My excursion into the netbook world has me looking fast and furious into utilities that work well under Windows XP and especially those that make good use of the lower resolution screen.  Today’s Freeware of the Moment does that by enabling a nice dual pane display while offering a pretty full-featured file manager.  Xplorer2 is a file manager utility that helps make a lot of the most frequent tasks easier to do with just a few button clicks.  The program is very customizable (and uses light resources) and there is a simple file previewer integrated into the program.  Note that this version is the lite version and is free for personal use.  There is a Pro version that will cost you some bucks but adds a lot of features should you find them worth the cost.

Xplorer2

  1. I’ve used xplorer2 and think it’s great. Have you tried FreeCommander? I prefer it slightly to xplorer2, and it’s totally free. It’s the first program that I loaded onto a new system.

    (I have no relationship to this project or its author other than I would be devastated if it’s development ended.)

  2. Been using xplorer2 for some time now. In my opinion, by far the best Explorer replacement out there that I’ve found – lightweight, quick, great features, especially so once one learns the keyboard shortcuts for it.

  3. I also love xplorer2, can’t live without it. I have the Pro version, to support the product and for the features.

  5. I have three licenses for the Pro version. Needless to say, I love it. It’s one of my top productivity apps.

    My favorite feature is the address bar. You can modify the path directly, with the changes reflected in the file panes. You can also specify wildcards, including complex ones like “*.xls,-*taxes*” (show all Excel files except those with “taxes” in the name). Ctrl+J toggles the wildcard filter. And each pane can have its own filter and state.

  6. I liked xplorer2, but I’m now hooked on CubicExplorer, which is still in development, but stable, and pretty feature rich, and usable.
