XYplorer is a file manager for Windows. It features tabbed browsing, a powerful file search, a versatile preview, a highly customizable interface, optional dual pane, and a large array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks. It’s fast and light, it’s innovative, and it’s portable. Download now XYplorer!

Features and Highlights

It’s Portable
XYplorer is a portable file manager. It doesn’t require any installation, stores all configuration data in the application data folder, and running it doesn’t change your system or registry. Take it with you and start it from a USB stick. File management to go.

It’s Tabbed
Tabs let you switch between folders most easily. Drag them around, hide them, lock them, name them, or drop files onto them. The tabs remember their configuration individually and across sessions. On top of this, you get tab sets and dual pane.

It’s Functional
XYplorer has been designed to make you faster. Numerous usability enhancements in an attractive interface help to streamline your workflow and increase your efficiency. You will definitely save a lot of time.

It’s Scriptable
Yes, you can program this app. Individual solutions for individual tasks. No plugins needed, scripts run out-of-the-box. Even beginners can benefit from this feature since many ready-to-use scripts are available in the forum.

It’s Customizable
You can fine-tune the app to look and behave exactly as you want it. This ranges from fonts and colors to custom toolbar buttons and even file icons and program associations. And every bit of it is fully portable.

It’s Responsive
Your customer's voice is listened to and taken seriously, most of the time you get instant feedback, and your wish might actually get implemented sooner than you’d think.

Note: You may evaluate the unregistered trial version for free for a maximum period of 30 days. If you wish to continue using it after 30 days, you have to purchase a license. On registration, all trial version limitations are immediately removed.

What's new in this version:

XYplorer 25.90
- Bookmarks. Now you can drag and drop applications, documents, and folders onto the toolbar to make them available as bookmarks, just like you do in web browsers. You can also create bookmarks from items or text in the clipboard.
- Once you've added a bookmark to the toolbar, you can click it to launch an application, open a document, or go to a folder. Or you can drag and drop items onto it to open them with an application, or to copy or move them to a folder, depending on what the bookmark points to.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 25.80
- Multi-Row Toolbar. Now you can have as many toolbar rows as you want. And you can show and hide less frequently used extra rows of buttons with a single keystroke of your choice.
- Dark Mode Color Tint. Now you can choose from 360 available colors to add a nice tint to your darkness.
- Rename With Live Feedback. Now you can get live feedback as you type in the rename box. You can see if the current name is legal, already taken, longer than 259 characters, good to go. A valuable time and hassle saver.
- Encoding In Tooltip. Now you can display the encoding (Ascii, UTF-8, UTF-8 BOM, UTF-16LE, etc.) of the hovered file in the tooltip.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 25.70
- Permanent Custom Sort Order Per Folder
- Zero Padding
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 25.60
- Custom Thumbnail Overlays. Now you can overlay any file information over a thumbnail in a style of your choice. Photographers will appreciate seeing the date the shot was taken and camera settings such as focal length, aperture, exposure time, and ISO speed.

XYplorer 25.50
- Status Column. Now you can have the OneDrive Status column in the file list, including searching and filtering by availability status.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 25.40
- The GUI got a little facelift. Rounded tabs, fading captions, general airiness and smoothness.

XYplorer 25.30
Rounded Corners:
- Labels and color filters now optionally look slicker
- For labels, you can toggle the setting at Configuration | Information | Tags | Rounded, for Color Filters at Configuration | Colors and Styles | Color Filters | Draw background colors as rounded rectangles

Soft Labels:
- Now you can use the label column as a link to any of the other tag columns. For example, you can display your rating stars here.

Color-Code Path Length:
- You can now color-code items in the folder tree and file list according to their path length. Useful if you work with long, deep paths and need shell compatibility.
- The Windows shell and many applications may refuse to work properly when confronted with path lengths > 259 characters. It is nice to be able to see right away when such problems are approaching.

