Total Commander

Total Commander

Total Commander® is the best File Manager for Windows (formerly known as Windows Commander). It has two fixed windows side by side (like a well-known file manager for DOS). The aim of the program is to put you in total control of your files. Total Commander comes in different versions for multiple platforms (it is also available for mobile devices - primarily Android and Windows Phone).

Total Commander is shareware. If you use the program for longer than one month, you are expected to register it (the unregistered program is fully functional. Unregistered users only have to click one of three buttons to dismiss a nag screen at start-up). Registration includes all future updates (until further notice), provided that you get the latest version yourself by downloading it. Total Commander for Windows comes in three different versions (32-bit, 64-bit and 16-bit).



Multi Commander

Multi Commander

Multi Commander is a great alternative to Total Commander. This is a File Manager for the Windows platform that uses the popular and powerful two-panel interface. Multi Commander has everything you need in your daily work with files to increase speed and performance. Most importantly, the program is completely free!

Multi Commander is a multi-tabbed file manager and is an alternative to the standard Windows Explorer. It uses the very popular and efficient dual-panel layout. Multi Commander has everything you need in your daily work with files to increase your speed and efficiency.

Multi Commander has all the standard features that any file manager has, like copy, move, rename, view. But Multi Commander's big strengths are the special features that allow you to accomplish advanced tasks with ease. Tasks such as auto-unpacking, auto-sorting, browsing inside archives, editing the Windows Registry and accessing FTP, searching for and viewing files and pictures. There is also powerful, built-in scripting support that allows you automate many tasks and expand its functionality. It allows you to do everything from the keyboard using shortcuts so that you can work quickly and efficiently. Multi Commander for Windows comes in two different versions (32-bit, 64-bit).
