[Windows] Manage your files with CubicExplorer, another Windows Explorer replacement file manager
Posted By Vinay On October 11, 2012 @ 1:00 AM In Windows | 8 Comments
With higher capacity hard disk drives becoming a norm, the increasing number of files on a system is slowly making Windows Explorer annoying to use due to only basic functionality. Thankfully, there are a number of file managers available that are far better than Windows Explorer. CubicExplorer is one of them.
CubicExplorer is a free and portable file manager and browser which can easily replace Windows Explorer as a preferred file browser and comes with a number of good features including the ability for tabbed browsing.
CubicExplorer is a useful program that improves on Windows Explorer and is portable, allowing you to use it wherever you go. The program comes with a number of useful features including tabbed browsing, which allows users to jump from one location to another instead of repeating their process or pressing back and forward buttons. Bread Navigation is another way one can keep track of their steps, especially when searching for folders within folder.
Another useful feature is the Quickview section that allows you to preview images or audio files without the need to open them. Quickview also makes use of the in-built text editor to display and edit the contents of a Notepad file.
While the text editor is compatible with Notepad, one would have liked it to also provide a preview of Word documents. You can open file locations that you visit regularly by using the Bookmarks dropdown menu, a feature that is similar to restoring previous sessions in internet browsers.
CubicExplorer is a fairly useful program to have for those who often have to rely on Windows Explorer. However the lack of any help file explaining various features means that first time users will have to tinker around to get to know the program.
