Goodbye

about FreeCommander · · 1 Helpful

It worked great in my Win XP days....nowadays it just loads for ages and doesn't work as fine as it did....I'm on win7 and as the previous previewer mentioned: I guess I might have to go through various options to make it cool for me again....but I don't have the time and I don't think that's the point - it's supposed to be a fast tool that facilitates things that Windows can't be smart enough to provide, right ? RIP, I'll miss you.

My favourite file manager on Windows!

about FreeCommander · ·

FreeCommander XE is a very likable file manager for Windows. Its main problem is that all of its features are enabled by default so it's very cluttered at first. Once you plow through the various (unfortunately quite unintuitive) preferences dialogs and disable pretty much everything (tabs, all toolbars but the topmost, etc) and tone down the maybe-it-looked-modern-15-years-ago color scheme (you have to change this in more than 10 different places to make it look consistent unless you like the default), you get a very clean, yet powerful file manager, great for everyday use.

can't live without it ^^. The only missing feature compared to Total Commander is queuing file transfer. Some feature even better, like change to upper directory with clicking the address bar, just like Windows 7 explorer.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to switch to a genuine 1-panel view. You can only set one of the panels to 0%, but once you drag or resize the window, the second pane will appear again from the side.

FreeCommander can show foldersize and sort by foldersize

about FreeCommander · ·

Beside many other useful functions FreeCommander shows (also sorted) how much space the files and directories consume on your disk drives, similar to JDiskReport or TreeSizeFree, but as opposed to "Treesize Free" also on network disk drives.
To sort the folders using the size of folders you must select "Size of folders" in the menu "Folder":

Other useful features:

Compress and unzip, file editor, editable directory favorites, editable program favorites, comparing directories, easy access to system directories, computer administration, desktop, startmenue, editable toolbar: secure delete, multiple rename, ....
