    It comes right after Directory Opus but that one is really expensive.

    XYplorer is the best manager to manage the files I've ever used, automate and simplify my work on your computer like never before. Clear and easy user interface, easily accessible functions and many other features that make a program that is in my opinion the best manager of files on the market that seamlessly integrates with the system and can perfectly replace Windows Explorer.
    His strong powerful functions and easy availability of the interface not only replace the Explorer, but also many other programs and gives us all these features in one place.
    When once you try working with XYplorer will not be able to think that someday you could use a computer without it.
    The program really worth buying!

    Tried almost all other file managers, none come even close.
    I don't know how I lived before it!

    -Portable directly from the author, that included file types and icons.
    -Regularly maintained.
    -Tons of options.

    Several commenters miss the ability of XYplorer to "set itself up as default file manager."
    I should make clear that this is NOT a feature of the file manager but one of the operating system. Editing the registry is necessary to make XYplorer (or any other file manager) the default file manager. However, since XYplorer is a portable application that's promoted as "not changing the system or registry" it does not offer to make this registry edit for you.
    However, the necessary changes are fairly easy to do and you can find helpful information in various XYplorer online resources.

    UPDATE: FYI, since v8.90.0000 a simple checkbox in configuration makes XYplorer the default file manager.
