If you need a more robust file browsing software than Windows Explorer, Xplorer2 Lite might be worth a download.

Pros

Tabbed navigation: Xplorer2 allows you to set up tabs, which can greatly speed up file navigation, as well as unify your file management workflow.

Highly customizable: Xplorer2 gives you the option for customizing the interface, so it is laid out exactly how you want it. You can also customize the type of file data displayed, so that it's relevant to your task.

Cons

Non-unified design: When you work in a Windows ecosystem, Windows Explorer is part of the overall design of that system. It fits stylistically with everything else you're going to do from that PC. Although similar, the design sensibility in Xplorer2 is not the same as that used in Windows.

Help not included: When you try to access the help, the software lets you know that it is in a PDF that needs to be downloaded separately. This should have been included in the initial download.

Bottom Line

If you're unhappy with Windows Explorer, then Xplorer2 could be for you. For those who like complete control over file management, this software offers it.
