The standard features which come with MS Windows are never enough if you want to organize your files and folders with efficiency. Sometimes you may need to work with dozens of folders, each with its own distinct content. Instead of making a mess of your desktop with lots of windows, you can make use of Unreal Commander. It is a free file manager, similar, but not identical, with the well known Total Commander. It will allow you to work with a great number of folders at the same time, all from the same window.

Unreal Commander is compatible with most of the Windows operating systems and you can have it up and running in no time. The download will take up 5.25 Mb of disk space, and installing it requires going through a standard wizard. You won't need to worry about system requirements either. The software can run fine even on a low end computer.

The interface is almost identical with the one featured by Total Commander. Your files and folders can be viewed on two separate panels, which makes it a lot easier to copy or move something from one place to another. If you have to navigate through a lot of places on your computer and two panels are not enough, you can also create new tabs on each panel by simply double clicking the area above one of them. The tabs can be locked, renamed, cloned and it is possible to close all duplicate tabs. All these tasks are accessible from a context menu, after right clicking a tab.

Besides simple functions like Back and Forward or inverting a file selection, you can find other useful options on the toolbar. A function you can also find in Total Commander is a file compressor. Just select a number of files and folders by right clicking on them and then click the Pack button on the toolbar. Unreal Commander can compress files in ZIP, RAR, ACE, ARJ and more. You can search for a file using a wide range of parameters, like size, date or content and you can even save your search query. Batch renaming is also possible. After selecting your files or folders, you need to click the appropriated button on the toolbar. In the window which will show up you can specify a name and extension which will be applied to all the selected items.

A folder synchronization feature can also be found. Instead of manually copying files from one folder to another, you can just click a button on the toolbar to bring up a window. Here you must browse for two folders and click the Compare button. The contents of those folders will be displayed side by side in a list, making it easy to spot any differences. Clicking the Synchronize button will copy all the contents from one folder to another. This can be very useful if, for instance, you need to manually back up your data.

Unreal Commander's interface can be customized in a lot of ways. It is possible to select from a number of pre set visual styles which will change the background color of the panels or you can set different images as backgrounds for each panel. You can also change the fonts, toolbar buttons and more. All these can be done from the software's general settings panel. All options are found on different categories, which can be accessed from a navigation pane on the left side of the settings window. The features and configurations you can find in Unreal Commander are far too many to count. Everything you will need for efficient file management can be found either on the toolbar or in the top menus.


Being similar to software like Total Commander does not mean that Unreal Commander tries to fix something which is not broken. It improves the looks and functionality of a popular file manager, making it very handy to have around.


Although it is an improved file manager, Unreal Commander doesn't have too many original features. With Unreal Commander's many features you can manage your files and folders with greater ease. Its familiar design makes it accessible to advanced and novice users alike.
