Unreal Commander is a continuation of the best traditions of file managers such as Norton Commander, FAR and Total Commander. The Unreal Commander functionality is of course closer to the latter.

The program's interface consists of a traditional for file managers division into two panels, which makes it very convenient to work with files, copy and move from directory to directory. Under the main menu is a customizable toolbar, where you can put the most frequently used commands or programs. Below are the disc selection buttons for each panel. At the very bottom of the main Unreal Commander window there is a command line and fast file and directory buttons attached to the F3-F8 function keys.

In addition to the basic functions of the file manager in the program there is a built-in FTP-client, a utility for viewing graphics files, audio and video players, archiver with support for ZIP, RAR, ACE, CAB, JAR, TAR, LHA and much more. With support for Total Commander plug-ins (WLX, WCX and WDX), Unreal Commander functionality can be significantly expanded.

The program is completely free, but from time to time it is necessary to update the license key. You can do this on the official website or through the "License management" item in the "Help" menu.

Unreal Commander is a good file management software. It's features like batch renaming, advanced search, folder synchronization and a lot more actually makes it better than the original Windows file manager. The best part about this file manager is that it comes with an in-built FTP which makes connecting to different servers and PCs a lot more easier. The only limitation which I found here was the UI which could have been slightly more attractive and catchy. However, it's pros overcomes its con by a big margin, so I would definitely recommend it.
