If there was a race for the first place in the world of Windows conductors, be sure that this file manager would become the unanimous champion. The huge popularity hasn't come from nothing. Easily set up, quickly copy, create and paste files and directories via hotkeys, and support a huge number of plugins. All these things directly or indirectly influenced the choice of ordinary users in favor of Total Commander (abbreviated as TC).

Ease of operation is achieved by using two screens. In this mode it is much easier to work with directories on different disks. Like copying, you can search by computer in the background (Alt+Shift+F7 keys). And chains of commands, when you can set several consecutive actions on one button, will greatly facilitate the life of system administrators.

Total Commander greatly simplifies file management tasks with its dual-screen interface, hotkeys, plugins, and built-in support for various file types and archives.

Other useful functions include working with different archives. In TC you can open and create RAR, 7-Zip and self-extracting EXE archives (view - via Ctrl+PageDown). WLX-enabled plug-ins allow you to recognize and play various files, including MP3, WAV and AVI. You can also download full utilities through plugins to run them directly through the TC shell.

Interaction with FTP is another nice feature of TC. To set up a new connection, it is sufficient to know the server address, login and password (if the connection is not anonymous). And files can be edited immediately on FTP.

The more hotkeys you learn, the more comfortable you will feel in TC. The speed of routine activities will increase by several times. If you don't like Standard Windows Explorer, we recommend you to pay attention to this file manager.

Total Commander is a great file manager for Windows. It is easy to use and intuitive, and has a lot of useful features. It also includes a powerful built-in search function which is very useful for quickly finding files. The two-pane view makes it easy to move and copy files between different folders. The file compare and synchronization functions are also very helpful. The built-in FTP client is quite efficient and I've had no problems using it. The program also supports integration with a variety of external programs which is great. The default interface can be a bit clunky, but you can customize it to your liking. All in all, Total Commander is a great file manager.

I've been using Total Commander for a couple of years and I'm really impressed with its capabilities. It's a great tool for managing files and folders, and the search feature is incredibly fast and efficient. The dual pane view is also incredibly useful for copying or moving files between directories. The customization options allow me to change the interface to suit my needs. The only downside is that some features require a registration fee.
