When you really think about it, file management in Windows hasn't really changed all that much since the olden days of Windows 3.1. But the way that we use our computers, coupled with the explosion in the number of files that we now store, has made dealing with file management an onerous, almost painful task! Thank goodness XYplorer is here to inject some balance, order, and fun to file management!

XYplorer is the last file manager you'll ever need to install! With XYplorer, you get multiple tabs to jump quickly between folders, a powerful search function, a preview feature that should have been part of Windows years ago, and a highly customizable and intuitive interface. Even better, XYplorer offers this to you in a very fast, very light application that doesn't require any installation or make any system or registry changes. Intrigued? Read on.

If you're a fan of tabbed browsing, you already know how to work the tabs in XYplorer! Click between folders, rename them, reposition them, and drag and drop files onto them -- a whole lot easier than using Windows Explorer, that's for sure. You can even create a tab dedicated to a search filter! The Dual Pane makes it easy to move and copy stuff between folders, plus there's Manual Sorting to enable you to view files exactly as you like. And when you quit XYplorer and come back later, your tab configurations are there waiting for you!

Combine this extraordinary functionality with intuitive Tree, List, and Mini-Tree views, and you're all set with XYplorer. The Mini-Tree contains a history of files and folders that you've actually used, so it's easy to jump to something you've been working on. Ever wanted to create a magic button to launch files in your app of choice? Custom Toolbar buttons makes that happen! You can color code your files, tag files, highlight and bold favorite folders, or use the Catalog function to combine folders and items from all over your hard drive, LAN, and the Internet under a single heading. There's even support for file names longer than 260 characters, an impossibility in Windows! Plus, aliases make typing long directory structures into the address bar a thing of the past!

The robust features just keep on coming with XYplorer! Imagine one-click previews of any of your media files, plus multiple (up to 100) level undo/redo for your file operations that persists from session to session. An advanced Recycle Bin that leaves your default Windows Bin in the dust! You can even enable queuing in XYplorer and stack file operation jobs without even waiting for the first few to finish, then continue working as your jobs complete in the background!

XYplorer also offers Select Special, which lets you modify selections in one pane based on items in the other pane, synchronous scrolling and sorting of both panes, the ability to bring back accidentally erased selections, item name editing, and a quick way to bump selected files up in the folder hierarchy!

ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS!!! XYplorer includes a powerful Floating Preview feature. Essentially a new preview pane separate from the main window, Floating Preview supports Mouse Down Blow Up and the transparency grid for transparent images. It's one of the features customers have requested most!

Check out a sampling of what else is new in XYplorer v17.40:

  • Content Search - Now multi-field search supports content. So you can search for files that contain "Country" OR "Western".
  • Self Update - Finally XYplorer can update itself. Simply click "Check for Updates" and you are offered to download and install the update right away if there is one. (Pro Edition Only)
  • Audio Tags - Now scripting supports reading and writing ID3 tags. (Pro Edition Only)
  • Multilingual Support - Added support for Serbian.

Nelson Carvalho The best File manager.
This is a tool of those you buy and do not regret. I bought it a few years ago and I can testify that you have significant productivity gain.
Lots of helpful features. Excellent support. In constant improvement.
Do not miss this offer.

HBOY So whats the difference between XYplorer and Xplorer2. Just purchased Xplorer2 a week or so from here?
Dec 23 2016 at 5:01am Copy Link
Kelly Hamblin There simply is not a better file manager than this one. I tried XYplorer years ago when I was looking for a decent file manager. I wanted it badly, but couldn't afford the price. In 2012, I found it on sale here at Bits and grabbed the lifetime license. Best software purchase I ever made.

Any file manager I use gets a good workout. I spend lots of time every day "managing" files. XYplorer makes it easy for me to find things, change things, view things, add information about files and folders. After all this time, I still haven't made use of, or even discovered, all the features of this application. Which brings me to another thing I want to mention — more of a thank you to Donald Lessau — unless things have changed, XYplorer comes with a great help file that I don't have to open a browser or a pdf file to read.

