You can in all probability guess what the inspiration was behind this file manager, Total Commander. The software’s identify, the dual pane interface and the perform bar on the underside are a useless giveaway about what it is primarily based on.
My Commander is a moveable software. The archive incorporates the executable for the 32-bit and 64-bit variations of this system. The EXE is about 2.33MB and has a gentle reminiscence footprint. MyCo (because it’s referred to by the developer), helps tabs like a internet browser.
As a matter of reality, it does come with a built-in internet browser. Click on the “tabs” menu (or right-click on a tab or use the hotkey Ctrl + Alt + B) to open a new browser tab. That’s actually cool, however My Commander’s browser doesn’t render pages appropriately. Beside, I believe it is protected to say that most individuals would like utilizing their favourite browser and extensions. Still, could also be helpful for opening native HTML pages.
Back to MyCo’s interface, you possibly can open a number of tabs to browse completely different folders, this along with the second pane makes shifting, copying and opening recordsdata a lot simpler. There is a menu bar and a Toolbar on the high which is referred to as Standard bar. It has monochrome icons that are minimal in design, they function shortcuts for varied file operations. Then there is the drive bar, used for leaping to the completely different partitions and drives in your pc. The command bar on the backside can be utilized to execute varied instructions.
The File menu incorporates some helpful choices reminiscent of a batch renaming utility, a software for splitting recordsdata or merging them. You could create checksum recordsdata utilizing varied algorithms. The program enables you to encode (encrypt) recordsdata by storing them in a completely different file utilizing AES/RC4/DES/3DES 256, XXTEA, BASE64 modes.
My Commander additionally comes with a built-in file archiver software which you could entry from the “File > Compress or Decompress in Place” choices. The official documentation says that MyCo helps ZIP, 7ZIP, TAR, CPIO, ZEN, ISO, LZ4, GZ, LZMA, XZ, BZ2, for each extraction and creation of archives. Perform primary file operations, copy the total path or chosen filenames, preview and edit recordsdata from the Edit menu. You can change the sorting order, toggle the tree mode, change to horizontal pane view from the Style menu. Optionally set My Commander to reduce to the tray, or keep on high of different applications from the identical menu.
The Tabs menu does precisely what the right-click menu on the tab bar does (open new tab, shut tab, shut all tabs, duplicate tab or open browser tab). Access community drives, share folders, hook up with your FTP folders from the Net menu.
The Programs menu has shortcuts for varied Windows functions like Calculator, Notepad, Paint, Task Manager, Control Panel, Registry Editor, System Restore, On Screen Keyboard, Windows PowerShell, Command Prompt, and Administrative Tools (Task Scheduler, Services, Firewall, and many others). You could use the System menu to lock the system, log out, restart or shut down the pc or put it to sleep or hibernate it.
Find recordsdata, monitor folders, evaluate the contents of two directories, synchronize two folders, view operating processes from the Tools menu. It additionally has choices to vary the quantity label, format the drive, run the Windows Disk Defragment software and uninstall applications.
Just like Total Commander, My Commander doesn’t have an instantaneous right-click menu. You want to carry the appropriate mouse button for a second to make it seem. The software has a built-in viewer that can be utilized to open photographs, textual content, and movies instantly.
Use the F3 button to open recordsdata within the inside viewer. Double-clicking the recordsdata opens them within the default file handler (Notepad, Windows Photo Viewer, and many others). If you need to edit textual content paperwork, use F4.
Note: The official web site does not point out this, however this system can be utilized to play music as properly. But it solely labored with MP3 recordsdata.
This overview is primarily based on the latest beta model, v5. It’s fairly an identical to v4, however v5 has higher wanting icons on the toolbar. There are some adjustments within the menu gadgets as properly.
My Commander is a polished file manager. It’s fairly just like File Commander, however with further options and has the benefit of being moveable.
