XYplorer with Tabs, Mini Tree, Tree Path Tracing, Breadcrumb Bar, captionless thumbnails with size overlay, and visible sort headers. Floating Preview to the right.

It’s Portable

XYplorer is a portable file manager. It doesn’t require any installation, stores all configuration data in the application data folder, and running it doesn’t change your system or registry. Take it with you and start it from a USB stick. File management to go.

It’s Tabbed

Tabs let you switch between folders most easily. Drag them around, hide them, lock them, name them, or drop files onto them. The tabs remember their configuration individually and across sessions. On top of this you get tabsets and dual pane.

It’s Functional

XYplorer has been designed to make you faster. Numerous usability enhancements in an attractive interface help to streamline your workflow and increase your efficiency. You will definitely save a lot of time.

It’s Scriptable

Yes, you can program this app. Individual solutions for individual tasks. No plugins needed, scripts run out-of-the-box. Even beginners can benefit from this feature since many ready-to-use scripts are available in the forum.

It’s Customizable

You can fine-tune the app to look and behave exactly as you want it. This ranges from fonts and colors to custom toolbar buttons and even file icons and program associations. And every bit of it is fully portable.

It’s Responsive

Your customer voice is listened to and taken seriously, most of the time you get instant feedback, and your wish might actually get implemented sooner than you’d think.
