Thank you, Alex, for such a nice explanation of it all. You did such a good job, I even understood some of it.
I really did not know it was so complicated.
Right now, I am using File Menu Tools or something like that to get rid of all the items I don't want.
If I want to try Fast Explorer, and I do, would I need to uninstall that other one first? Would there be a conflict if I don't?
Oh, and I almost forgot, I also have a vintage version of 12 ghosts just to get "copy file name" and "copy path" and "save directory list" because I know that all those things are available separately, but I didn't want to have to install 3 different ones, and I just recently experienced my first equipment and operating system upgrade in about 150 years, so I am trying to learn the modern ways, but my goal is to minimize system resource use, including space, and see how few programs I can have running, and wherever possible, use freeware.
So Fast Explorer is beckoning me, its head cocked to one side, little half smile, it is voguing a little bit, giving me those looks and stuff, but I have had software conflicts before, so that is why I am being so cautious and asking questions.
Sure, I used to just download anything that had a link, but I am just too old for that now.
