 Portable Double Commander

Double Commander is a free cross platform open source file manager with two panels side by side. It is inspired by Total Commander and features some new ideas.

The file manager Double Commander is an alternative to Windows Explorer with two windows for copying and moving files. The Open Source File Manager offers an editor with syntax highlighting and contains an advanced search. Double Commander also writes file operations and supports Unicode as well as the archive formats ZIP, TAR GZ, TGZ, BZ2, RPM, CPIO, DEB and RAR.


A search function is incorporated, which lets you choose in which directory to look according to a keyword, as well as find text in a file. You can choose not to show as results files older than a user-input number of days or bigger than a particular size.


It is possible to split and combine files, open Command Prompt, add items to “Directory Hotlist”, change the program’s language and show or hide certain buttons.


With extensive Help contents, an intuitive interface and a feature-rich environment, Portable Double Commander proves to be a handy tool for people interested in managing the contents of their hard disks in a more efficient manner.