TGA Image Preview:
- Now you can natively preview and thumbnail TGA with transparency without the need for a third-party codec

XYplorer 25.20
Overall Spacing:
- Now you can fine-tune the overall spacing (or airiness, or density) of the main window. Do you want to see as much information as you can squeeze in, or do you prefer a more relaxed layout with larger click targets?

Dual Locations:
- Full support for dual locations allows you to open new folders in both panes with a single click, filter both panes with a single click, perform searches in both panes with a single click, and add the combined locations of both panes to your Favorites list. If you use dual panes, this is what you have been waiting for.

Highlight the Other Path:
- Now you can color code the path of the inactive pane in the folder tree. It can be useful to know what’s on the other side and where it is

XYplorer 25.10
- Matching Breadcrumb Bars: You can now match the colors of the breadcrumb bar to the custom colors of the selected tab. Extending the color of the tab to the breadcrumb bar makes a bold visual statement and is a welcome clue in poor lighting conditions.
- Multi-Column Matching: File list filtering can now match a given pattern against three columns (Name, Comment, Tags) at once. Nothing can hide from you anymore.
- Serial Rename with Up and Down Keys. Improved algorithm. Now it better supports work at the end of filenames of different lengths. And that’s where you usually work when updating serialized or dated names.
- Speed and Robustness: Improved performance for large file operations. Jobs with up to millions of items run smoothly, quickly, and reliably.

XYplorer 25.00
The Glider:
- The Glider is a floating, context-sensitive mini toolbar in the folder tree that magically appears at your mouse pointer, offering buttons for the most common file management operations: Copy, Move and Paste. It’s like drag and drop without the dragging. Fully customizable. A game changer when it comes to manually organizing files into folders.

How to turn it on:
- Toggle the Glider at Tools | Customize Tree | Show Glider.
- Pro Tip: The same menu can by shown by Shift+right-clicking anywhere in the white space of the folder tree.

- Here you can see the Glider in action. Just one click to move a bunch of files to a specific folder. No drag-and-drop, no copy-and-paste, no need to go to the destination folder. You stay where you are.

- Virtually everything about the Glider is customizable from its right-click menu. You can decide where it appears, when it appears, and how it appears.

Usage Tips:
- To display the glider buttons vertically, select 1 for Buttons per Row.
- If you’re about to use the Glider to move a bunch of files to different tree folders, your task will be streamlined if you show just that one Glider button (Select Buttons... / Move selected items here) and make it appear directly under the mouse pointer (Hover Zone / Snap to First Button).

XYplorer 24.90
- Color Folder Rows. If you’re looking for folders, you’ve come to the right place. Now, with a single keystroke, you can color-code folders to make them stand out.
- Switch Folder Views. Now you can switch between the current and your favorite folder view with a single keystroke. A folder view includes column layout, sort order, list view, and list style.
- Many Other Improvements.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to songs by Automatic Shoes.

XYplorer 24.80
- Tree Section Colors. Optional custom text and background colors for different sections of the tree help you find your branch in a huge tree and instantly recognize where you are. It's all about quick orientation.
- Quickly Select the Item. You can now toggle item selection in the file list by Ctrl+left-clicking any cell in the row, even if Full Row Select is off. This makes it easier to select (deselect) items in a very wide list, especially when the Name column is scrolled to the left out of view.
- Quickly Spot the Name. You can now hold CTRL while hovering over any cell other than the Name cell and a tooltip will show the name of the item. Quite useful if that name is currently scrolled to the left out of view.
- Expansion Icon Chevron. A new expansion icon, the Chevron, is now available for the folder tree. It’s also the new factory default.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 24.70
- Zoom to Fit for Thumbnails. Allows you to enlarge smaller originals as much as the current thumbnail size will allow and turn your thumbnails into pixel magnifiers. On the fly. Every icon designer's dream.
- Zoom to Fit for the Hover Box. Hover the mouse over small image files and view their pixels like under a microscope. No clicks required. Useful fun.
- Many Other Improvements
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the songs of Brooke Combe.

