No more free version. Bit of a dampener. Have moved on.

Really nice, I'm torn between 4 and 5 stars. The reason is that there are compatibility issues with drag/drop and 32/64 bit applications.

It has a plethora of valuable options. The menus are so well designed and intuitive that, although I've used XYplorer heavily for almost two weeks I've yet to have to consult the on-line documentation. That documentation, by the way, is excellent: thorough without being overwhelming, designed to facilitate access to particular topics, and there is even an extensive manual one can download in PDF from the site. It does have an awful lot of features; but because it's so well designed, users can just ignore features they don't need at the moment and/or don't want to bother learning about. I could get it doing moderately complicated file-management tasks in a very short period of time.

Windows Explorer has never been particularly well-designed; it’s dorky and awkward to use. Worse, it lacks several obviously important features. Many years ago I switched to an alternative shareware file manager which was a vast improvement in every respect over Explorer. But for some reason, over the years, as the designers of this produce modified and issued new releases of, they’ve screwed it up in a variety of ways: removed some useful features, added some whose purpose seems inscrutable,introduced bugs and irritating reminders that pop up to not purpose, embedded in it mechanisms for upgrades and to ensure that it’s used on only one machine---mechanisms that malfunction more often than they should (that is, more often than never). Having finally gotten fed up, I did a lot of research on line in search of an alternative; XYplorer was one of a handful of packages I decided to try.It only took a day or two of testing to decide that XYplorer is so good that I had no need to even try any of the other options I downloaded. Almost every time I use it, I discover new features that are useful, features I didn't even know it has. It has already earned back its (extremely modest cost) many times over.

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.

With Windows 7 Explorer replacements became unnecssary for me but if I was stuck with Win8 I would be using one again. XY isn't bad at all though I find it chokes on large image folders. With so many great free alternatives it's also hard to justify it's price tag.

While I love tabbed browsing for internet browsers I hate them for working between explorer windows, I find dual pane to be better. Enter NexusFile, a free dual pane explorer replacement that has all the features I need. Sadly the last update was close to a year ago, showing just how little used these types of software of become

To begin, I'm not knocking this program completely, but it is, in my opinion, not the best of its type. I received a free version [Giveaway of the Day] a while back, and was really excited to get it. But, after about a week, I found myself using it less and less. That was over a year ago.

Definitely a good program, just not a great program.

I much prefer Explorer², from Zabkatremia Software, and there is a freeware version which does not nag, nor time out. {I have not been compensated in any way, I simply believe that users should help other users whenever possible, and Explorer² is so much more useful to me, I think it may be to others}

Rating good but not great...3 stars

I use this all day - every day. If you think you might need the features of a powerful explorer replacement, this great utility deserves a shot.

Attractively priced, constantly and meaningfully updated, and a very responsive developer: what more could you ask for?

This is simply the best explorer replacement existing. Been using it for
years now. Daily. One of my best buys ever. It's the countless smart ideas
built into this product. Saved me countless hours. Color coding files by
date! Hey, I would feel blind without it. Cheers to the developers! Good
stuff, keep it up!!
