Installer now only available from ... https://cubicexplorer.en.softonic.com/ (4Aug-2017)
Portable version has vanished from the internet.

A real shame, a brilliant file manager, almost gone
I have squirreled away both portable and installer on my archive HDD
:( :(

As an enthusiastic user of CubicExplorer (since 2013) I just mounted (portable) CubicExplorer on my 3rd PC.
Love the drives bar (optional), bookmarks-favorites panel (optional), v.customizable GUI,
Save Sessions, save history, toolbars can populated with more tools than available in WinExp
The Context Menu (inherited from WinExp) is incomplete especially 3rd party items, but not critical for me.
With a lot of; programs, files, WinExp windows open ... task bar gets very crowded.
CubEx is a handy, easily seen in taskbar, extra files-manager without being too overblown with bells and whistles.

Super-customizable view of your files and your computer

about CubicExplorer · · Helpful Not helpful

The real usefulness of this program depends on two things:

  1. You have a lot of files on your computer on all different topics
  2. You want to be able to access them quickly and in a customizable format

If you're in this position, the bookmarking system in CubicExplorer isn't just intelligent, it's genius. Arranging files, web links, and programs by topical trees is just such a fantastic feature, once you start using it, there's just no going back. I can't believe how it simplified my work at more than one job now, giving me quick access to the wealth of tools and information on my machine. Although the program has some minor issues like an undo function, file preview, and the fact that it appears to have ended development, it's irreplaceable. Hopefully someone picks up the open code for this project and continues work. Just as I donated to the original project, I'd definitely give to it's successor.

CubicExplorer -- a perfect file management program

about CubicExplorer · · Helpful Not helpful

This is the first alternative file management app that I consider a worthhile replacement for Windows Explorer.
Registering (or unregistering) as WinExp replacement is as simple as buttons in CubicExplorer -> Options.
Customizing is almost infinite -- drag rearrange the GUI -- customize keyboard shortcuts -- customize toolbars.
Then there are bookmarks (drag and drop) even group bookmarks in custon folders.
FileFind feature is not brilliant, needs some work -- file contents find is very slow and inaccurate.

For my needs CubicExplorer with a third party file-contents-finder (FileSearchEX) is a perfect combo
CubicExplorer is a well designed program. Suits my small office needs perfectly.

Alternative as an image viewer

about CubicExplorer and Geeqie Image Viewer, ACDSee, XnView · · Helpful Not helpful

I know that it is primarily a file manager. But its user interface can be configured in such a way that it looks very similar to how I configure ACDSee Classic, Cornice, GQview, Geeqie and XnView. I like image viewers with a panel for folder tree and/or file list, and another panel with image preview. And Windows lacks good open source image viewers with such user interface, so here's my suggestion.

Solid Replacment

about CubicExplorer · · Helpful Not helpful

This is a solid and very useful explore replacement.
I started using it a month ago and have completely fallen in love with it.
Though I do wish there was real plug-in support, or it was made with open source of free compiling tools in mind so that I could roll my own version of it.
