- My Commander allows you to create virtual drives by mapping your favorite folder to a empty drive letter. The virtual drive looks as a hard disk and behaves as a real hard drive. It makes you save time to browse for a folder with a long file path, and then provides you prompt access to the folder.
- Shredder: In order to remove files permanently (or shred) from your system you have to use a program that is capable of rewriting the files with random series of binary data multiple times. This process is often called shredding. My Commander supports smart shredding. That way, the actual content of the file has been overwritten and the possibilities to recover a shredded file are eliminated.
- JumpList: The Windows 7 taskbar provides enhanced functionality for starting programs directly from the taskbar button by using Jump Lists. You access a Jump List by right-clicking a taskbar button or by clicking the arrow next to a program in the Start menu.
- Small memory footprint: Small and smart, My Commander uses less of your computer's memory while it's running.
- Integrated Web Search: Searching the Web is a breeze with the search box, just on the right of your toolbar. Select the search engine of your choice and type what you want to find directly into the box. The browser width is adjustable so you can make it larger if you need more space.
