    best file app: is there anyone here that uses a good file app?

    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 garbagety 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

    Tablacus Explorer with add ons. It's too advanced for most users.

    Needs certain addons to make it work as you desire.


    Single click activate
    Open instead
    Shell Execute Hook
    About remember
    Remember folder view

    amongst others.
