Editors' Review


Windows Explorer is a pretty basic application, and if you've ever tried to do any serious file management with it, you've probably wished for an alternative that's easier to work with. NexusFile is just such an alternative. This flexible file manager lets you work with files in ways that would be impossible with Windows Explorer.

The program's interface is fairly intuitive, although aesthetically it might not be everyone's cup of tea. White and colored type on a black background isn't the easiest thing to read, and although the program is skinnable, this is only true of the outer portions of the interface. Still, this is a relatively minor complaint, as NexusFile is easy to navigate and work with. The interface is divided into two panes, and users can navigate to any location on their computer in either pane and then drag and drop files between them. The program also has a series of helpful buttons across the top, allowing users to quickly access their desktop or documents, or view all audio, video, or image file in a given location. We were disappointed to find that NexusFile doesn't have a Help file, although there is an online forum where users can ask questions if they're really in a bind. Overall, we found NexusFile easy to use, and we think it's a significant improvement over Windows Explorer.

NexusFile is free. It comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program to all users.

"So close...."

February 18, 2015  |  By mss627

 |  Version: NexusFile


Dual Pane feature (If it's so simple why hasn't Microsoft incorporated it).
Built Network tools like FTP Connect.
Zip and RAR extractor
Additional tools like File Splitter/Joiner, Compare Folder, Text Editor/Viewer


No 64 bit version for Windows.


I'm sure there are better file managers but not at this price. NexusFile has been the go to File explorer in our datacenter for a couple of years now. My only gripe is that in a world of 64 bit processors how can there not be a 64 bit version for Windows? 8.1 doesn't even recognize it as an option relegating it to the (x86) folder.
