Windows Explorer seems to suit your needs when you first start using it, but after a while you begin to wonder if there's a better alternative to having all of those open folder windows all over your desktop.

XYplorer is a game changer.

XYplorer is a file manager for Windows that offers a multi-tabbed interface, powerful file search abilities, flexible file preview capability, and the ability to automate frequently recurring file management tasks. And, unlike those heavy-footprint Microsoft implementations, XYplorer is fully portable - it doesn't require installation, and makes no changes to your Windows registry! You can even run it off of a USB flash drive!

Let's talk about tabs. You use them all the time in your web browsing, so why not use them for file management too? Because until now, you couldn't, that's why!

XYplorer keeps all of your open folders conveniently arranged in tabs, and even remembers open tabs between sessions. Keep your favorite files and folders color coded in the Favorites panel. Rename batches of files with a single click. View images as thumbnails and easily reveal all details about an MP3 file with a simple mouseover. Perform highly sophisticated searches using Boolean logic and regular expressions.

And how many times have you wanted to save and print out the contents of a Windows folder? With XYplorer, you can export extended file information to an Excel spreadsheet!

XYplorer does not rest on its laurels, and is constantly being updated. The latest and greatest version features a new Address Bar Deluxe that rocks Unicode support, autocomplete for paths and files, and tab navigation through open items. Combined with even faster performance, color coding for file types, and improved scripting, there's no better time than the present to dive into XYplorer!

Jon Young Is the XYplorer lifetime license also get 51% off?

El Don No, this offer is for the standard license.

Luc Larsen This is a great file manager. But try it before buying.
It does not have a dual pane option (yet?) - the type of user interface most people expect from a file manager.
Nov 18 2008 at 4:22am Copy Link
El Don Dual pane is in fact planned for version 8.00, which is fully covered by the license offered here (it includes all upgrades up to and including 8.70).

Stop Spam Could you please consider offering a discount for the lifetime license also?

Is there a renewal policy for lifetime licenses also? Or must we pay for the full standard license again after 8.70)
Nov 18 2008 at 2:51pm Copy Link
Donald Lessau The lifetime license is already a huge discount in itself. I don't plan to offer a discount on top of this.

The standard license does never expire, and includes upgrades up to 8.70. If you want to use 8.80 you indeed need to purchase another standard license.

Albert M Does the standard licesne include advanced features like scripting?
Nov 19 2008 at 9:39pm Copy Link
Donald Lessau Yes, the Standard License covers all features! The only difference to the Lifetime License is the number of free future upgrades. The Standard License gives you 9 free upgrades, the Lifetime License unlimited free upgrades.

Jose Luis Is multilanguage support available (officially or unofficially) or going to be available in a near future?

Donald Lessau The "Tips of the Day" support any language (user-provided). Interface, help file, xywiki, and web site currently support only English, and it will probably stay at that for the near future.

Scott User Fantastic! I downloaded the trial version and played with it for 15 minutes. Then I knew, this was the File Management tool I have been looking for. There is going to be a bit of a learning curve as this program has so many useful features. Awesome deal, thanks!
Nov 23 2008 at 6:42pm Copy Link
B Adams Such a deal! :)

I use XYPlorer pretty much every day. I adore it's search feature, by the way - can't live without it anymore.

But anyway: XYPlorer saved my sanity when I moved from XP to Vista. I wrote my friends that I felt like I had found an old friend to help guide me in a very strange new world that I was a bit lost in.

I have Dopus, I have well, lots of Explorer replacement programs, but I like and use XYPlorer. And the developer is AWESOME to work with...along with all the rest of the users over at his forum. I wish all developers were like him. He is a pleasure to witness! Check out his group of likewise adoring followers. PS: I know nothing about Script. I manage to use XYPlorer for all the things I do. Guess I am missing lots of other uses... Not even sure what scripting is used for. Is that anything like macros?? doh.
Nov 23 2008 at 8:01pm Copy Link
Ste Fan Not even sure what scripting is used for.
With scripting you can automate your work by doing several things with one click. And you can build your own commands.
You don't have to wait till the developer will do that for you.
Or you can call other applications or command line utilities that do something with files you have selected. See, If you have to do every day the same, you can wrote an script that does this for you. Writing an script is easy, there is an help file and an forum with many advanced users to aid you.
One could call this 'macro' too, but with much more power if you need them. If not, you can do simple things at easy with a few commands only.
For example build your own pop-up menu ;-)
And XYplorer is fully portable, no Registry mess, all settings are in program folder (or there where YOU like it to be)
Yes! There is no DualPanel feature (one folder on the left, one on the right) right now.
But WinExplorer has no DP either and this last for the most of the Windows users.
But the power of having an dual view will come!... and with this cheep license for $15 you will be allowed to use this feature once it will be available ;-)
At no extra cost.
I go to get my license now! (now question at that discount!)
Even if i would need to use it once in an month only,
the time it saves me is more worth then $15!

