muCommander is a freeware file manager (GPL) which, like many other file managers, takes its name from the formerly popular Norton Commander which was famous for its dual-panel layout.
This file manager is an excellent alternative to the boring and bland Windows Explorer which has historically featured a non-intuitive design due to its lack of multiple panels. This basically means that working within directories and copying files between directories is faster and saves time.
Along with its intuitive design, muCommander includes support for ZIP archives (both creating and extracting). Further file archive support includes 7z, RAR, Gzip and ISO images. It can connect to Samba servers and can send files directly from the interface to email addresses.
The graphical layout of muCommander is great. It also includes color-coding. From the interface, you can directly copy and edit files or open previous. Anything imaginable in Windows Explorer can also be achieved with this file manager.
Overall, muCommander is effective and saves time. The support for Samba network drives and external drives is definitely a plus.
muCommander can create 7Z archives and create ZIP files.muCommander features and highlights:
