File manager UI Icon view List view Column view Thumbnails Details + Thumbs Grouping Content dependent Twin panel Favs-panel Panel tabs

^ Via multi-panel plugins. ^  Column view is called Details view in Windows Explorer ^  Windows 7 introduces a Content view which shows details as well as thumbnails

Twin-panel file managers have obligatory connected panels where action in one panel results in reaction in the second. Konqueror supports multiple panels divided horizontally, vertically or both, but these panels do not act as twin panels by default (the user has to mark the panels he wants to act as twin-panels).

Network protocols

Information on what networking protocols the file managers support. Note that many of these protocols might be supported, in part or in whole, by software layers below the file manager, rather than by the file manager itself; for example, the Mac OS X Finder doesn't implement those protocols, and the Windows Explorer doesn't implement most of them, they just make ordinary file system calls to access remote files, and Konqueror either uses ordinary file system calls or KIO slave calls to access remote files. Some functions, such as browsing for servers or shares, might be implemented in the file manager even if most functions are implemented below the file manager.

  13. Runs under X Window System
  14. Cygwin or unsupported native port [1]
  15. Runs in text mode inside Terminal window
  16. 16.0 16.1 Windows 95 and later
  17. Capability to operate within a web browser either as Internet Explorer ActiveX component or Mozilla ActiveX-Control
  18. Windows Mobile
  19. 19.0 19.1 19.2 19.3 19.4 19.5 19.6 19.7 19.8 "Manager views" and "File feature" examples gallery:
  20. Content Dependent (System) refers to a system which attempts to detect the dominant type of files in that folder and then select the most appropriate view mode for you automatically.
  21. 21.0 21.1 Activating Image-Dired command in the graphical interface.
  22. Tab-bar mode can be activated to show the tab-bar (else it will be hidden).
  23. Optional image thumbnailer plugin since v0.3.4 (24/5/2007)
  24. Via "Mirrored Browsing" feature
  25. Requires an additional licence (purchased separately)
  26. Files matching certain user defined criteria (e.g. name pattern, attributes) are displayed in another color. Example: Since Windows 2000, the UI guide requires NTFS compressed files and folders displayed in blue, whereas uncompressed ones are black.
  27. Mass Rename is a feature to rename big amounts of files in a convenient way and including a preview, see the screenshot for an example. Common options are subdirectory inclusion, wildcards, manual mode (offering to edit names as text files in editors), counters, time related fields (eg. "date created"), path related fields (eg. "parent directory name"), regular expressions etc.
  28. Altap Salamander offers to show only selected files and hide unselected ones, also in picture viewer etc. For selection, the usual wildcards and add/subtract/intersect with 1...N stored selections are offered.
  29. ACL is dependent on the type and version of file- and operating system. Altap Salamander offers quick access to owner, auditing and permission settings in WinXP with NTFS 5.
  30. 30.0 30.1 30.2 30.3 30.4 The encryption feature in Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, and Windows Server 2003 is in fact a user-transparent filesystem-level encryption feature for NTFS. The file manager merely enables or disables it.
  31. Only picture and PDF previews are supported by Explorer++.
  32. Supported via OS support up to Windows XP only. Document scraps are not supported in Windows Vista and later.
  33. Explorer++ supports ACLs via system File Properties dialog, NTFS-only.
  34. 34.0 34.1 Needs KRename, an application that integrates into Konqueror and Krusader.
  35. Only text which is dragged from another program and dropped into a folder in Nautilus can be pasted as a new file.
  36. Path Finder apparently integrates with Knox, an encryption utility.
  37. Supported up to Windows XP only. Document scraps are not supported in Windows Vista and later.
  38. Via system File Properties dialog, NTFS-only. Must be enabled manually in Windows versions prior to Server 2003.
  39. Via system File Properties dialog, NTFS-only.
  40. Encryption is supported for Zip and Rar, other formats depend on the editable ARCHIVER.BB2 file
  41. Extensible via compression plugins, supported formats list depends on distribution package maintainer
  42. Can be done in two steps
  43. Save searches: Ability to save templates containing all search settings (file filter, metadata requirements etc.). Results of saves searches are always live, so not the results but the search conditions are saved.
  44. Also known as iterative searches. For example the ability to finish one search and then perform a new search a) only within these results (intersect the two result sets / the requirements of both searches have to be met), 2) adding to these results (combine both result sets to a bigger set) or 3) subtract from those results (original result set reduced by intersection of result sets).
  45. Altap Salamander Search offers RegExp for defining the file content.
  46. Krusader - Twin Panel File Management For Your Desktop
  47. After searching results, user can apply advanced visual filters to narrow down search.
  48. ZTreeWin provides several context specific search syntaxes that are not pure regex
  49. IFilters
