I am not sure if most people still use Windows Explorer, but I gave up on it some time ago. I found an app called ExplorerXP at http://www.explorerxp.com/ that is fast and free. I had found that regardless of my preference settings with Windows, some folders were still hidden by Windows Explorer. Not so with ExplorerXP. As the name implies, this app is only designed for Win XP/2000.

Just thought I would share one of the apps I find very usefull.

ExplorerXP looks promising but not quite a replacement for explorer yet for me.

A good alternative is xplorer2.

Hi Twister

What features do you like the most about ExplorerXP? Have you used other Explorer replacements in the past?

This is the first of the replacements I have used for Windows Exploder. I needed to delete a file that was in a protected directory that Exploder would not even allow me to see. After looking around for a couple of hours, ExplorerXP seemed to have the capabilities I needed. I think one of the best features I found with it is the tabbed interface that also remembers the directories that you were in, unless of course you close out of that directory. Since I started using ExplorerXP, I really have not found anything it is lacking that would prompt me to look to replace it.

Hi again Twister,

Coincidence strikes again. I asked you that question for a reason. Earlier this week I saw ExplorerXP at one of the freeware sites I monitor. I bookmarked it because I wanted to try it sometime. As it stands now I can't use it. My PC is using WinME.

Do you mind if I publish your comments in next weeks CNNL?

I do not mind at all if you use my comments.

I used to use WinMe at one point, but it was never very stable for me. After about a month I wiped the drive and went back to 98SE (until XP came out). One of these days I will get serious about Linux, as I have Debian installed on an old PII 300Mhz box that I have sitting around taking up space.
