    "Absolutely the best file manager."

    March 30, 2013  |   By drreflex


    This program is to Windows Explorer what Notepad is to Word. There are no better file managers for windows. Xtree was the first high end file manager. Symantec purchased the company and for a while Norton Commander was a very good file manager. Total Commnader follows with the same basic two pane default view but provides an order of magnitude more functionality including customizable functions. In addition to the functions noted in the article check out Directory Hotlist, Multi-Rename Tool, Split/Combine Files, Encode/Decode Files, Copy to Clipboard Options, Synchronize Directories, Test Archives, Verify Checksums, and Customizable View and Edit functions. Anyone who regularly manages files under Windows should own a copy. The time savings alone will pay for the product in short order.


    There are none for me at the moment.

    With complex tasks it may take a minute or two to find the function you are looking for. If you don't find the function, don't forget to check out the website for a custom add on to perform the task you are looking for.


    In the line of Xtree - XtreePro - Norton Commander, Total Commander takes file management to a new height. IT IS SIMPLY THE BEST FILE MANAGER FOR WINDOWS.
