This file manager has everything i could expect from a good tool. The customization capabilities are absurdally elaborate (in a good way).

Very fast loading big folders!

I have a couple folders with tons of contents, video clips, and other files.
XYplorer were able to load up and sort by date/name/size very quickly.
Windows explorer failed me in that regard.

This software is really worth to try. sometimes 3 updates in a week. And when you want to use the paid version its not that expensive. Because of the updates.

This is a very good filemanager. It has a tree view and a two-pane view, and much of it is very customisable (it includes scripting support too). There are aspects which are not the most streamlined they could be: you can define shortcut keys to take you to a folder, for example, but it doesn't automatically suggest the present folder as the destination which would be nice (and is done by Altap Salamander); also, it is not super streamlined for keyboard navigation: there is no ".." for navigating up a folder level, for example.

However, it does have some features which are very powerful and not really seen elsewhere: built-in tags, color coding, labels, view filters. For the most part these outweigh the downsides.

This portable app is amazingly fast (especially searches) and features such as tabbed browsing, customizable shortcuts, all sorts of filters (lets you see only stuff you want to), scripts (that can do a lot of complicated tedious tasks with one key press) and several other features that make my life so much easier. And i carry it always on my USB so i can use it anywhere with ease. A super app for those interested in file management and a must-have for all administrators.

A great filemanager for Windows. It's fast, clean, mean. Didi i say it's fast? :)
Tabs are great and the upcoming dual-pane will make it even greater. Use a lifetime license and never look back.

For the record: While I am the author of a blog supporting this app, and also participate often in the user forums, I receive no compensation for doing so, as I just want to make XYplorer more known.