XYplorer 24.60
- Custom Folder Icons. Now the download package contains five colored folder icons in Windows 11 style for your pleasure. Three of them are predefined as Custom File Icons. Seeing them in action is just a click away. You get a cute yellow generic folder icon, a blue icon for empty folders, and a red one for inaccessible folders. Looks good and is more helpful than you might think. Give it a try!
- Deghost Your Icons. Now you can control whether the icons of hidden items are drawn in this ghostly, semi-transparent way (Windows default) or not.
- Peek at Embedded Icons. Now you can use the wheel to scroll through all the embedded icons an icon resource and see their full list.
- Status Bar Section Width. Now you can adjust the width of the first two sections of the status bar by hitting Shift+Alt+Wheel over them.

XYplorer 24.50
- Folder Icons Based On Content. Now you can define custom icons for empty, full and Access Denied folders. These icons are used everywhere, in the folder tree, file list, all menus and drop-down lists, breadcrumb bars, address bar, etc., so you can immediately see whether a folder has contents or not.
- Quick Boolean Filter. Now the Live Filter Box can treat space-separated items as ANDed Boolean operands. This makes filtering simple, fast, and effective in a way that feels natural.
- Wrap-Around List. Now you can have the file list wrap around the edges, i.e. if you press UP at the top of the list, you go to the bottom of the list, and if you press DOWN at the bottom of the list, you go to the top of the list.

XYplorer 24.40
- Mobile Hover Box. Now you can easily move the Hover Box (instant file preview on mouse over) from file to file with the navigation keys. Cool and useful.
- Custom Event Sounds. Now supports all playable audio formats.
- Open Folders with a Single Click. Now you can optionally open folders in the file list with a single click, just like in the folder tree.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 24.30
- Event Sounds. Tired of staring at a progress bar until a file operation is finally finished? Starting from this version you can have a short sound playing that tells you when the operation is finished and if it was finished successfully.
- There is also a pop sound for deletes, which are usually instantaneous. This was added just for fun. You may find that completing an operation with a sonic event generally gives you a strange sense of primal satisfaction.
- Custom Event Sounds. If you don’t like the default sounds, and/or have better ones, you can easily add them to the soundscape. Yes, you can have the application play an entire song when your backup is complete.
- Background Dragging. Now you can drag files from a background XYplorer window to another application window in the foreground. A long awaited feature is finally implemented.
- Go Now. If you’re a habitual scripter, you’ll love the new ability to launch a script from the address bar with a keyboard shortcut of your choice.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 24.20
- Image Columns. So far a data record in a file listing consisted of an icon, maybe a thumbnail, and various bits of text. The signature look of a details view in a file manager. Those days are over. Now you can add images to the mix. And not just one per file, but many: Up to 80 different pics per file, all in one list!
- These images can be arbitrarily assigned to a file (and recorded in a database), or based on rules (e.g. based on the file name or other file properties). Typical use cases would be showing wave forms for sounds, or album covers for songs, or different states or angles of people or designs.
- And that’s just the beginning. Since columns can be scripted, the possibilities are endless. A column could even create the image it’s about to show.
- By the way, if you move your mouse over these images, you’ll optionally get an enlarged view, the so-called Hover Box
- Absolutely massive new feature. Ground-breaking

This is a screenshot by a user showing a display of wave form images in an XYplorer Image Column:
- Wave form images in Details View
- Note that the wave form images are not created by XYplorer itself. Another software has to take care of that. But in XYplorer you can assign them to a sound file, and display them along with the sound file.
- So, how do we get there, step by step (arbitrary assignment)?

