I read about a nice freeware utility in a PC magazine and it's a nice alternative to the dull feature lacking Windows File Explorer.
This freeware offers a dual-pane view - nice & convenient whenever you're moving or copying files over to another directory. And best of all, i really like the nice clean interface.
Before i tried this one, i tried two others. One called Powerdesk and another called 2xExplorer. Both of them were equally as effective (and free to boot) but the menu layout seemed so clustered and so busy that it took some getting used to. By contrast the one offered by Freesoftlabs is much simpler, and designed with user friendliness in mind.
I have to admit, however, i'll probably continue to use a mixture of both Powerdesk (for it's many features which are lacking in the other two).
NOTE: The website does say it's still in Beta test version... however, i've been using it now for about a week (W2K SP4) and it's been working just fine on my PC w/out a glitch.
