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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

What's new in version 20.50

  • Filter By Properties. Now you can filter the file list by each of the hundreds of available item properties. E.g. you can show only those photos with a certain aspect ratio, or only those MP3s from a certain artist.
  • Filter By Lengths. Now you can filter the file list by the item name lengths. E.g. you can show only those items with 12 or less characters in the name, or only items longer than 259 characters.
  • Focus Next Selected Item. Now you can assign a keyboard shortcut of your choice to each of two new commands that move the focus to the next or previous selected item. Quite useful to quickly browse through the currently selected items while giving the mouse a rest.
  • Full Name Column Select. Having a hard time hitting the name of a short named file? Now you have the option to use the full width of the name column as click target. Should increase your hits.
  • Shuffle Your Files. There is a new dice shaped button on the toolbar. If you are feeling lucky and bored at the same time you can use it to shuffle your image, sound, or video collections.
  • Fat Recent Location Pin. Now the current path pin is drawn fatter than the others. So you know where you are at a glance.
  • Quick MIDI Preview. Now the Quick Audio Preview supports MIDI files.
  • Set Extension. Now the dialog has a Most Recently Used (MRU) list.
  • Flexible Size Format. This format has been improved to take even less horizontal space in the Size column.
  • Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Sweet.
