Editors' Review


XYplorer builds on the basic and familiar Explorer layout of main window, sidebar, and toolbar, with many customizable features like tabs and tree views. In fact, there seems to be little about XYplorer that can't be customized. It adds searching, previews, favorites, hotlists, scripting, shortcuts, and many more options for organizing, managing, and accessing your files and folders.


Super Explorer: XYplorer's outward resemblance to Windows Explorer is obvious, but that makes it easier to learn how to use it. You may already have a notion of what you'd wish Windows could do.

Customizable: Many tools can be customized, but few match XYplorer's options. For example, the Customize Tree tool offers ten options, plus there's a Mini Tree, Lock Tree command, and much more. And that's just trees -- the same applies to Folders, Toolbars, and just about everything else in XYplorer.

Recent Locations: Clicking Recent Locations shows where you've been on your PC -- very handy for troubleshooting, cleanup, and other PC maintenance.


Similar freeware: Freeware with similar capabilities to XYplorer isn't hard to find.

Trial limitations: XYplorer's free trial version has minor limitations but is otherwise fully functional, though we couldn't find anything disabled during our trial.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a new file management tool for Windows, make it XYplorer.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of XYplorer 15.00.

"As much control as you want!"

March 30, 2015  |  By Dianne DeSha

 |  Version: XYplorer 15.00


30-day trial, inexpensive, powerful, amazingly customizable, no dreaded "green loading bar" on windows folders


Can come across as intimidating or too complex for someone who doesn't need all the power features, but it can be easily customized to be as simple as you want.


I've been using XYplorer for months now and haven't even touched all of the possible commands (and I may never get to them all). It's straightforward enough to use just like Windows Explorer, but with as many tricks and customizations as you could want if you want to use them. My favorite aspects are that it integrates with Teracopy, takes the place of the little freeware file renamer I've always used (one less rarely-used program to install), and the two-paned, multi-tab setup makes transferring and organizing files and folders simple. If you've ever had two Explorer windows open next to each other so you can drag between, use this instead. (It also isn't subject to the dreaded, mysterious "endless green loading bar" that's plagued Windows for years now.)