First, set the list to Details View and add an Image Column. For arbitrary assignment we take an Extra Column (there are 16 available) via View | Columns | Show Columns..., open the Configuration Dialog via right-clicking the column header, call it "Waves" (or whatever you like) and set the column type to "Image":
- Configuring an Extra Column as Image Column

Now here is our minimalistic example setup: one WAV file and one PNG file containing the corresponding wave form image. Both files have the same base name, but obviously different extensions. Our new Image Column "Waves" is already visible but still empty, folder tree is hidden:
- Image Column "Waves" is still empty
- Now we select the PNG file and press Ctrl+Shift+P to copy the filename without path to clipboard

Then we right-click the WAV file cell in the Waves column and select the Paste command:
- Pasting the image file name into the Image Column cell

Done. This is how it looks now:
- Voila, the wave form is there

Move the mouse over it to get a zoomed view (need to tick "Image Columns" in Configuration | Information | File Info Tips & Hover Box | Show Hover Box | Select Context... first):
- Wave form zoomed in a Hover Box
- Do it again, but differently (automatic assignment)
- Okay, this was an arbitrary assignment and it is stored in a database. If you are well-behaved and your wave form files always have the same base name as your corresponding wave files then there is something better: automatic assignment based on rules! No database involved, no disk space wasted.

This time we add a Custom Column (there are 64 available), and configure it like this:
- Configuring a Custom Column as Image Column
- As Template we use <cc_base>.png which is template speak for "same base name, but PNG extension"
- And that’s it! Once you OK the configuration dialog, the wave form image will show in your column. And it will do like this for all WAV files that have corresponding wave form image files, in all locations, wherever you show this column!
- Voila, the wave form is there (again)
- Of course, you don’t have to keep your wave form images where your wave files are. You can as well have them in a different place, for example in a sister folder "WaveForms", which you could reference like this (using standard Windows relative path syntax) in the template: ..WaveForms<cc_base>.png.
- That was just a small scratch on the surface. The possibilities are endless. Check out the Help file and the User Forum for more ideas, tricks and tips.
- SketchUp Preview. Now previews and thumbnails are supported for SketchUp Pro (3D CAD software) *.skp and *.layout files
- I told you it works
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 24.10
Empty Cell Defaults:
- If you suffer from fear of the void you will be glad that this version offers easy ways to fill the void. The marking of the different types of emptiness can actually serve a better overview.
- Empty cells are cells without content. Normally they simply show nothing. Now you can make them show something, something of your own free choice. It can make quite a difference in the look and feel of a list.

Fake Right-Drag-and-Drop:
- Now you can fake a right-drag-and-drop by holding down CTRL and SHIFT while doing a left-drag-and-drop. That way you can have the drag-and-drop context menu on left-drag-and-drop, which is pretty cool in limited hardware and software contexts.

XYplorer 24.00
- Virtual Folders. Virtual Folders are folders where you define the content directly in the folder name. You can directly "create" such a folder by typing it into the Address Bar. Nothing is created on disk, it's all in the name. And it's super fast because almost no file system browsing is involved. A revolutionary new concept that adds a number of interesting possibilities to your file management.
- Drop Menu on Hover. Now the menus optionally auto-drop on hovering a component separator. No more clicking. Smooth and comfortable.
- Many Other Improvements. See change log.

XYplorer 23.90
- Native Context Menu. Now you can replace the normally slow shell context menu with a blazing fast native one.
- AIFF Audio Properties. Now AIFF files (Audio Interchange File Format: *.aif, *.aiff, *.aifc) are supported natively, i.e. you get Length, Sample Rate, Bit Depth, Bit Rate and Channels, each in its own column
- Media Length Custom Format. The context menu of the Length column header now offers the toggles "Show Hours" and "Show Milliseconds". Lets you format the length display the way you like it.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 23.80
- Multi-User Tagging. Significantly improved and reinforced to withstand fast-acting, high-impact environments on shaky networks.
- Access Control. Many additional user access control options to increase corporate security in a multi-user tagging context.
- Batch Renumbering. Now you can easily update numbering in files with serial numbers.
- RAW Photo Preview and Thumbnails. Faster. Much faster.
- App Icon. Back to the old icon. It’s just too iconic to be replaced.
- Many Other Improvements

XYplorer 23.70
- Minor bug fixes and enhancements

XYplorer 23.60
- This is a BIG maintenance release. Numerous minor fixes and improvements have been made since the last major release.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of PJ Harvey.

