Editors' Review

+

Eat your heart out, Windows Explorer. This powerhouse file manager beats the pants off Microsoft's built-in utility on almost every count. Start with the interface: Xplorer2 lets you browse two or more folders in one window using panes (as in Total Commander or FAR) and tabs.

You can save several window layouts and quickly switch among them when necessary. Visual filters let you more easily navigate overcrowded directories. Selecting several files is a breeze, since you don't have to hold down the Ctrl key. Xplorer2's tweaks aren't limited to the interface, either. You can rename multiple files at once, split and merge files, synchronize folders, and shred data to prevent recovery.

The program supports NTFS hard links (which are more powerful than shortcuts, allowing you, for instance, to move the source file without breaking a link). An enhanced DOS command line lets you create scripts for processing file batches. All in all, there's a good chance you won't go back to Windows Explorer once you get a look at Xplorer2.

"The perfect alternative to Windows Explorer"

December 20, 2014  |  By liang_mike

 |  Version: Xplorer2 Professional 2.5

Pros

Faster than Windows Explorer. Minimalistic and tabbed UI. Folder synchronization.

Cons

No way to turn off "double-click empty space level up".

Summary

I have been using xplorer lite for years (and explorer PRO for couple days now), and I love it! It is a clean and fast program, in terms of execution and user interface. I also love the folder synchronization. I would recommend explorer to anyone who is frustrated with Windows Explorer.

"Excellent program!"

November 09, 2014  |  By gordan84

It has everything that Windows Explorer does not. I like it more than other file managers I have tried, for example Total Comander.
It has a simple interface with many options and customization.

Cons

Not cheap.

Summary

Excellent file manager that everyone should have.

"Superb Power Tool for File Management"

December 23, 2013  |  By JHolsapple

 |  Version: Xplorer2 Professional 2.4

Pros

Seriously designed for full control and expedient manipulation of files. Shortcuts like CTL R for "Refresh" are a breath of fresh air. (Why Windows Explorer still uses F5 to refresh after 25 years is a mystery to me.) Split- and tabbed- screens interface, along with multiple Xplorer2 instances, make it a breeze to work in 20+ directories, something I do often.

Cons

Novices beware. This is a 230VAC, 5HP power tool. It can be dangerous. Expect a bit of a learning curve before you'll be proficient enough to blast through thick walls of files.

"xplorer2 - User-friendly, Powerful and Lots of Features"

December 17, 2013  |  By donharmon

 |  Version: Xplorer2 Professional 2.4

Pros

The shortcomings of Windows Explorer, the native Windows file manager, are likely well known to you. A superb replacement is xplorer2. Inexpensive, xplorer2 really shines when you need to work with multiple drives, folders and files. You can open multiple view panes and then click on multiple folders and files, while keeping all your view panes open and visible. Xplorer2 has tabbed browsing, the handy tabs adding great flexibility.

Xplorer is mature and highly developed. It is thus not only very stable but offers a dizzying array of handy extra features. Two of my favorites are the search and find tools. Combining these tools with the slick file management, you can make quick work of reorganizing the mess that your drive(s) may have become!

Finally, the interface is highly customizable. You can color your folders, for example, and alter your layout and view panes to suit the way you work. In short, this is an invaluable program that does many things superbly at an affordable price.

Cons

The program has endless tutorials, videos, local help and on-line help. These are more than enough for you to master the program. But I wish it had a beginner mode, so pointing to a button or action would pop up a balloon explaining what it can do and how to do it, if you ask for more detail. This "Con" is petty, but it is hard to find Cons with this program!

You can create and save many layouts for different jobs, custom commands. You can create filters for colored files, based on different properties and so on

Cons

May be little bit complicated options menu.

Summary

Once you get used to it, you can't even think about stop using it

"Powerful tabbed dual-pane file manager."

July 03, 2013  |  By key_r

 |  Version: Xplorer2 Professional 2.3.0.1

Pros

I have been looking for a decent replacement windows explorer for months, I have tested many ones (QDir, Total Commander and others), without much satisfaction. I finally found Xplorer2, that replacing the windows explorer with laurels and still has many additional features - dual-pane, multi-tab, sync, robust search etc.- I need to work with many text files as pdf, doc, msg, txt, xls and others, and I need a lot of agility. The Xplorer2 makes your work with mastery! And have one of the best User Manual that I ever seen, very detail and full of screenshots.

Cons

There are so many options, that to understand the more advanced it takes an additional dedication, but after that your day becomes much more productive.

Summary

I strongly recomend the use of this software for all who need agility in manipulating files.
