    Explorer++ is a free multi-tab file manager for Windows. Available on Windows XP and above, it features the same familiar interface as Windows Explorer, while introducing several enhancements and improvements for a much richer file browsing experience.

    Feature list
    Browse both real and virtual folders.
    Tabbed browsing for easy management of multiple folders.
    Display window shows previews of images as they are selected.
    Easy-to-remember keyboard shortcuts for quick navigation.
    Customizable user interface.
    Full drag-and-drop support with other applications, including Windows Explorer.
    Advanced file operations such as merging and splitting supported.

    What´s New
    New features
    • Taskbar thumbnails are now shown for each tab in Windows 7 (this can be turned on/off by toggling 'Show taskbar thumbnails' in the Options dialog).
    • 'New Tab' added to Tasks jump list in Windows 7.
    • Numerous improvements to drag and drop/copy and paste.
    • Text on the clipboard can now be pasted as a file. The file will be given a name of the form: Clipboard Text ([datetime]).txt. This also applies to drag and drop.
    • Images on the clipboard can now be pasted as a file. The file will be given a name of the form: Clipboard Image ([datetime]).bmp. This also applies to drag and drop.
    • The contents of the address bar can now be dragged and dropped.
    • Large toolbar icons added.
    • Files can now be dropped onto existing application toolbar buttons. This will open the dropped files in that application.
    • 'Automatically synchronize treeview with main pane' option added; this setting controls whether or not the treeview will automatically stay in sync with the listview whilst browsing.
    • 'Automatically expand nodes on selection' option added; if this setting is enabled treeview nodes will automatically expand when they are selected.
    • Shift+Mousewheel down and shift+mousewheel up can now be used to browse backwards and forwards, respectively.
    • The tab bar can now be hidden when there is only one tab.
    • The tab bar can now be shown at the bottom of the listview.
    • A navigation sound is now played when entering a folder.
    • The current folder is now selected when navigating up.
    • Listview groups can now be collapsed (Vista and later).
    • Listview checkboxes can now be turned on by selecting 'Use check boxes to select items' in the Options dialog.
    • Closing the last tab will now close the main window (provided the corresponding option is selected in the Options dialog).
    • Items can now be rearranged in details view.
    • It is now possible to show file sizes in one of: Bytes/KB/MB/GB/TB/PB.
    • Ctrl+Backspace can now be used to browse to the root of a tab.
    • Shift+Double Click will now open the selected folder in a new window.
    • "Desktop", "Pictures", "Music", "Videos" and "Documents" are all now valid address bar shortcuts.

    Bug fixes
    • Several dialogs weren't closing when Escape was pressed. Fixed.
    • Fixed 'Copy Universal File Paths' bug.
    • Previously, if 'Hide file extensions' was checked, the display names of both files and folders would be altered. Fixed so that only files names are altered.
    • When 'Single-click to open an item' was selected, navigation up would occur on a single click, instead of a double click. Fixed.
    • Fixed directory modification bug.
    • Fixed set file attributes dialog bug (file dates weren't been saved correctly).
    • Fixed treeview rename bug (child items not updated).
    • Fixed treeview sort bug.
    • Fixed toolbar positioning bug.
    • Fixed custom infotips bug.

    • All settings are now saved to the registry (or XML file) when 'Ok' or 'Apply' is clicked in the Options dialog.
    • The treeview no longer syncs with network/UNC paths.
    • Copied data now remains on the clipboard after Explorer++ exits.
    • Search dialog now turns patterns of the form '???' into '*???*' before searching.
    • Main window now obeys startup position information (e.g. minimized/maximized, etc).
    • Wildcard select/deselect is now case insensitive.
    • Can now scroll listview/treeview, even when it does not have focus.
    • The options dialog is now modeless.
    • Handle zip files set to false by default.
