extremely simple to use, great in facilities!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 is...See why people do not like Total Commander 😡 Post your review

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!
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:
The only two Cons I can think of are that it's not open source and that it's Shareware (not Freeware).
Download them and compare. In my opinion, Double commander is the best. (Best TC alternavite :)
I've tried em all, and I always come back to TC! Worth every penny!

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
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.
