    two pane file explorer ?


    Back when I was using a Vista computer, I found a nice two pane file/windows explorer program.

    Does such a thing exist for Win 10 ?

    Thanks.

    It is a great program, I have used it for years for zip files, but didn't use the explorer part until @Cliff S pointed that out. It is very usefull

    I just use windows explorer, open two copies, select one - Widows Key + Left Arrow - select two Windows Key + Right Arrow - It's sorted.

    I also do a lot of my file handling in a single window - Open the source folder in the right Pane - Select files - Drag to Left pane the folder list will scroll up and down as required and a pause on a folder will open it's sub-folders

    Same here, I wheel click 2 instances off the taskbar, throw one to the left and one to the right.

    Well. I prefer two windows in one as I got to use a similar directory utility on my Amiga A3000, and I got to where I liked that. So I try to keep using such a thing as a 2 panel file manager.

    I've used Windows explorter, two copies, but I find it frustrating as I have selected the wrong pane and got told I couldn't copy as I was copying a file onto itself.

    I found it... 2xExplorer. No idea if it works on newer operating systems or not.
