Windows 7: Where Is The File Manager (Explorer)

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

I just took a quick look at Directory Opus, but it appears to be missing the primary thing that I want...a dual pane view of the files. I have been looking for a good file manager for quite some time, but the closest that I found was Xplorer2, but I uninstalled it because of some bugs in it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

Win 7 explorer is fine for me. You can pretty much tweak it to do what you want. For example I used a free app called "the Ultimate Windows Tweaker" to add a few things to the explorer right click context menu. Things like "take ownership," "copy to" and "move to" etc. See screen shot below for some of the options the "tweaker provides:

Windows 7
"Old Style" Windows Explorer

[QUOTE=hybridfan;341641][quote=rerice;341564]If you like the " Old Style " Explorer try Directory Opus.

I have used it for years and it is Outstanding.

Do you know of anything that doesn't cost $69.00?
