Editors' Review

Total Commander isn't much to look at, but offers plenty of neat ways to organize files and the easiest and quickest way to navigate through directories both locally and online. As easy as it is to use, its feature set makes it more suitable for advanced rather than novice users.

The program's installation and setup process take a few seconds longer due to some additional options users can choose such as multilanguage support, INI file location, etc. The program's layout might look dated to users new to this file manager, but to its faithful fans, Total Commander will look exactly how it should -- sleek and powerful. However, there are also many options for customization so users can change colors, font and icon sizes, menus, and more to get the look they want. The program features a traditional dual-pane interface, supports drag and drop, and lets users access its main features through easy-to-remember keyboard shortcuts. It's full of advanced options and tools like the built-in FTP client, built-in file viewer, multirename tool, nifty grouping, and many more. Additionally, advanced users will love the option to display hidden/system files. The program also has a built-in support for creating and extracting ZIP archives. It neatly packs files and does it better than anything that's already in Windows.

It's clear a lot of work went into this program and it's definitely worth the price. Due to its many advanced features Total Commander will be mostly useful to Web designers, developers, programmers, and all other users who need to upload and download files to/from remote servers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Total Commander 8.01.
