Unreal Commander Comments

Perfect!

Positive Comment by kingtobbe
about Unreal Commander Apr 2015

I recommend this software, it's not as advanced at Directory Opus but it's not far behind and a lot more modular than most of it's "competitors" so you can adapt how advanced you need it to be to make it just right for you. I higly recommend it!

I've pretty much tried all of the alternatives to the native file explorer but this is the one that suited me best. I mostly use it as a secondary explorer, for simple everyday tasks I usually use the native explorer.

Great orthodox file manager with lots of options. It's a pitty that it hasn't been updated for over two years. But it is still very useful.

Super file manager, with Universal Viewer included and more options than t commander. Maybe new themes will be nice, but, overall, the best alternative.
