AB Commander Review

Fernando Ortega
The Next Generation Dual-Panel File Manager and Explorer replacement
A review of AB Commander by Fernando Ortega

AB Commander is a powerful file manager that works perfectly as a replacement for Windows Explorer, and also includes some extra features that will undoubtedly come in handy at some point.

The first highlight of AB Commander that its main workspace is a double panel similar to Norton Commander. AB Commander automates tasks which is much more convenient to copy or move files from one folder to another while browsing the contents of your hard drive is also easier.

Other interesting options include the ability to list the contents of a selected folder, compare and synchronize folders, change attributes of files, copy to clipboard, view items with full path names and more.

AB Commander also includes utilities to split large files into smaller fragments (and reassemble them later), preview images or text files quickly. It also provides a handy command line utility to execute whatever you want.

This file manager is fully customizable: from the font colors and to viewing files. The buttons and functions of this file manager are included in the status bar.

AB Commander is perfect for users who want full flexibility of file and folder management and get frustrated by the growing innate nature of Windows' built in file manager, the Windows Explorer.

AB Commander features and highlights:
  • Works with drives of any format
  • Easy to use
  • Simple use of English language
  • Extremely flexible
  • Can be used with other disk and shell tools
  • Actively maintenance schedule
  • Ready for use in business setting
  • Suitable for a wide range of file management tasks
