Under its gorgeous looks, One Commander hides a miriad of useful tools. Column and double pane views, file batch management, file template creation, you name it! Despite some bugs (since it's still in beta) it works great and haven't used anything else at work since I found it back in december 2015. Would definitely recommend.

This is absolutely fantastic, I love it so much. All the other alternatives to File Explorer are a joke as far as design goes. The whole point is increasing usability, if your user interface is a nightmare how is that supposed to help? Anyway, I digress! This one is really well made! An EXCELLENT addition to my development workflow!

  • Can't middle-click on a folder to open a new tab
  • Can't middle-click on the folder breadcrumbs to open a new tab
  • Can't reopen a closed tab (<- for me, this is a HUGE problem)
  • Can't click-wait-click on a file to rename it. You need to hit F2 or right-click and then figure out which button is for renaming.
  • Won't move files if you move them too quickly, such as moving a file into a nearby folder. You have to wait a second for the program to catch up to what you're doing.

I can see this program being an advantage to someone that knows how to use it. For new users coming from the default Windows Explorer it'll take getting used to, or for previous users of Clover, it'll be clunky and missing some much-needed features. The above functionality is what I'm used to with Clover. But now that Clover is bundleware and thus won't last long, I'm looking for an alternative. After trying One Commander for a few days, I'm still looking.

Interface is pretty good, but quite slow for what should be very simple actions. Also the right click menu is a bit weird.

The best interface among all the file explorer i tested. Love it. Except the fact that the application freezes sometimes when i try to copy paste files for backup.

Switching from MacOS to Windows? Finder is still so far away better than File Explorer... so very useful is One Commander with its easy interface and especially with columns view.

Best alternative there is for file explorer. Most of other alternative offers only a 2-panel display which is convenient sometimes, but most of the time not, the other display option is a progressive panel which is really great. Lots of options. Just hope dev can continue.
