Double Commander is a sophisticated and open source file management programme that functions across several operating platforms and which offers a handy Unicode support function.
Double Panel Operation
Due to the twin panels laid out side by side, Double Commander offers a visually pleasing way of organising files that make sense the first time you use them. Whether you are using it with Linux or Windows, the twin panel format is the same. There are some handy configuring options, too. For example, Double Commander allows users to customise their columns and to work with WCX, WDX and WLX plug-ins if wanted. There is a useful internal text editor with syntax highlighting, too. If you need to rename files to conform to a new organisation system, then there is a multi-rename tool built for this purpose. Common archive file types are supported, such as zip, tar, tgz, bz2, deb and rar. Lastly, the programme offers a search operation with full text search functionality in any file directory plus a configurable button bar which can be used to start external programmes.
The Total File Management Solution?
With so much on offer, Double Commander may be all you ever need to keep files fully organised. Because all of its operations work in the background, it allows you to get on with other tasks, so it certainly offers a great deal.
