XYplorer Portable

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, light, and portable.

  • Searches in Tabs: You often search your system for files added in the last 24 hours? You quickly need a list of all text files containing your name? Let a "finding tab" do this or any other search job at a single click!
  • The Address Bar accepts not just folders, but also files, URLs, and search terms. Yes, you can enter search patterns directly into the Address Bar. Simply put "?" between location and search pattern (Boolean operators and Regular Expressions allowed).
  • The Tree and List offer a suite of unique highlighting options to increase visual grip. Highlight Folder, Boxed Branch, Favorite Folder Bold, Highlight Focused Row, Highlight Sorted Column, Colored Grid, ... all colors are fully customizable.
  • Find Files: XYplorer features a high-end search engine with tremendous power and amazing speed. It fully supports Boolean Logic, advanced pattern matching, Regular Expressions, Boolean RegExp (the Boolean combination of any number of Regular Expressions), whole word and fuzzy matching, content search (look for text strings inside files, wildcards supported), multiple location search, a Duplicate File Finder, and much more
  • Configurable Toolbar: A configurable toolbar where most buttons have a specific right-click menu. Additionally many buttons feature a dropdown menu
  • Floating Preview: The Floating Preview, quickly toggled by F11, shows the current file in a non-modal preview window whose size and absolute screen position is stored between sessions. It supports all types of images, and snapshot previews for HTML, PDF, MPEG, DWG, etc., everything your system can generate thumbnails for. Resizing the window resizes the preview in real time

  1. hey Dave. Nice to see you again there. I had a request from the previous blog. Teamviewer 11 multilingual

  2. Just came here to see my old pal,

    just bookmarked your blog :D

    btw, where's fuken ?

    1. Fuken left his blog PortableWares about a month ago I think. Dave Green took over his blog until it was taken down by Google so now DG posts his portables here. He also updates FG's portable if/when he can.

  3. Muchas gracias, Dave Green. Muy buen aporte.

  4. Work on this please Movavi Video Converter 17.0.1

  5. Not a request, but an idea like XYplorer. It could be hard, but if you want to try, Directory Opus is one of the very top of file managers. It would really worth it :)
