What exactly do the last two posts in this thread have to do with XY?

For those who need a simple and free file manager that offers a double tree structure, I recommend QDir

Or Tablacus Explorer. Both are basic file managers, like XY used to be before it became bloated.

Hmmmm,

even in it's most recent version one can configure XY as simple as one wishes. :?:
Voluntarily I would never sacrifice the power of XY. One click, and all you need is closed at hand ...

My cry: my customers all have turned to disallow running any software which isn't on their white list. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

But I won't give up to ask them to allow XY (though my hopes are low.)

CRYYYYY.

Short version: it's not white-listed.

Longer version: with the introduction of Windows 10 (the OS is NOT to blame for it ...) the corporate security has employed a strict-as-it-can-be policy. Everything is forbidden. If there is a need, the management has to ask for - and has to pay for the initial security checks, of course. On the individual level (that's me) it sounds bogus, but at the corporate level it sounds reasonable (it's a Central Bank in Germany).

Tough, yes.

Everything is forbidden. :biggrin: I like that. It's a mantra.

It's Germany ... Truth is, it's the mindset of a certain crowd thinking to represent the people living here. In other words, our daily business. :x

Why use an outdated version of XYplorer that isn't bloated, when there are other current file managers that aren't bloated?

You started this thread about File Managers Don.

...But maybe some of you use other file managers for specific tasks (or maybe for most tasks, and XYplorer just for specific tasks). That would be interesting to know. Not to copy those features. I think it's totally okay and normal to use different file managers side by side, why not?! And I'm not planning to build a swiss-army-monster. Just being curious.
Now, when you get negative comments about XY, you don't like it.
The truth hurts.
You're trapped in an archaic programming language, a BEGINNERS language at that.
Fix1, Fix2, Fix3... how many times have I seen that in your posts?
Might have fixed it in the next version...
What way is that to program?

What if the programmers of the da Vinci Surgical System had that approach (it was used for my heart surgery - less than two days after major surgery, I was walking unaided).
