Default windows explorer is a sack of trash and in each newer version of windows past win98 it gets worse as douse your default ability to search for files, win vista or newer you can't find anything in their, win7 doesn't even let you search for things in a folder, know how you find the EXE your looking for in win7 default search.

 

Simple start/search *.exe = 10000000000 print out of every EXE on the computer, WOW pos epic suck.

this is what i use, so what do you use ?

 

Ps: windows loves to hide files/data in partitions/HDD and each new version of the Os the topic get worse, its like windows has a built in rootkit for hiding things, i nuke that topic dead in my install, if its on my hdd i want to see it what about you ?

You know that some files are hidden and marked as system files for a reason, right?

Personally I prefer FreeCommander if your are looking for tabs,dual-pane interface and other powerful features. Multi commander is also similar and free !

I know that stile and i don't like horizontal stile twin plains, FreeCommander reminds me of the old norton commander of old for dos in a lot of ways, it was ok for its time and better then dealing with dos then command line but FreeCommander reminds me of the same thing just for windows.

 

multi commander from the pics i looked at looks like it wastes screen space all the place and is one more file manager that is twin horizontal not vertical.

 

Sadly iv bin looking for a replacement for a long time and have yet to find one that's better over all though more often then not i just use the default one in winxp.
