Good file manager, but not quite on the level of Directory Opus. Portability a big plus.

XYplorer is a multi-tabbed file manager featuring a powerful file search, versatile preview facilities, a highly customisable interface, and an array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks.
The program design follows a keep it simple philosophy: its interface has been kept as simple and intuitive as possible, and does not confront you with an overload of buttons, toolbars, or menus. Form followed function, yet while being maximally efficient, it is still attractive to look at. Also, since it closely adheres to the look, feel, and standards from Windows Explorer, you'll need no time at all to start working, and only a few minutes to start working better. With time you'll discover more and more innovative features and will experience how XYplorer's usability helps you to manage your files with ease and efficiency.
XYplorer is a portable file manager. It does not require any installation, stores all data in the program's folder, and running it does not change your system or registry. There are some unique features designed for this portable use, such as PFA (Portable File Associations) and POM (Portable Openwith Menu) which can also be used together to get additional options in how files are opened.
XYplorer is a tool rather than a toy, and targets power users and computer professionals who are looking for an Explorer replacement that deserves its name. Contrary to many other Explorer replacements, XYplorer is very small, very fast, and uses very little memory resources. But don't be fooled, there's a lot of power under the hood.
