The creators Zabkat say that xPlorer2 is what Windows explorer should have been in the first place, and we could not agree more, with this productive powerhouse, we save lot of time managing documents, previewing images and documents, moving files around and more.
Let’s get to the better things and see why using xPlorer2 professional will make you more productive, and how you can win one of the 5 licenses we will be giving away for xPlorer2 Professional worth $29.95 each version as a part of our birthday bash.
xPlorer2 is Windows Explorer in A Better Form
Though xPlorer2 is a better replacement for Windows, it does not aim to take away the familiarity users have had over the years with Windows explorer, at first glance you may think of xPlorer2 as something that is similar to Windows explorer itself, albeit in a different interface and design.
But that is where you can draw a line as far as similarities goes, xPlorer2 allows you to explore files using tabs and dual panes, both of which make managing files and copying or moving them outright simple.
In addition to this xPlorer2 provides you with a easier folder navigation using breadcrumbs, no more fumbling with the mouse or arrow keys to reach the folder you want to.
Another interesting feature which xPlorer2 provides users with is the ability to favorite or bookmark a folder so that they can quickly access it without the need to navigate their way, like they do with windows explorer, you can also add a favorites pane to the xPlorer2 window, to easily access them without using the toolbar.
Preview Files With Launching Another Application in xPlorer2
The biggest productivity loss while managing files is time you spend to open a external application to view the file in question, no matter whether you wanted to just view a single line in the entire file.
xPlorer2 address that issue with a file and document previewer, which allows you to view images, videos, text files, documents and more from within the interface.
Search and Locate documents with Omni-finder
xPlorer2 boasts of Omni-finder, the search engine within xplorer2. Not only will it search for the usual filenames, contained text etc, but it can use all pieces of file information xplorer ² can show in its detailed view as search rules.
Using Omni-finder you can search file comments, picture data, file attributes, keywords and practically anything you can think of.
Reliable option While copying large files over the Network
There are several times when windows explorer will throw up errors when copying large files over the network, xPlorer2 eases of the process of copying files by making available a useful range of options.
With xPlorer2, you can have several parallel background transfers running at the same time or queue the transfers sequentially.
Afraid about overwriting files? xPlorer2 provides users with several overwrite policies (confirm/rename/check dates), size management, and optional clearing of the read-only attribute when copying from CDs.
Synchronizing Folders across computers and the Internet
If you work on multiple computers or use FTP to transfer your files, xPlorer2 can come in pretty handy when you want to quickly synchronize the files and folders between both of them.
xplorer2 can automatically detect files that have changed and need updating with a variety of criteria. It then marks the files that need transferring and awaits your further instructions, e.g. to copy or delete files.
xPlorer2 has tons of more features
xPlorer2 has several more features including command execution and complete customizations, you can take a tour of xPlorer2 professional or watch several helpful instructional videos to learn more about the product.
