    been using 'file explorer' getting sick of it need better


    absolutely
    - needs ctrl t to open new tab like in chrome and other things
    - a basic usable 'file explorer' needs to have this basic thing
    - needs to show what file type it is right in the 'file name'

    i think that's it for now
    other than that a clean minimalist ui preferred

    oh,
    absolutely
    - needs to remember what page you last closed on and open that
    - like many other things does

    greatly prefer, not needed: 1 click to open things like the web, not double click
    other basic things other apps software does preferred in case they come up in future

    Hi, you can install free Qttabbarby Quizo to add tabs into explorer - and a lot more.

    - needs to show what file type it is right in the 'file name'
    That's an option that's 'always' been there in Windows.

    - you can hide the ribbon, details and preview panes.

    Plenty of other file managers around- try Google, and find one that suits you.

    You might test Clover 3.0.406

    https://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/...ver-EJIE.shtml

    Don't get Clover 3.5.4 as it's bundled with adware.

    Ctrl+T for new tab.

    Personally I use something else but it probably too complicated for you.

    Freeware version xplorer2 lite (32bit version only but makes absolutely no difference if installed on 64bit machine)
