Can't unzip within this file explorer?!?

I installed this, checked it out and promptly uninstalled it.....I know it may be useful to some people, but it does not have any of the features I need. I do a LOT of work with graphics and photos....I need a file explorer that has the option to change the color (skin) of the UI background to a dark color....plus, there are some other problems....I do a lot of switching back and forth between folders and drives, this thing does not respond to the mouse "back" button, so I always have to constantly go up to the "back" arrow on the explorer window, windows explorer DOES respond to the mouse back button....this may sound like a very minor thing, but when you deal with the huge number of files I do everyday, moving, copying, deleting etc., it is a major thing.....Another thing I don't like is that it does not support Windows Active View on folders....with this thing, all folders just look like generic empty folders like on old versions of windows....with active view, you can always see if a folder is empty or if it has something in it....I know it's a minor detail but it's definitely nice to have.

As a PAiD licensed owner of multiple XYplorer licenses, as well as a few other File Managers such as Directory Opus, xplorer², etc.

I'd like to see these improvements to XYplorer:

1. a better File Viewer,

2. a customizable right-click context menu (move existing items up or down, FOR EXAMPLE: all the "New ..." bunched together, and, possibly add New Rich Text, New Open Document, etc)

3. I would like to create a ToolBar Button that allows me to TEST or Test & Extract with a single click: Zip or RAR or other achived files, but I haven't got a clue when it comes to the coding stuff. Where do I go to find out how to do this coding?

FiNALLY I only ever use a Single Pane BUT I would really like to see an option for MULTi-ROWs of Tabs


I suppose as there is only 5 minutes to go before the Offer Expires the likely hood of getting any replies is unlikely, so MANY THANKS for a good Windows File Manager

I prefer Freecommander to this this because of the ease, customization, and dual-tree windows. It's worth learning and I use it more than Windows Explorer. www.freecommander.com

I use Q-Dir however when I am copying to multiple drives. It's easier for that task.

I have been using XYplorer since 2012 when I first saw it here on GAOTD. I must have missed the 2014 offering so I was still using version 11.9 --- until today. A lifetime license for XYplorer has been on my Christmas list for 2015, so I was glad to get the updated version to see ahead of time what I will be getting with the new version. As before, I love it. It has what Windows Explorer should have in it.

Thank you, to GAOTD and to Donald Lessau for creating a great product!

Excellent software, very responsive developer, tons of customization available. If you're still using Windows Explorer, you really should give this a try - nothing whatsoever to lose, and it has a very small installed footprint.

I upgraded from the last giveaway of this.

Thank you.

I've used XYplorer but have got to say that Directory Opus is the kingpin of file managers. Unfortunately, Directory Opus is not free. So if you want a freebie file manager that is pretty darned good -- and a lot better than Microsoft's File Explorer -- grab this giveaway today. You might also want to try the free 30-day fully functional trial of Directory Opus -- the only danger is that you probably won't want to go back to XYplorer or any other file manager.

I've been using XYplorer for about 4 years. There's not a lot I can say that hasn't already been said by devoted users and new fans, except I am happy with XYplorer and I never plan on replacing it.

When I began using this program, I started a forum topic here detailing my experience. It is quite extensive. So, if you really want to know what I (and others) think (and my discovery experience), read my posts.

As the program is free right now, do yourself a favor and get it. If you don't like it, no harm, no foul!

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."

Had a problem with a different window explorer and rendered windows explorer problematic. Since then stay away until now. Will give it a try after the info on it's web site and all the glowing reviews. Thanks Giveaway of the day and XYplorer Pro 15.90

Will this mess with the "Windows key + E" shortcut to open Windows Explorer? I use that shortcut extensively. I have Q-Dir on my computer, which does not replace Windows Explorer, but supplements it, and I have tried various replacements like this one, but they have caused all future attempts to use that shortcut to crash Windows Explorer, and I have had to restore a backup to repair that damage.

It is nice that one can see other devices like cellphones and tablets, but that is not enough. It would be great if one could not only view but to be able to work with these other devices, ie make folders, copy to the PC, and other functions along this line.

The only advantage of XYplorer over Windows Explorer is that you have all Windows options at hand, other than that I see nothing new, just cosmetics. As a matter of fact, the very first option I tried to find was tile vertically side-by-side view and couldn't find it.
There are many free Explorer replacements as CubicExplorer, Explorer++, Xplorer2, NexusFile, Q-Dir that are all free and much more useful.
Uninstalled.

I've been using XYplorer since the last giveaway (14.4) and I like it above all the other explorer replacements, namely for it's stability, customisable UI, and responsiveness. It's pretty much always running on my secondary monitor, which is rotated 90 degrees.

Everyone should install this and spend some time configuring all the options to make it their own.

I've been using this for a few years now, and would not want to be without it. I have several hard drives and it very easily searches them all to find whatever I am looking for. Windows search was just too frustrating, so I found this one and never look back. Grab this one while you can. It's a keeper.

@Donald Lessau. Thank you for your response. Perhaps I didn't explain very well. From the screen print on the GOTD page it looks as if when an individual image is highlighted it is previewed at a higher resolution in a window on the left. I have been unable to reproduce this. All I see are the thumbnails of the images in that folder. If I highlight an image, move the mouse over it and hold down left click I get a larger floating image superimposed on top of the others. However if I press F11 while the image is highlighted the screen is black except for the sole fixed image displayed in the centre of the screen. How can I get that image to appear in the left hand window? I would appreciate it very much if you could explain which setting are requied to achieve that.

Reply   |   Comment by Bill  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

F11: What you describe sounds like the full screen preview. When the full screen preview is on, press F12 to toggle back to the normal floating preview. You can then move/size the window to the desired position and size.

The giveway is only semi-portable, because it writes in %AppData%. But you can change that quite easily. In de programme folder you will see Startup.ini with the following content:

[Appdata]
Path=%appdata%\XYplorer

I changed that into

[Appdata]
Path=.\Data\

(the name of the subfolder is my choice). Now you have a real portable.

And it is official:
"The "Lifetime License Pro" entitles one person to use the full version of XYplorer on any number of devices for an unlimited time."

I've tried most of the popular file managers over the years and XYplorer is hands down the best one! I purchased the lifetime license to access all the updates. One feature that I like the most is the scripts capability which allows me to add custom functionality that now I can no longer want to live without.

Despite all of the great features and benefits, I really wish the author would add a simple option to remember the locked folder settings. Every time the program is restarted, it forgets all of the locked folders.

In summary, this program is highly recommended for users who are looking for powerful scripting capability which puts XYplorer on a whole level above the other file managers.

Installed easily w/o drama on Win 7 64U.

This is a great file manager. It addresses the vast shortcomings of the later versions of Explorer - a baffling crippling from the old File Manager. I suspect the bozo who thinks the ribbon in Office is a good idea was put in charge of the current MSFT file manager version.

This has moved in a few minutes' use from a trial to my default file manager. It's that good.

Another thing that it does and many file exporting softwares do not do (or do partly) is the ability to save file list/searches etc in plain text/csv etc. Many file list exporting softwares are either crippled (shareware) or old. The ability to save as CSV allows you to load it in excel and do whatever you want with it. Total bliss!

@Alex - Like Jorge I found that I could not install unless AVG was deactivated then installation went flawlessly. Why, Oh why, can't AVG pop up a message instead of keeping shtum. The one time when a pop up really would be appreciated!!

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am unable to show a "reduced" preview in a right hand panel as per the GOTD page. A left click on an image does produce a larger version of it but it is a free floating image and not anchored in a right hand side panel.
