Thread Starter

really need a good file app, all this trash and un-usability is driving me crazy

first question: do any of these show when they were last updated? or does ms store not show that?

here's the file apps tested, ranked from least worst overall to complete trash

one commander
xplorer lite

to complete trash

total commender
double commander

here's the checklist of what is looked for

basic stuff

☐ middle click on folder file opens a new tab (like in chrome firefox etc)
☐ 1 click to open a file, not 2
☐ no sound when click files
☐ should have at least 2 panes/windows within the app
☐ filetype / extension of file must be shown
☐ has ctrl t or something easy to open new tab
☐ should replace explorer
☐ all this should be default

url/file bar

☐ in url/file bar, able to click on file/file path to get there
☐ double click url bar to highlight url

clean minimal visual interface UI/design

☐ active tabs should be white, not grey
☐ url bar (file bar) should be white, not grey
☐ no useless 'status bars'

opens how it was

☐ should open to where you last were
☐ width of columns must be remembered as default

☐ should be recently updated, and regularly updated and made better

looking for the closet app that meets the above checklist

please do not recommend anything that doesnt fulfill this checklist, all these less-than-perfect apps are driving me crazy
pls feel free to reply with a helpful good software/site in a week or a year, no rush
i've a TON of things to do
quality > quantity