XYplorer 23.50
- Overlaid Thumbnail Captions. Thumbnail captions can now be superimposed over the image like subtitles in a movie. Saves space and looks cool.
- Color-Code Folders by Content. Now color filters can be applied to folders in tree and list depending on what items they contain.

XYplorer 23.40
- Indestructible Tree. Currently not interested in collapsing or expanding? Now you can lock the nodes to fix your folder tree in its current expanded state.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the voice of Nico

XYplorer 23.30
Ordinal Date:
- The new Ordinal Date option for the date format eliminates the months from the equation and only displays years and days. This makes it easier to estimate a date difference at a glance. For example, today would be "2022-179" (year 2022, day 179). The Ordinal Date format is used by the military in some contexts, so it’s safe to assume it has its uses.
- To switch to Ordinal Date right-click any of the date column headers, e.g. "Modified", and select Ordinal Date from the popup menu

Preview Pane to the Left:
- Now you can show the Preview Pane to the left of the file list. The obvious advantage is that the previews then are nearer to the name column, which is where you usually look and click.
- To toggle the Preview Pane position use menu Window | Arrangement | Preview Pane to the Left

Duplicate File Finder Can Ignore Numbers:
- Now it can optionally ignore serial numbers and strings like "Copy of" that are auto-attached by Windows to the name of a file copied in the same place. If "Ignore numbers" is enabled, the file names "Fred.txt", "Fred (1).txt", "Fred (2).txt" and "Fred - Copy (2).txt" are considered duplicates.

Compilation Soundtrack:
- Compiled to "(I’m) Stranded" of The Saints

XYplorer 23.20
Main developments since last release:
- Filter Images By Aspect Ratio. You can now filter or find all images that are equal to or wider than 3:2, for example.
- Sort Images By Aspect Ratio. You can also sort your image folders by aspect ratio, for example from tall and narrow (portrait) to wide and flat (landscape).
- Filter Images By Area. You can now filter or find all images larger than a million square pixels, for example.
- Sort Images By Area. You can as well sort your image folders by the area covered by the images.
- Make The Name Column Stand Out. Now you can dim the other columns slightly to highlight the name column. A helpful feature for column messies.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Brothers Comatose

XYplorer 23.10
- Wheel Through The List Views. Now you can scroll through the available 10 list views with the wheel, Ctrl+Wheel to be precise.
- Auto-repeat Search At Next Location. Now you can automatically repeat the current search for the next selected location. No more browse-then-search, browse-then-search, browse-then-search, but just search, search, search.
- Skip Invisible Subfolders. Now you can control whether invisible subfolders are included in a recursive search.
- Transparent Folders Through Color Filters. Now you get advanced folder color filters that show the type of folder content right in the file list. Saves you a lot of guessing and opening.
- Show Bitness In Tooltip. The bitness (32-bit or 64-bit) is now displayed at the end of the tooltip for all file types where it makes sense (EXE, DLL, DRV, TLB, etc).
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Obongjayar.

XYplorer 23.00
- The Hamburger. Now you can cram all sorts of ingredients into a single hamburger menu: Menu commands, toolbar buttons, scripts, paths, URLs. The syntax couldn’t be simpler, and before long you’ll be creating custom pop-up menus that serve as mighty power hubs tailored to your exact needs.
- Ads. Still none.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Beatles.

XYplorer 22.90
- Change log not available for this version

XYplorer 22.80
- Dark Mode. Much improved. Everything is dark now, at least if you are using Windows 10 Release 2004 (May 2020) or later. Only the menu bar is still white, but hey, you now have a button to toggle it on and off quickly.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Jenny Lewis.

