I remember my father showed me this program. And she did not like me much. But now I can't live without it.

Are you a grandmother that only uses her computer to open pictures and send e-mails? If so, forget about this program. But if you are an average internet user chances are you'll find this program useful in your everyday life. Needless to say, if you are an advanced PC user (e.g. an IT guy, or a researcher) this program will become a MUST. As others have mentioned, I simply cannot live without TotalCommander.

Listing all the features would be poitnless. Instead, think of anything you may need... and find out how TC has a function to accomplish it. A few examples:
- do you need to rename a large batch of files? Open TC, press Control+M
- do you need to copy an entire folder? Open TC, press Control+Plus, F5
- do you need to open a new explorer window? No need, just open a new tab with Control+T
- do you need to peek into a file but you don't wanna open an editor? Control+Q

The only two Cons I can think of are that it's not open source and that it's Shareware (not Freeware).


Directory Opus, anyone? 2 Helpful

about Total Commander and Directory Opus Feb 2013

Well, I used to think this was the bee's knees, and looked down upon people who still use Win Explorer for their file management needs.

TC is miles away from using the windows default.

But truth is, Directory Opus is pretty much the same number of miles away from TC. Too bad I've gotten so used to using it, because the transition would now be easier.

Look up some tutorials on that to see what you can do with DOpus to see what I'm talking about.

Download them and compare. In my opinion, Double commander is the best. (Best TC alternavite :)
