can anyone tell me IF any of the mentioned or other file managers are independent of explorer.exe?
I am not sure how file managers work
do they uses explorer.exe to get access to the folders and files and then displays the information with their own style?
do they use explorer.exe to perform its tasks? (eg copy, paste, etc)
or are they totaly independent of explorer.exe?
I am asking this, because I see very little or maybe zero difference between file managers and explorer.exe, when I compare the speed, system resources consumption, stability, etc
I love the interface of file managers, but I really need a more optimized, stable and fast file manager than explorer.exe, that will be able for example to open fast a dir with many subfolders, etc and not just to offer customized buttons and menus
