed. For some, though, it's a much more complex affair. Q-Dir Portable can help simplify this task by letting users view four different locations at once and move files among them with ease.

The program's interface is a little overwhelming at first glance, but once you take a moment to familiarize yourself, you see that it's simply four panes listing directories and devices on your computer. In each pane you can navigate to a different folder or directory and then move files between them simply by dragging and dropping. If the four-pane grid style isn't to your liking, Q-Dir Portable offers a wide selection of other views using between one and four panes. A variety of familiar buttons make it easy to navigate to different locations within your computer, add and delete files, and cut, copy, and paste. Users can also select files as favorites, making them easy to find in the future. Q-Dir Portable loses points for not having a proper Help file--all it contains is a list of keyboard shortcuts--but the program should be pretty easy for most users to figure out. The program's small size helps it live up to its name; it will easily fit on a USB drive for portability. Overall, we think that Q-Dir Portable is a great choice for anyone with above-average file management needs.

Q-Dir Portable comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program to all users.