XYplorer 22.70
- Custom Toolbar Buttons Support Middle Click. Now you can define a separate script that will be triggered by the middle button. That gives you 64 more possible scripts to make your life easier.
- Tooltip Zoom. Now you can enlarge the tooltips by up to 400%, which turns each tooltip into a kind of magnifying glass. Relaxes the eyes and makes the file manager easier to use for users with visual impairments.
- Verbatim Tooltips. Now you can optionally display whatever the mouse is pointing at in a tooltip. This option is aimed directly at screen readers who read tooltips aloud and makes the file manager easier to use for users with visual impairments.
- Hover Box Zooming. Now you can hold down the CTRL key to make it super fine: 1 pixel per step. And if you hold SHIFT, it's 10x faster than normal: 100 pixels per step.

XYplorer 22.60
Custom Status Bar Info:
- Now you can freely define what you would like to see in the 3rd section of the status bar when a file is focused or the current file selection changes. This is a quick way to get additional information without adding an entire extra column or showing a file info tip. This can be, for example, the dimensions of the currently selected photo, or the sample rate of the currently selected song. You can even get information not available anywhere else, like the total length of all currently selected media files.

XYplorer 22.50
- This Is A BIG Maintenance Release. There have been numerous minor fixes and enhancements since 22.40

XYplorer 22.40
- Word Break Style: Improved the automatic word boundary recognition (on double-click, Ctrl+Arrow, Ctrl+BackSpace) in various text boxes including
- Address Bar and script boxes
- SC listfolder: Flag 64 (return special paths) could return the wrong
- special paths if there was more than one theoretical option. Fixed.
- Live Filter Box: Making the factory default width dependent on the screen width (v22.30.0004 - 2021-10-02 12:01) was a mistake. Fixed. Now it's back to a hard 140 pixels (at 100% resolution) initially.

XYplorer 22.30
Main developments since last release:
- Live Filter via Cell Context Menu. Now it's just a click to filter the list for a specific property. And that's any property, including the standard columns, tags, comments, extended shell properties, and even your own user-defined custom columns. Unprecedented and addictive usability booster. And the learning curve is a dot.
- Quick Search via Cell Context Menu. Now it's just a click to search the current location including its subfolders for a specific property. And that's any property, including the standard columns, tags, comments, extended shell properties, and even your own user-defined custom columns. Just wow.
- Photo Data in the Hover Box. See Camera Model, Focal Length, F-Stop, Exposure Time, Exposure Bias, ISO Speed, and Date Taken, and of course an image preview by simply moving the mouse over the photo file.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the groove of Charlie Watts.

XYplorer 22.20
- Autofit the Name Column. Now you can let the Name column automatically take up all of the space not used by the other columns. A simple check mark saves you a lot of scrolling and dragging. So useful that you’ll stick with it forever.
- Autosize the Size Column. The Size column is the one with the most variable content, the one that’s typically always either too wide or too narrow. With this option, the width of the Size column is automatically adjusted when positions are changed or tabs are switched or when a new column layout is loaded.
- Secondary Sort Order Arrow. Now you can indicate the implicit secondary sort order by a very light little sort arrow. You’ll love it if you’re nerd enough.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to music by Cedric Burnside.

XYplorer 22.10
Extra Safety on Name Collisions:
- The new condition "Overwrite if different contents", in which the contents are compared by comparing the SHA-256 hash of each file, offers additional security for your backup, copy and synchronization jobs.

Converting Filenames to Title Case:
- The bulk renamer will now recognize words that are excluded from conversion to upper case. This way, your song and photo collections will look more natural with just a single click. The list of exclusions can of course be edited.

Irrational Aspect Ratio:
- Now ISO 216, also known as the "Lichtenberg Ratio", an international standard for paper sizes used around the world except in some parts of the Americas, is shown in XYplorer as 1:√2 or √2:1, for images whose aspect ratio is close enough to the irrational number. A little nerd honey ...

