Those are just a couple of example layouts.
You can make it look like Windows Explorer (tree + file pane) or twin file panes.

You can copy/move files by dragging them to a tab label, or copy/move files between panes by using the copy and move buttons on the pane splitter.

  • Has the ability to show folder sizes in the File pane (click the KB icon).
  • Can generate MD5 hashes.
  • Has an excellent mass rename function.
  • Can preview various file types like text, audio and video.
  • Also has a stack of functions that I've never used.
The only problem I have experienced, is that sometimes the context menu stops working in FreeCommander.

Here is a link to the site.
FreeCommander - freeware file manager
