Total Commander is a software application designed to aid in file organization. In addition, Total Commander also aids in local and online directory navigation.
The Total Commander interface is very basic and simple to utilize. Some say that it is something of a throwback concerning the design of the interface. With that said, locating and categorizing files does not require a complicated interface. Indeed, a complex interface typically renders the file finding and organization process far less efficient. With that noted, Total Commander does permit a great deal of customization of the user interface. Therefore, a person can tailor the interface to meet his or her specific personal or professional needs in regard to file management issues.
Total Commander includes a more traditional dual pane designed interface. In addition, Total Commander supports an easy to use drag and drop protocol. Total Commander permits a user the ability to access main features of the application through easy to recall or memorize keyboard short cuts.
Although suitable for use by nearly anyone, another benefit of Total Commander is the fact that it is well crafted to meet the needs of different types of professionals. The advanced features associated with Total Commander are highly useful to web developers and designers. Total Commander is also well suited for programmers as well as other individuals who need to upload and download files to and from remote servers with a considerable amount of regularity.
The application permits a user a 30 day trial period, which includes all of the functionality and tools associated with Total Commander. A person must pay a relatively small fee after that point to continue using the product.
Total Commander is compatible to a broad range of Windows operating systems, including: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
A minor drawback associated with Total Commander is found in the amount of time that it takes to download and install the program in the first instance. The amount of time necessary to complete the download and installation is a byproduct of the numerous features that are associated with the application. Thus, in the end, the amount of time associated with the initial download and installation of the application certainly is not all bad news.
