Ultra Explorer - the ultimate File Manager?

Posted by ClifNotes, Jun 2008, permalink File Management

 

Furqan offers his review for Ultra Explorer below. The author of the software calls it "the ultimate File Manager for Microsoft Windows". Furqan certainly seems to think it's good. I guess you'll have to try it and find out for yourself.

 

Note: Where Furqan mentions he'd like an FTP client and command line email, I recommend SendToFtp and CmdMail.

It's a Windows Explorer alternative that provides a customizable interface and additional features.

WHAT VERSIONS OF WINDOWS ARE REQUIRED? 98 ME 2K XP Vista

 

DOES IT REQUIRE ANYTHING ELSE? (LIKE .NET): No

 

WHERE IS THE WEBSITE AT?

http://ultraexplorer.mustangpeak.net/

WHERE DID YOU FIND IT? Internet Search

 

WERE YOU LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS? Yes

 

WHAT ARE YOU USING IT FOR?

As a replacement of Win-Explorer

 

WHAT WERE YOU USING BEFORE YOU FOUND THIS? Total Cammander - Shareware

 

HAS IT SOLVED A PROBLEM YOU WERE HAVING?

Yes. I don't have to see nag screen of a shareware anymore

 

WHAT PROBLEMS HAS IT CAUSED? None

 

IS THE PROGRAM EASY TO USE?

Yes. The interface is highly customizable making it user-friendly.

 

You can hide or show as many of the featured windows, dock them at different places or let them float as free standing windows. The same is true for the toolbars as well.

 

You can even move buttons among the toolbars and assign your own short-cut keys.

 

DOES IT COME WITH HELP FILES?

Yes

 

WHAT FEATURES DO YOU LIKE OR NOT LIKE?

Drop Stack Window: Use it as a temporary storage area for file manipulation. Drag indiviual or blocks of files from multiple locations and drop into the Drop Stack for quick access later.

 

Favorites Window: Build a favorites tree with any object you like from the shell. The tree is fully aware of drag & drop and the clipboard.

 

Easy Browsing: Browse folders in tabs or in dual-pane, filter folder content, quickly access recently used folders, change default view of folder display etc.

 

Assign 'Win-E' key to Ultra Explorer so that when you hit 'Win-E' Ultra Explorer opens instead of Win-Explorer.

 

and more ....

 

WHAT FEATURES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ADDED OR TAKEN AWAY OR CHANGED?

I would love to have a built-in FTP client just like the one that Total Commander has.

Commandline emailer would be an added bonus.
