    the most powerful and easier to use file manager.

    You can log a complete 2T in seconds,

    search at the same time for *.pdf *.xls* wooowwwww

    You can even search all tag files for a word inside them without opening them one by one.

    or rename a bunch of files from abc.xyz to 123abc.xyz in a simple operation that only takes a couple of second

    you can sort ALL the files in ALL directories in ONE window. You can also sort ALL the directories and search their names with filters....

    you can edit a file in text mode or in hex mode...

    woooooowwwwwwwww The possibilities are nearly endless.

    No other files manager can do that much.
    No other files manager is as fast.
    No other files managers can do as much!

    Like any powerful tools it takes a little use to is is worth it.

    If your serious about file management then you seriously need ZTreeWin and this beta has not given me any problems - it just gets better - and easier!

    To abuse a line from a song "...every little thing he does is magic...".
    I emailed Kim with a query and within a couple of hours I had my answer - "you can list in date created order, it's in beta v2.4.145". I can stop going mad at last, thank you, thank you, thank you for yet again saving me from hours of Windows Explorer tedium. Never needed such a thing as date created listing 'til recently and yet again it's one of the zillion things you can do properly with files in ZTreeWin with the result you want. OK, it's not zillions but there's more here than I've had use for to date ...but one day I may! Like many others, been with this since XTree so I'm a fan but do use it, read the help, make your life easier and save hours!! And send him a donation now and then...

    I've been a user of XTree, and all its successors to date, and find it to be the most easily useful file manager. Windows Explorer is no match for this wonderful program.

    I have been Ztree user since its rebirth from Xtree.
    It is so powerful when you become familiar with it, that when I have to use a computer without Ztree I feel like trying to run in the mud.
    Thank you Kim, from Mexico

    I clung to my copy of XTree until XTree Gold came out - I didn't like the latter and continued to use XTree until it no longer worked for me. Then I found ZTreeWin and I have never looked back.

    This is an indespensable tool for IT folk, developers, and other file wranglers. That said, the basic interface is intuitive enough for the casual PC-savvy user. (Advanced commands require some digging around and might frustrate a beginner.)

    If I find a file-wrangling task I want to do, I just assume it is in there and go find it - I am seldom disappointed!

    Using v2.4.121 I suddenly find that 'G' for global doesn't work any more.
    What gives? How do I display a large collecting of many logged files in many directories so that I can tag them for ALT copy to another drive... :((