@HBOY - I also have a license for xplorer2, which is another very good file manager, but answering your question would take (me) hours even if I had the expertise to do so. I can only say that I use xplorer2 once in a while, but I use XYplorer every day. There is always a lot of personal preference involved when choosing between applications.

Doug Atkinson @HBOY - I own both and use them both. Xplorer2, XYPlorer and Directory Opus are all great programs and you'll probably like best the one you use the most. I've used Xplorer2 the longest, so I am quite used to it and use the search function all the time, and like the quickview feature. Xplorer2 had an issue in an earlier version with displaying certain linked images so I used XYplorer when doing those operations. For a lifetime license, this is a great price, so if you are a utlility fanatic like I am, they're both worth having!

Wearsie Jackson Does anyone have any insight on the differences between this software and PowerDesk Pro 9 (also offered here at BDJ)?

Stephen Stimac I downloaded the Trial version to test it out. My first attempts to find a file resulted with issues. Please respond:

1. I map my NAS box as a network mapped drive on my computer. Only one of the two mapped drives appear in the list of drives.

2. I don't see how to increase my file search to all my mapped drives (including the NAS box). It only searches my boot drive (Drive: C). It doesn't even search my 2nd SSD (Drive: F) or my data drive (Drive: D).

garrett james Powerdesk pro is buggy and causes crashes and rarely updates to new versions. Xyplorer lifetime is the best deal for any of the power explorer programs available and ranks easily with Directory Opus $90 single pc and x2plorer [which i also love]. I began first using powerdesk some ten years ago for the dual pane feature, but found xy and x2 to simply be more robust and not break.

Steven Avery Lets not forget Total Commander. I have lifetime licenses to XYPlorer and TC. Both are great deals. I use TC more, but that could change tomorrow, and every program can have a little issue here and there. The XYPlorer developer was very responsive on Donationcoder when I pointed out a problem in copying files that begin with a blank in the name.

Depending on finances, I would suggest everyone try to have TC and/or XYPlorer in their life-time arsenal. Both have been faithful in their licenses. (No new names, no Premium Ultimate editions after the license is bought.)

This is an unusual area in that four different programs have all kept a stellar reputation. (Add xplorer2 and DOpus.).

You really cannot beat a lifetime license when it comes in under $50 and the program has a proven track record of many years. You get a lifetime license now, and you smile in 2018-2020 when there is no upgrade fee.

Charles User XYplorer is a great filemanager, but it lacks a folder/filesync-feature. It's a pity. I still have to use a 3rd party-tool because of this. :(

Donald Lessau Sync is the next big feature on my list. :)

yabatopia In older comments, there was some discussion about Listary integration. How do the current versions of Listary and XYplorer get along?

John User It's funny, I purchased xyplorer2 a few years ago through this site and just thought it was later version of xyplorer. Honestly, I have been very happy with xyplorer2 and looking at the screenshots of xyplorer they seem to be very similar. I wish I knew what the differences between the two were (and why you might need both) to justify purchasing another lifetime license.

M User Highly recommended software/deal !!

Let me tell you, I have them 'all' : Directory Opus, Total Commander, XYplorer Pro, MultiCommander, Double Commander, xplorer², FreeCommander, Q-Dir, FolderViewer, ...

Directory Opus (Professional + FTP Advanced and USB-plugin) is my favorite (as the past file manager on earth IMO - at this time), but XYplorer is (together with Total Commander) absolutely number 2!

Of course, If you use, let's say TC for 20 years, then you will prefer Total Commander over DOpus or XYplorer ... as TC is your daily workflow to go.

XYplorer is really great and this is a great deal! Lifetime, for all your own PC's. It's a bargain!! And, really, I follow the beta development every day at

Development-cycle is great! After a official release, sometimes a few days 'rest', an then again every day a new beta. Thanks Donald Lessau!

