XYplorer Review

Fernando Ortega
Portable tabbed file manager for Windows with strong file search and preview
A review of XYplorer by Fernando Ortega

Say 'good bye' to the not-so-versatile functions offered by Microsoft in its Windows Explorer and 'hello' to a very power file manager called XYplorer.

With XYplorer, users are given some very advanced options to manage and maintain their files and folders. Users can view lists, with details or simply as thumbnails with less text and more graphics. Users are given the ability to use the advanced searching function provided by XYplorer and files can been colour-coded.

As individual files, users can add comments and tags about them and files can also be added to a favourites list.

XYplorer supports automated tasks and users with experience can create these tasks (or macros) by using XYplorer's very own custom scripting language which isn't too hard to get the hang of. Getting started with scripting isn't too hard once you've given the help files a read.

This file manager is perfect for both novice and intermediate users as the scripting ability and the very well thought-out layout is both powerful and nicely designed.

XYplorer features and highlights:
  • Completely portable, no installation required
  • Tabbed interface
  • Optional dial pane mode
  • Powerful and fast file searching
  • Queued file operations
  • Custom copy with verification
  • Batch rename functionality
  • Tag-based file management
  • Difference mouse functionality
  • Multi-level history (Redo and Undo)
  • Wipe files from file system permanently
