Total Commander (former Wincmd) is a file manager for Windows similar to the Windows Explorer. But Total Commander uses a different approach: it has two fixed windows side by side like a well-known file manager for DOS.
Two file windows side by side
Multiple language and Unicode support
Enhanced search function
Compare files (now with editor) / synchronize directories
Quick View panel with bitmap display
ZIP, ARJ, LZH, RAR, UC2, TAR, GZ, CAB, ACE archive handling + plugins
Built-in FTP client with FXP (server to server) and HTTP proxy support
Parallel port link, multi-rename tool
Tabbed interface, regular expressions, history+favorites buttons
Thumbnails view, custom columns, enhanced search
Compare editor, cursor in lister, separate trees, logging, enhanced overwrite dialog etc.
Unicode names almost everywhere, long names (>259 characters), password manager for ftp and plugins, synchronize empty dirs, 64 bit context menu, quick file filter (Ctrl+S)
New: USB port connection via special direct transfer cable, partial branch view (Ctrl+Shift+B), and many imporvements to ftp, synchronizing and other functions
And many more!
Fixed: Internal function cm_SearchForInCurDir tried to search in curdir\.. instead of current dir with cursor on [..] (64)
Fixed: Search in separate process: List file containing selected file names wasn’t deleted (32)
Fixed: Button bar, start menu: Parameter %p%s in branch view added path relative to current dir twice (32/64)
Fixed: Left panel: Search result within archive; Right panel: Create file with Shift+F4, then rename it -> search result was lost (32/64)
Fixed: Allow to open files even if they contain right to left markers, but only if they also contain real right to left text (e.g. Arabic) (32/64)
Fixed: Do not remove right to left markers from file names in list when using aligned extensions (separate column) (32/64)
Fixed: Configuration – Options – Icons: The new checkboxes (e.g. for dimmed icons) were not disabled when checking “no icons” (32/64)
Added: RestrictInterface=1024: Disable manual and automatic update checks, and hide update function from menu (e.g. for companies) (32/64)
Fixed: TC could cause high CPU load when minimized with option “Auto-refresh” set to “Don’t react to updates while in the background” when files were changed while minimized (32/64)
