One of my must-have applications on any computer I use. Without Total Commander I feel like without the right hand.

Directory Opus, anyone?

about Total Commander and Directory Opus · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

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, 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.

When Windows 95 came out and Norton Commander tried to look cool but failed miserably, I found this amazing program. It was called Windows Commander back then and it was truly what Norton Commander should have been. I've never found anything that comes even close to the efficiency of this beauty. If you used Norton Commander back in the DOS days, like I did, the functions used the most (view, edit, copy, move, delete) are on the same old F keys. INS key to select individual files is great, the number pad asterisk (*) to select all saves time too. One little trick that is handier than you realize until you're working on a PC without TC is when you only want to delete all but a few files in a given folder, you simply select the files you want to keep (INS or right click) then hit the number pad * and now all the unwanted files are selected, F8+ enter and you're done. Another nice feature is that you can view files within a zip file by simply hitting F3. For those who are worried about what it looks like, I'll take it just the way it is, thank you very much. I consider this a utility not a vanity. I purchased this program the first year it came out. Probably nearly 10 years later I had lost my licensed copy (nasty divorce) but was happy to pay for it a second time. When I tried to pay for it, the author of the program still had my license info on file and sent me what I needed even though I told him I didn't mind paying again. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY!!

Using TotalCommander since the Diskette day's... One of the best 2-pane filemanagers around! Even on Android it's great!

Best file manager. Best free alternative: Free Commander.

I use it to manage my files on PC, to finding for duplicates, to batch renaming files, BACKING UP & SYNCING my files and it has built-in trustworthy file copying-moving feature.

It's BEST OF BEST for PC. Do not trust any other reviews which has title that "Best file managers comparison". The usually suggest other paid and they're newly have TC's features and they are expensive than TC.

Best choise for PC. For Android, MiXPlorer is best... .

Be it in Windows or Android, TC is from far the best file manager I ever used (and I keep on comparing such softwares for decades).
I once boought a licence for it (at last century) and keep on updating it for free.
It's in fact so powerful that there are parts I even don't know about.
Simply said, it fully replaces ftp, winzip, explorer, lynx (if you want to browser web site in text mode), mozilla ftp, svn, any file renamer, etc.
It allows me to make full duplicates of my web sites (server side!), synchronize whole disks or cloud backups, compare files even in different zip archives, refine successive searches (in content too), and so on.
For developers or media producers, imagine what you can do by being able to assign 3 programs (instead of 1 in windows) to each type of fileā€¦

Never found a thing to do that would have been simpler with standard File Explorer of microsoft than with TC. Often found out that daily use of TC could just not be done without it (or it would spend a lot of time).
And the ability to annotate file is so useful!

Let have a try at it, and let alone the mouse. You'll gain in productivity!

P.S. Forgot to mention Alt+f10 to move instantly to any directory. Such a time winner!
So bad I don't have it on MacOS nor linux (natively I mean, as Wine or VBox will allow you to use it).

It's age can be seen. But why change what works? It's essential. Can't live without it. And yes, I am one of the older folks who remember Norton Commander :-)

By far, it's the best filemanager out there. Superfast file search by name/content with optional regex syntax, file comparer, directory comparer, FTP client, SCP/SFTP client with plugin, bulk file renaming, quick search file/directory name inside current directory, and much more.

The best feature of this is that, I could use this on Android too! I have 300 files numbered 001 - 300 and i tried to copy them from my phone to my mp3 player connected to my android phone. I tried using so many File explorers, i also tried using many sync software, but all of them come into the mp3 player in a scrambled format! i.e. 125 followed by 005 followed by 245 and randomly! Until I used Total Commander, it moved all the files in alphabetical order! I am impressed and the number of features provided by Total Commander are huge! So many features stuffed into the small Android Screen. Awesome!

I love this program since I started to test it. Quick to search files or text inside files and the key-use mode I love it.

I just love this application. I've been using it since Windows 95 when it was called Windows Commander.

It's always open in the background and it got so many features, and you can also customize it and add plugins like Dropbox-support and so on.

I'd rate it as the most useful application ever for anyone that's need to browse around the filesystem from time to time, rename stuff..... and the list goes on. Try it!