Compilation Soundtrack:
- Compiled to music by Joe Strummer

XYplorer 22.00
- Column Layouts. Now you can load predefined and custom column layouts with just one click. Instead of laboriously collecting special columns, the photo column layout, for example, shows the date the photo was taken, dimensions, aspect ratio, exposure time, exposure compensation, F-stop, focal length, ISO sensitivity and camera model in no time at all. The audio column layout gives you length, sample rate, bit depth, bit rate and channels. You can adapt the column layouts to your particular needs.
- Maximum Depth. Now you can easily narrow the search recursion depth. E.g. maximum depth 2 means: Search at the current location and 2 levels deeper.
- Sorting Search Results. The new "Always sort search results this way" option lets you control exactly how all of your search results are initially sorted. Sorting column, sorting direction and even secondary sorting are supported.
- Add Tabs Using Drag & Drop. Now you can turn a folder into a new tab by simply dragging and dropping it onto the empty part of the tab bar or the gaps between two tabs.
- Autosize Columns Here. Now you can limit the automatic adjustment of the column sizes to the currently visible rows. This has two advantages: You don’t get super-wide columns for something that’s miles out of sight, and it’s much faster with long lists.

XYplorer 21.90
- This Is A BIG Maintenance Release. There have been numerous minor fixes and enhancements since 21.80

XYplorer 21.80
- Favorite Live Filters. Now you can define up to 32 Favorite Live Filters for the Live Filter Box. Makes you filter faster
- Enhanced Archive Extraction. The various extraction commands now also support *.rar and other WinRAR formats and *.7z and other 7-Zip formats if those applications are present (even on a portable medium)
- Permanent Random Sort Order. A randomized sort order now survives a list refresh and is remembered between tab switches and app sessions
- Marked Custom Sort Orders. Now the random sort order is indicated by a small "dice" character in the Name column header, and the manual sort order by a small "hand" character. It’s the little things
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of The Black Keys

XYplorer 21.70
- Seamless Wave Looping. Just select a sample file and hear it spinning in a perfect seamless loop. Audio folks love it
- Smart Branch View. A new branch view (aka flat view) type shows only files and non-empty folders, i.e. any folders that contain nothing or only empty folders (or, in case of a search, do not contain any files that match the search) are not listed in the branch view. Gives you a much cleaner and more useful view.
- Tree Scroll Position Remembered Per Tab. Optionally, each tab restores the tree position it was in when it was last exited. Many users have waited for this feature, not many file managers have it.
- Color-Code Empty Tree Folders. Finally color filters can be applied in the folder tree in a way that lets you spot all empty folders at a glance
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Elise LeGrow

XYplorer 21.60
- Hover Box Wheel Scaling. Now the mouse wheel can scale images and PDF previews while the Hover Box (a zero-click preview that pops up by merely hovering the filename) is shown. So natural and so useful.
- Mouse Down Blow Up Zoomed. Ready for another game changer? Mouse Down Blow Up (a large preview that pops up on mouse down on a thumbnail or icon) now can zoom into the original by a freely configurable zoom factor. Got small images, large screens, and weak eyes? MDBUZ is your ticket.
- Find Files by Contained Characters. Now you can find files that contain certain characters or character ranges within their textual contents. Allows you to search for files containing any characters in the upper Unicode range, or any Mongolian characters, or whatever specific characters you are interested in.
- Apply Button in Configuration. Street pressure became unbearable so an Apply button was added that allows you to apply any changed settings to the main window without closing the Configuration dialog.
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Starcrawler.

XYplorer 21.50
Hover Box Scrolling:
- Now you can keyboard-scroll and wheel-scroll the Folder Contents Preview, the Zip Contents Preview, and the Text Preview You won’t get this degree of interface coolness anywhere else

Hover Box for Tabs:

- Custom Event Actions. A major new feature that provides you with an easy to use yet powerful usability booster. For example, you now can freely decide what should happen when a folder is middle-clicked, or when the status bar is double-clicked, and so on. It can be simple things like "Open in new background tab" or "Go up", but it can also be much more. If you know a bit about scripting, Custom Event Actions can be a real game changer. And if you don’t you now have a good reason to learn it.

