Editors' Review

+

This tool for browsing your computer offers a few extra tools Windows Explorer lacks, but we're not sure it makes a totally convincing argument for switching. The interface is similar to Windows Explorer's, though File Viewer adds a picture editor, a music and video player, a simple FTP client, and batch-processing capabilities. It also lets you preview some office and database file formats (PDF, DOC, and DBF).

However, the program failed to open XLS files in our testing. The interface is neither attractive nor straightforward, and we were baffled by the process for selecting files to rename. On the plus side, the 45-day trial is quite generous. But in the long run, many folks may find this program's usability issues negate many of its positives.

 |  Version: File Viewer 8.0

Pros

none noticed in all the disappointment

Cons

would not work well on my computer.
confusion with Canon imaging software called "file viewer utility".

Summary

Named nearly identical to Canon FileViewer Utility, which caused confusion. Seemed to conflict with other file organizing software.
I ultimately uninstalled it.