I would like to see a litlle improvement in the new 'auto'-update in XYplorer. Something like the update mechanism in Display Fusion, or EMDB (a movie database). Mean, auto-update faster or with a build-in progress bar for 'the eye-candy' :D)

Another thing for improvement out of the box: with DOpus, when you click a mp4 movie in the lister you can see the movie in the preview-pane. With XYplorer is stays ... black ;)

Happy to see that sync is on the roadmap Donald! Keep up the very, very good and hard work! As I said: HIGHLY recommended (Lifetime licence for all your own PC's + portable installs!!!)

jim User Is there seriously still no 64 bit version?
Dec 25 2016 at 8:58am Copy Link
John User So, I downloaded the trial version and have been using it the last couple of days instead of xplorer2 which I have been using for several years. Typically there were things I like about both. I decided to give the benefit of the doubt to XYplorer because I have not been using it that much and shelled out the $39.95 for the lifetime license.

So now I have two pretty good Explorer replacements. Thank you for the opportunity to try the software before buying and for the very nice discount!

Merry Christmas

Thomas K Merry Christmas to all !!!

Reading all the reviews I can only agree - the lifetime licence for XYplorer is great deal !
I have now been using it for 1-2 years and can really say it is one of the best managers out there. One thing I really love the most however is the great support. New features every 2-3 weeks and continual checks on what to improve - outstanding.

SO if you do not have it yet go and grab your licence !

Regards from germany

P.S: I paid for my licence and will not get a free copy / discount for being truthfull and positive :-)

HBOY Must say I was disappointed. Thought I would try it, even though I purchased Xplorere2 from here not long ago. After installing, it crashed twice while I was trying it out. I opened the preview pane just as I had in Xplorer2. Neither will preview PDF files,however XYplorer crashed after clicking on the second PDF file every time where as Xplorer2 would not crash.

Javier Gil Hboy: xplorer2 does show Pdf previews, I've been using it for years and I can confirm that xyplorer has that feature as well. (it normally depends on which Pdf viewer you have installed on your computer)
Both are great programs. Although I have a license for xplorer2, I bought xy yesterday. I think the lifetime license is a great deal and I love the labels feature, which is very useful to me. Support seems really good and the software is updated regularly.
You can't go wrong with either. I'm sure Donald will sort out your issues with xyplorer crashing. (never happened to me)
I did try optus and commander. Couldn't stand either of them to be honest.

Peter Schaeffer This is a quite good product. I have only purchased a small number of software products for my work. This is one of them. Years ago, the Explorer built into Windows was good enough. Sadly, Microsoft removed the Explorer than worked, and replaced it with a piece of dumbed-down junk. At that point I switched to XYplorer and have not looked back. XYplorer works rather well and is stable across many releases of Windows (7, 8, 10). This is a non-trivial virtue given that many versions of Windows are commonly in use these days.

XYplorer has many important features. Of course all of the views are important. However, file search (many kinds) is crucial. The previews come in handy more often that you might think.

I usually don't comment on apps as long as they do what they are meant for, unless I detect dishonesty or too much greed. Yet, I couldn't skip XYplorer. I thought the price was steep though (I am obviously interested in the pro version deal), but it made me save hours in minutes and, once I understood, seconds, especially the filter and the flatten folder functions, which just took a few minutes to learn with the excellent help page and online description. After just a few days on the trial version, I just got infatuated. Ha! Ha!
I guess I will discover other useful tools among the incredible amount the program provides (300+). A really great app I should have discovered years before, since I often work with hundreds of folders and thousands of files. I guess I was too busy working on those, lost in the forest, but no more! That is what I call a good buy.

Thank you Donald Lessau for your great work and transparent offer for several machines.
N.B. I don't know nor work for him; I'm just very glad with his creation. I just went directly to his page to buy the app, because there was no discount here at the time. Sorry to bother you with my rambling.
N.B.2 I wrote this for nothing: just see his reviews page: and I just noticed the 800 older comments here. That is a star program that should have a niche by itself. Could it be a new category for program collectors? Bye!