This your Custom Event Actions (CEA) cockpit, you are the pilot now:
- CEA control panel
- Sorting the Folder Contents Preview. Now you can control the sort order in the Folder Contents Preview, which also includes the Hover Box on folders. Quite likely you want to see the recent files on top. Now you can.

- Autosize Name Column Right Margin. Isn’t it annoying when on autosize the name column springs to a width far beyond the window edge where you cannot see it anyway, and where you’re forced to horizontally scroll the list to enable you to manually grab the column separator to make it smaller again? Not anymore! Now you can define a minimal margin from the right window edge. The name column will not go beyond this margin on autosize
- Adaptive Name Column Width. Tick it to soften the width of the name column when resizing the list so that all other columns keep their width and visibility. Try it, you will quickly get used to it
- Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Norah Jones

XYplorer 21.10
- 64-bit Preview. Some file types, e.g. WebP graphic files (WEBP), SolidWorks files (SLDASM, SLDDRW, SLDPRT) or OpenOffice files (ODP, ODS, ODT), implement their preview not via preview handlers but via thumbnail providers. This has always been supported for 32-bit thumbnail providers. However, in some cases those thumbnail providers are only provided in the 64-bit flavor (e.g. SolidWorks). Those are supported now as well, so there are SolidWorks and many other previews now.
- Quick Find Files. The Quick Search dialog now offers a Quick Find Files mode where you can remote control the Find Files tab in the Info Panel (F12). That way you can quickly do a Find Files search without first opening that tab and without having it in the way of the search results listing

- Multi-User-Tagging. The concept of Multi-User-Tagging, i.e. sharing file tags within a networked team, is around for quite a while in XYplorer, but the first implementation lacked power, comfort, and elegance. Not anymore
- If you are looking for a way to implement a shared tagging system, you found it. Easy setup, fast automatic real-time synchronization, access control, and a large number of independent fields (Label, Tags, Comment, and 16 freely definable Extra Tags) for each file

Toolbar Captions:
- Finally XYplorer’s newbie-friendliness extends to the toolbar. If you ever wanted to know what those colorful toolbar buttons actually do, this version comes with optional captions. To turn on the captions use menu command Tools | Customize Toolbar... (Ctrl+Shift+F9), then click the Options button in the Customize Toolbar dialog, and tick Show Button Captions. Well, this is definitely a newbie-only feature (but hey, we all should honor our inner newbie once in a while). Fortunately you can scroll the toolbar (by dragging it with the mouse) to move the rest of the buttons into view

Sync Caps:
- Now Sync Folders ensures that the capitalization (lower/upper case letters in the item names) of the target files and folders exactly matches that of the source items. There is nothing to learn. It just works.

Time Stamping:
- Now you can easily "touch" files (set the filetime to now) via the context menu

Know Your Clipboard:

Hamburger at the Breadcrumbs:
- A new button brings some often used commands closer to the mouse. Actually we should have made it a Cheeseburger to attract the mouse even more. The button pops a menu that is fully customizable. However, you need to acquaint yourself with light programming skills to make it happen. No worries, even the default commands will likely streamline your workflow

Dual Pane Commands:
- Added commands "Move to Other Pane" and "Copy to Other Pane" to the context menu of any selected items

Dual Permanent Startup Path:
- Now can define a permanent startup path for each pane. Use the field Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Permanent startup path and enter both paths separated by a double pipe (||). For example, to open pane 1 always in C:, and pane 2 always in D:, enter C:||D:

Toolbar Goes Nuts:
- New buttons "Move to Recent Locations" and "Copy to Recent Locations" drop the list of recent locations as targets to move/copy the currently selected items to. Use command Tools | Customize Toolbar... (Ctrl+Shift+F9) to add the button(s) to your toolbar. BTW, the icon is an acorn, typically collected by squirrels in their storage locations. Well, that's the idea, collecting stuff in known places. The Copy acorn is blue as in blueprint (= copy)

XYplorer 18.00.0000
- Persistent Live Filters. Now optionally Live Filters persist across folders, and are remembered across tab switches and across sessions