Ste Fan And with EURO it's even 10 _ only.

Wenn Sie in EURO bezahlen sind es sogar nur 10 Euro statt 15 Dollar.

XYplorer ist ein Werkzeug um seine Datei effektiv zu verwalten.
Dies kann man etwas umständlicher auch mit dem WindowsExplorer erledigen, jedoch bietet XY viel mehr Möglichkeiten um sich die Arbeit zu erleichtern.
- XYplorer muss nicht installiert werden, somit ist diese Anwendung voll portable und kann auf einem USB-Stick mitgenommen werden.
- XY bietet TABs wie z.B. der neue InternetExplorer oder Firefox.
Somit kann man mehrere Ordner gleichzeitig geöffnet haben und schnell hin-und her wechseln.
- eine Zwei-Fenster Ansicht (ein Ordner links, einer rechts) ist für später geplant, diese Lizenz wird auch für diese Version (8.0 ?) gültig sein.
- Im übrigen gilt diese Lizenz für die Version 7.80 bis zu 8.70
und beinhaltet die uneingeschränkte Vollversion von XYplorer
welche Sie für immer benutzen können, sie läuft nie ab.
(Die "Lifetime Lizenz" im Gegensatz gilt für ALLE zukünftigen Versionen, auch für 8.80 u.s.w.)

- XY beinhaltet eine sehr gute Datei Suchfunktion.
- Ein Renamer zum umbenennen vieler Dateien auf einen Schlag ist auch dabei.
- Sie können sich prima Bilder und Text in einer Vorschau ansehen.
- Sie können sich eigene Kommandos anlegen um Ihren Arbeitsablauf zu beschleunigen.
- Für komplexe Aktionen können Sie eine umfangreiche Skriptsprache einsetzen oder sich im Forum beraten lassen.
- Die Dateiansicht kann gefiltert werden, sodass Sie nur dass sehen was Ihnen wichtig ist.

Nebenbei bemerkt, ausgesprochen wird 'XYplorer' wie
"XY-plorer" (EksWai-plorer) oder "Zaiplorer", ganz wie Sie möchten.

Rich Lang I assume we can assign a color to folders?

What about an icon?

Most importantly, to me, is the dual pane view for drag and drop. When (what date, not what version) will that be available?

Stephen Cohen Can the search engine in XYPlorer search for text in .zip and .mht files?
Thank you!
Nov 24 2008 at 2:31am Copy Link
Donald Lessau @Rich Lang:

Assign a color to folders: Yes.

Folder Icon: Using scripting you can automate the standard way using desktop.ini pointing to an icon.

Dual Pane: I would not recommend to make a purchase based on a promised future feature. You really should download the trial and see if it works for you as it is now. That said, I would be surprised if XY wouldn't have dual pane by March 09.

Search for text in .zip and .mht files: A binary search yes, but not a search in the uncompressed contents.
XYplorer - Nov 24 2008 at 5:15am Copy Link
Rich Lang I just ordered. Looks very useful. Lots of ways to mark folders.

There is one need I forgot to ask about. I need to be able to use this on my desktop when at home and my laptop when I travel. I assume I can do this with the copy I purchased?

Is there a way to transfer the file attributes I have built on my desktop to my laptop?

Nov 24 2008 at 6:55am Copy Link
Donald Lessau @Rich Lang:

The license is good for any number of machines. It's per user.

The "Backup (To)" operations will copy files with all attributes. Please consult the user forum for further questions.

Stephen Cohen I asked if XYplorer could search for text in .zip and .mht files.

Donald Lessau (XYplorer Developer) replied,

"Search for text in .zip and .mht files: A binary search yes, but not a search in the uncompressed contents."

I don't know what this means. A binary search, but not a text search? And no search in UNcompressed files?
Nov 24 2008 at 9:01am Copy Link
STE Fan See, an archive is an binary.
Now It depends how the text files are stored in that archives
because it's the nature of archives to remove redundant info
temporally and get them back later by un-packing.

But Files can also be archived without reducing the size
and so you can search this archive and find something.
Are the archive not only used for collecting files
but for size reducing also.... you will find less results.

I think Don want to say that searching by temporally
unpacking archives and search in that unpackt (temp)
files is not supporting (right now?)

Maybe you could suggest this feature at the forum?

Nov 24 2008 at 9:20am Copy Link
Donald Lessau I meant: XYplorer will search any file's contents (binary or text) for any binary or textual data. But it will not first decompress zip archives and then search the decompressed contents.

STE Fan Thanks for that great deal !
The soft works wonderful !
I order even for the full price an second license right now.
That soft is fully worth this.
