I remember my father showed me this program. And she did not like me much. But now I can't live without it.See why people like Total Commander 😍
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...See why people do not like Total Commander 😡
Great software used for many-many years across many different windows versions.
Interface too classic
I remember my father showed me this program. And she did not like me much. But now I can't live without it.
One of the best Android file manager we have on our website
This software make me an automatisation freak :D
Such a great product.
Love it. Helps becoming a keyboard shortcut master :)
Could not 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).
I remember seeing this around in the 90s in the days of dos. It's really cool that he's kept up to date since then, insuring that it works with the new version of windows.
My gripe with this software is that the dev has not touched the UI since the days of windows 3.1 and that this software has not evolved at all, yet he is asking for a premium price of 45$ which is way too much for what it is. If he was asking for 10 or 15$, I would have been ok: that's fair, he is putting working just keeping it functional from OS to OS, he is hosting it etc. At 45$, he's just f-ing greedy and it is so out of date. Such a low value deal. I can't believe this old piece of junk got as many votes on this site as it did...
Anyways, there are some nice alternatives to this: XYplorer has an intensly solid freeware version and the payware version is currently on special at 40US$. It's a Christmas deal but a regular price of 80$, I would think it must be going on special very often because no one would pay 80$ for a file browser. I'd say the freeware version of XYp has 70% of TotC's functions with a far superior GUI, customization and flexibility. The pay version of XYplorer just blows total commander out of the water with advanced scripting functionality, tagging, color coding, directory mirroring, mirrored browsing, tab sets, pane sets, favorite folder and files, hotlists, recently opened apps, windows shell integration.
It's not all about the looks.
- TC costs $44 with lifetime upgrades, XYplorer costs $99.95 with lifetime upgrades.
- No advanced scripting functionality. Currently it's TC's philosophy to leave scripted actions to non-GUI tools since they usually perform best, even though it might be easier for the average user to use a GUI to create a scripted action. For users who are not afraid of a little bit of coding, AutoHotkey can integrate with TC quite well.
- Tagging. It depends, some people think tagging should be a filesystem-level feature, for some it suffices to see the tags inside their file manager of choice. TC does not offer tagging natively but you can emulate it using file descriptions and eg. appropriate color filters.
- Directory mirroring. Not sure what you mean by that - copy content from one dir to another dir automatically? Synchronize directories on demand?
- Mirrored browsing. Is implemented in TC.
- Tab sets. Implemented in TC.
- Pane sets. Not sure what that is.
- Favorite folder and files. Implemented
- Hotlists. Again, not sure what that is.
- Recently opened apps. From where? Start menu? The file manager itself? Desktop icons? Hard to track all the options.
- Windows shell integration. Again, not sure what you mean by that. If one is willing to download a .reg file and click on it, one can add TC to the right-click menu as desired.

Yeah, that's just too much! Very old one tool and very classical design.
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.
A single DOPUS Pro license with ssh and usb export support costs $110 US. Wow!
Download them and compare. In my opinion, Double commander is the best. (Best TC alternavite :)
Hey every one post your top liked (add-ons) Plugins
That you can`t imagine Total commander without it
Hi Every one post your best Plugins (add-ons)
you have used with Total commander and you can not imagine total commander without them
First of all this app has got just two output containers MP4 and MKV and this is totally full of shame
Second it is not even that kind of program compared to other apps if we (compared Gui and options)
Third this program should be disliked 466 time and liked that much
I am sorry about the first comment came by wrong there are no "Edit' or "Delete" buttons for some reason
