Editors' Review

+

As an avid producer, I deal with a lot of files that I need to organize on a frequent basis. I'm constantly opening dozens of windows and having to resize and layer them in ways that would make the average user's head explode. Today, modern browsers support tabbed views to help users be more efficient in navigating the Internet. Isn't it about time we get a similar solution for navigating our own file systems?

Enter XYplorer, an intuitive solution to navigating and managing your files on the PC.

When you first install and open XYplorer, you'll notice that it looks like a generic Explorer window, with a ribbon of icons that you'd probably rather ignore at first glance. The ingenuity of XYplorer starts manifesting itself when you learn to understand the layout.

XYPlorer organizes your files via three panels. The far left panel displays the general root structure of your computer, and the two right panels show you two folders. Each of the tabs is enabled by whatever folder or directory is active on the left. The behavior is similar to using tabbed browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and the modern Internet Explorer. There are plenty of useful features to help maintain your sanity, like visual filters for frequently used folders, viewing recent locations, and keyboard shortcuts to speed up your management. Advanced users can also take advantage of the scripting features that remain present from the previous editions (a help file is also provided for those who wish to learn). XYplorer was designed to cater to the needs of both standard and power users. There are many different features to help you maneuver your way around your files, but its core setup remains excellent compared with the stock Explorer that comes with Windows.

This file comes with a 30-day trial, with the full version being offered at around 30 bucks. Should you get it? That depends on how long you're willing to put up with a limited methodology of managing your files. As long as you have your OS, you're stuck with what it gives you. Try out the program and see if it simplifies your computing life.

"Good, Cluttered, problems"

August 22, 2013  |  By MarkBiomedical

 |  Version: XYplorer 12.80

Pros

Unlike Windows 8, it can find files. It is very complete with great options.

Cons

It returns too many files and they are hard to filter out. The interface is cluttered. It is frustrating and I want a happy experience.

Summary

This is a good product, but my company needs a great file explorer and this is not it. I will try then buy another.
