    My vote is to have a dual pane option a la xplorer2 and QDir. Makes copying/moving files so much easier and safer.

    By all means have tabs but the dual pane is the biggie for me.
    And then there is Directory Opus ($), the "Cadillac" of file managers (IMHO). The reason why these utilities exist is that they fulfill a real need in the Microsoft world.

    Long Path Names


    I forgot the other item on my "Wish List", long path name support (the default path name length is ridiculously short).

    Regarding panes and tabs, I use FreeCommander whenever I have to something more than basic file management.

    It has a handy mass rename tool too.

    Tab support would be great!
    This is 'Clover' running over top of Explorer but I'm sure MS could implement the idea in a much more refined fashion.

    I believe you are correct. Directory Opus has a long history (in computer years) and the only disadvantage I see (in comparison to others) is that it is a bit geeky and expensive but has been worth the $ spent over the years.

    Tabbed Browsing-File Explorer


    With Snapping, File Management, File Transfer and the like aside,
    this is my idea of an efficient Tabbed Browsing concept for File Explorer;
    -Tab Bar
    -Bookmarks/Bookmark Flyouts
    -Address Bar
    -Search Bar
    -expandable Quick Launch Bar
    -Tool Menu for enabling/disabling various options

    (just a rough idea but currently implemented on my desktop with 'Clover' except for the Quick Launch, I can't get rid of the Ribbon and preserve the Quick Launch at the same time!)

    Allot of people don't like tab browsing not exactly sure why they prefer numerous windows but I believe most of the grip is tab grouping ?
    Firefox/ Chrome have always defaulted to tab browsing it's just an easy way to see what's open usually the problem is when people use more than 8 or 9... tabs they get so small you really have no idea what is there

    Sounds like an interesting idea I guess if it looks the same as internet explorer it will be fine,
    If the tab size gets as large as the ribbon for touch screens it might be as bad as the ribbon has been received
    Which I never minded the ribbon but the shear size of the ribbon is way too big and can't be made any smaller,
    Compared to the little bitty quick access toolbar which can't be enlarged for no good reason :/

    So you open every URL in a new window, IE6-style?

    Much worse with separate windows.

    I suspect my PC would die, if I opened 200+ windows.

    Well with items combined on the taskbar you get a much better list in either open windows or tabs,
    But yes indeed a resource hog many windows would be in a 64 bit environment,
    I never saw how anyone can keep track or use than many open tabs or windows but it seems common to waste resources just for the sake of waste
    Then want to re-open all of it as was left open on next session or startup
