Classic file managers use two panels, but this is always not enough – you have to open several copies of the program or constantly switch between bookmarks. Q-Dir offers to solve the problem by simply doubling the number of panels. This file manager is relatively simple, but it has enough functions to work effectively. In addition, Q-Dir is free, compact, can be launched from portable drives.
Q-Dir is actually the shell for Windows Explorer with a lot of new features and settings. Accordingly, there are all traditional modes of file representation (including tree view), FTP servers, ZIP and CAB archives are supported. In the panels you can open tabs, there are various ways of placing 2-4 panels on the screen. Added quick access to frequently used folders, there is color filtering by file types and highlighting selected.
The peculiarity of the regular Windows Explorer is that it can be a convenient shell for working with files, which will be understandable to users-beginners. Over time, when a novice ceases to be a novice and seeks development of his computer skills, only third-party file managers can satisfy this need. As a rule, these are programs that inherited from MS DOS a two-window organization of displaying the file system, with some add-ons in the form of a program menu and a launch pad for various services, commands and applications. Double Commander, Total Commander, Multi Commander, NexusFile – these are the most famous file managers with a two-window organization of the file system. Their strength lies in the breadth of the functional. At the same time, all this functionality may not be necessary for those who are at a transition stage – from a beginner to a more or less experienced PC user. Moreover, an excessive number of buttons and commands can confuse and frighten the user.
This is ideal for this transition phase. This is a simple and uncomplicated functional for the most necessary operations when working with files. However, this is much more than what Windows Explorer can offer. But not even the orientation of the program to ordinary users is its main feature. The Q-Dir chip is the organization of windows. It’s not a tree-like file structure, like Windows Explorer, it’s not two windows, like advanced file managers. This is a whole four windows with a file system and a variety of options for changing the type of program.
Q-Dir is intensively developing, regularly updated to “one-hundredth”. The transition from 4.99 to 5.00 marked the beginning of adaptation for Windows 8. It also became possible to open the “Quick-Link” bookmarks in new tabs while holding down the Shift key.
