    The best there is. I cannot do without four panes. Development is continuous but the developer is not very responsive.

    Really great file manager, but it appears that most people today don't do much managing of files - the result of huge drives that fail so infrequently.

    Still, neatness is next to... and to that end, this is the best free file manager extant. It is so configurable, and the author updates and improves it frequently.

    This is a really good bit of software. I have been a "two-pane" file manager for many years (How does anyone use a single pane file manager like Windows Explorer?). For several years I have been using the paid version of Xplorer2 (http://zabkat.com/index.htm) and will continue to use it. However, Q-Dir is on my "tool box" USB stick to install on friends PCs when I am asked for help.

    If you don't want to pay for Xplorer2 then Q-Dir or Nexus file manager (http://www.xiles.net/nexusfile/) are certainly worth a try.

    Up to 4.84 now.

    Great program. 6 annoying problems I can think of right now.

    1. The tool bar icons are ridiculously small. I'm not kidding you, those icons are only about 2mm on some displays. I think Nenad has exceptional vision, and believes everyone else does. Come on man, make the icons 4x bigger, or at least an option for large icons.

    2. The "Save Current State at Desktop" is wonderful, but has a Win 7 quirk. You can click the icon on the desktop and it works fine. However, when you pin it to the Task Bar, it starts in a tiny miniature window, not saving the window position and size settings.

    3.When you choose to not show the address bar, the tool bar icons also disappear. A "back", "forward", and "up 1 level" button among others are very important even without an address bar.

    4. Selecting the check boxes in the file window lags. You check the box, and it appears not to be checked. In a few seconds the box will then appear checked. This has been improved over the months, the delay used to be terrible, now it's not terrible, just bad.

    5. Refreshing is slow or absent. When files are deleted or moved, the window is not updated. I must use F5 a lot, very annoying.

    6. Large file operations completely lock the program. When unzipping, moving or deleting large files, the program is completely unresponsive until the operation finishes. The Windows Explorer does not do this. This is annoying. I think Q-Dir needs better multi threading functionality.
