Magellan Explorer

Magellan Explorer™ - Windows file manager

Latest version: Magellan Explorer 3.33 (download) (what's new)

Magellan Explorer is an advanced, yet easy to use, Windows file manager based on the powerful dual window pane concept. Previous users of the Norton Commander file manager software and similar tools will feel right at home. It can also act as a Windows Explorer replacement with a tree view on the left. Or you can enjoy a combination of both!

In addition to all the basic file management features found in Windows Explorer it also contains a built-in FTP client and archive manager (packer). All major file compression formats from ZIP (WinZIP®), RAR and ACE to UNIX formats such as TAR and GZip are supported.

An integrated file viewer is included for instant viewing of your pictures, as well as Microsoft® Office documents (Word, PowerPoint® and Excel), PDF files etc. The hex file mode allows viewing of any file type.

Advanced file manipulation tools enable you to manipulate single and multiple files with ease. Powerful tools such as group rename and group attribute let's you work on large sets of files at once, rather than dealing with each file one by one.

Locating files on your hard drive is made easy with the comprehensive search tool included, which even supports regular expressions. To make navigation easier you can "bookmark" your favorite folders and use the folder history for quick navigation between recent folders, just like a Web browser.

In addition to the rich feature set Magellan Explorer is also highly customizable, enabling you to alter anything from keyboard shortcuts and color choices to file selection method and window layout. The preferences contain over 100 options giving detailed control of every aspect of this Windows file manager.
