User Reviews

  • Seems a bit old-fashioned, as in Windows 95 look and feel. The icons and text font are huge. Also, there's no way to set the window to a single panel. Sliding the middle bar left or right makes the entire file/directory view slide down because it's trying to fit all the icons in the toolbar into a single column.

  • Coming from TC, going to nowhere.

  • thank you very much

  • The only true replacement for Total Commander. And I've tried them all! Tab-Options feature is really cool (don't know if TC had it). I've been using it for 2 years now and don't even consider TC anymore, even in Windows. Iz should be on 1.0 since it's pretty much a complete software. If this gets any better it should receive 6 stars. :)

  • I use it on Window10, Mac OS and Linux, write custom plugins very useful application and free
