What are some of your most missed removed/scrapped features from past Windows versions?

    "Hello Mike, No 4 is already available, isn't it.?"

    No 6, Total Commander is my choice. Once upon a time in win 3.xx there was just fine dual pane file manager, why did they kill it is beyond me.


    No. 4 - Yes, I guess it is, though I didn't know that when I first started trying to use Windows 8.
    I thought that I didn't have a task bar unless I went to the desktop.

    So I installed Modern Mix which made the task bar visible in the normal manner.

    Now I don't use any apps so it doesn't come into play for me anyway.

    No. 6 - I do open 2 File Explorer Windows and use Snap to configure them into a side by side view.

    I'd just like to have this as an automatic option, just a click to have it configure into a side by side view showing 2 drives.

    Then have it able to select the drive in each window by selecting the drive you want at the top.
    I have 4 hard drives plus 2 removable media drives, plus 3 external hard drives so it would make things a lot easier for me.

    My computer did come with a real Widows 8 install disk, (it also came with a restore flash drive that returns it to the original tweaked setup) so I guess it depends on who you get your computer from.

    If you have an allergy to paying for SW: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/deta...commander.html is almost a twin to TC but free.
    This one is similar: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/deta...commander.html
    Or if you like more familiar look of 2 explorers:http://wde.codeplex.com/
    Or http://www.zabkat.com/x2lite.htm

    Hi

    I used to use Free Commander back in Windows 7.
    I just installed it in Windows 8, we'll see how it works.

    I find FreeCommander to be very useful.

    For routine operations I use Windows Explorer.
    However if I need to have multiple folders open I use FreeCommander (e.g. video editing).
    The mass rename tool also receives regular workouts.
