Re: Accessible File Explorer Alternative

Marten Post Uiterweer


I am using Xplorer2. A explorer replacement with two panes, so you see
two folders on the screen.
Tabkey will switch panes.
With f5 you can copy or f6 move. You can copy/move from pane to pane.
The program has more options for searching and the searchresults will be
displayed in a ceperate explorer like window.
It wil l call this a scrab container.

You can also place files in this scrabcontainer window. The files does
not to be from the same folder.
You can copye these files from the scab container.

You can find more information about this program at the link below.
The program is not free. There is also a lite version that is for free
or you can try the pro version for a 14 or 30 days.

I am using it for maybe 10 years now and like it.

And the windows file explorer is also good, but this program has more
options and I can do my work more quickly.

I have made a script that will make it a bit nicer in xplorer2 so if you
will try the program, then I can send you these scripts.

Kind regards, marten

Hi Steve,

Going back to Windows 7, I’ve often gotten property errors when
attempting to copy internal files to external or remote server
sources. I’m not sure I would have even minded these errors, except it
takes a while for the errors to pop up. After I tell the application
to ignore the property issues and apply the rule to all related files,
the transfer process tends to speed up, but when uploading files to a
server, the process is still laborious. Granted, that is not so much a
fault of File Explorer and more an issue of bandwidth, but in general,
I have found the application far more clunky in Windows 10 than I even
did in Windows 7. It feels unnecessarily slow, so I really appreciate
Ann providing me a copy of FileDir. I can’t wait to give it a shot
when I get home later.

Aside from how it looks, I've heard people complain about File and
Windows Explorer since time immemorial and have always asked myself,
what's wrong with it. Now I have the opportunity to ask an actual user
who wants an alternative. OK, Joe, what is it about File Explorer that
you don't like? In what situations does it respond slowly? I've been
using Windows since version 1--yes, since it was invented--and I think
Explorer crashed two, maybe three times, so what errors have you
experienced while using  it?

OK, let's get down to it then. I found this article very informative and
might try some of these.

I’m looking for an alternative to File Explorer. Ideally it will be a
bit faster and less prone to errors, but mostly, I would like for it
to be accessible with JAWS. I don’t mind paying for an alternative if
someone can show the application is a good one. Thank you in advance
for any help!
