Total Commander Main Features††††††
Go to How to Use in middle for instructions
This program is most useful program I have and use.
It can find any file by name, or date or contents or any criteria.
I have 100,000 files, video, text, audios on my computer,
But I can find them quickly because I use TotCmdr.
Many will load a word processor and look for a file, which is hard.
I load TotCmdr, then search for my reference file, click on it and it will load the word processor or relevant program. Whether music, video, drawing, text, I use TotCmdr first to find something that is similar or that I last worked on.
That will put me in the directory or on the file to continue to work.
TotCmdr can show, view, edit, print any file.
You can say to look for file 1 day old, or 3 months,
Or only *.doc files, or in specific directories or hard drive partitions.
Simply state if you can find something that you worked on before and continue or modify it, it is simpler then starting again.
The program is free from internet; Google Total Commander to get to www.ghisler.com
If you pay a small fee the program is even more useful.
I also get the plug ins to read abodie files, word files, excel files, html file, drawings, and muic all within the 2nd window of TotCmdr
TotCmdr opens with 2 windows.† My Computer opens with just 1 window.
With the 2 window, you can use the 2nd window to view
- the contents of a folder, the contents of a file, word, drawing, sound
- a sub group of files, files of recent dates, etc.
You can put other programs on the button bar, and take any file directly to any program.
like point to a text file and load it directly into your word processor.
Click on a folder and then type space, and you can see how large the folder is in bytes or MB
Rename files, move to different folders.† 1001 times better then using My Computer
You sort of have to learn to use the program to realize all itís wonderful advantages.† The web site shows many different screens of how to use the program, contact me for an introduction.
Many think I am smart, ho ho.† It is simply that I have and use this program that I have immediate access to ľ million file son 1 of my computers.† Access to information does seem like knowledge.
