Total Commander 8.51a
Customize the way files are displayed
The main window features a simple, classic design that poses no accommodation problems. By default, you gain access to two file explorers that display elements in a detailed view. You can change how files and folders are displayed, as well as further enhancing accessibility by enabling a tree explorer.
You are given the possibility to run multiple instances of the application in order to allow fast and efficient manipulation of files. You can easily edit, copy, move, delete files, as well as create new folders or enable synchronization.
Keep important files safe
In addition to basic management, the application comes equipped with a few extra tools. You can take advantage of an integrated archiver in order to protect your files. For even more security, files can also be split into multiple parts and later on combined, or even have them encoded using various algorithms.
Make it suit your style and needs
Customization is also available, with the possibility to have the upper toolbar fitted only with functions you frequently use. Moreover, you can add shortcuts to external applications, notepad being added by default in case you quickly need to write something down.
An integrated, powerful search engine
In case you simply can't spot the desired file, an integrated search engine is sure to fetch it. A small window is brought up with settings the let you fully configure search criteria. You can issue a simple process by specifying name and location, or snoop through advanced settings or even previous search sessions.
To sum it up, Total Commander is by far one of the best file managers out there. The only experience needed before using the application is pure basic computer navigation knowledge, being accessible to beginners and experts alike. It barely takes up any resources, providing all you ask for in return.
