XFile – Retro File Manager that Explores PC Files and Folders

XFile is a retro file manager that explores your PC’s files and folders with this old-style XTree Gold clone. You can’t drag with the mouse to select several files, for instance. Holding down Ctrl or Shift to select multiple files doesn’t work, either. And there are no point right-clicking files to see what you can do with them, because context menus aren’t supported here.

XFile doesn’t automatically read the contents of a folder as you click on it, either (you’ll need to double-click). There are no in-line file previews. And while you can open a window to display thumbnails of the images in a folder, you then have to close that before you can switch back to the file manager.

XTree, is really all about providing quick and easy keyboard shortcuts to common file management tasks. In a click or two you could, say, select all the TXT files in the current folder, copy or move them elsewhere, open a file, view or set its file attributes and more.

There’s also useful integration with other features of your system. Open the Web menu, say, and you can launch your browser, email client, FTP program or more in a keypress, while Ping, Traceroute and IPConfig are just a hotkey away.
