Double Commander Description

Double Commander is a straightforward and effective software solution that helps you to browse your personal files and folders in a more efficient way.

The main window of the application is separated by two panels side by side that allow you to view the content of two different partitions and browse through folders with ease. For each file, image or folder, details such as name, extension, size, date and attributes are displayed in the list.

One important function of Double Commander is that it allows you to pack files to ZIP, LZMA, TAR, BZ2, TBZ, GZ and TGZ archives by selecting the compression method you are interested in. Also, you are able to create symbolic links, change the timestamp properties and the attributes, view file properties and calculate the occupied space by a specific file.

What’s more, the program enables you to compare two files by their content, change the encoding format for each one and view all the identified differences. This feature is very useful for users who need to compare two documents with identical content, but still contain few different words or sentences.

The Search function enables you to find your favorite files by size, included text, created date and file mask. This way, you can search a directory for specific documents effortlessly. Additionally, you can sort them by name, date, attributes or size. By accessing the Commands menu you are able to swap the panels as well.

However, a drawback of Double Commander is that it does not allow you to move files from one partition to another using drag and drop. All you can do is to browse two different partitions and view their content, delete and rename folders and files, or simply pin them to Start.

In closing, Double Commander comes in handy for users who need to browse through their computer and view the content of two different partitions simultaneously.
