GFYI [Official] XYplorer Pro Christmas 2021 Giveaway
[Image: 1-top-logo.png]
We at Geeks For Your Information are very pleased to announce our 
XYplorer Pro Christmas 2021 Giveaway!

[Image: 2-XYplorer-Logo-GIF.gif]

We would like to thank Cologne Code Company e.K. for sponsoring us the giveaway prizes

XYplorer is a file manager for Windows. It features tabbed browsing, a powerful file search, a versatile preview, a highly customizable interface, optional dual pane, and a large array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks. It’s fast, light, and portable.

XYplorer is a feature-rich software application similar to Windows Explorer, enabling users to navigate disk directories and perform file operations in a user-friendly workspace. It comes packed with dual panes and multi-tab support, among others.

Various kinds of information can be copied to the Clipboard, such as file or folder name, path, base, short or UNC path, along with name, bytes, date of modification, path and MD5 checksum. File information can be either compacted or extended, while items can be duplicated in several ways, by copying them with increment, current or last modified date, for example.

XYplorer makes it possible to delete locked or long files, permanently eliminate them by bypassing the Recycle Bin, swap names, alter the last modification date by synchronizing it to the current date or EXIF information, as well as display hash values in order to check a file's integrity (CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512). Meanwhile, file metadata can be copied to the Clipboard, names between two selected files can be swapped, and items can be compressed in ZIP archives.

Similar to Windows Explorer, XYplorer has multiple viewing modes available, such as small icons, list and details. The thumbnail viewing mode can be customized in terms of width and height, speed, zoom mode, cache, style, and so on. All files and folders shown in XYplorer can be sorted in multiple ways, while the columns with file details can be handpicked for display. The application also integrates a history window with accessed files and folders, putting a search function at users' disposal.

[Image: 10-tag-a-file-with-color-label.gif]

Experts PC users can write entire scripts from scratch to run macros to simplify the entire task by automating repetitive actions, which basically allows them to leave the workstation unattended. These can be saved to file and loaded later in TXT or XYS (XYplorer Script) format.

As far as program configuration goes, there are numerous options to tinker with, from tree and list view, sorting and renaming, icons, menus and mouse, to colors, styles, fonts, templates, tags and reports. For example, it is possible to customize the file types and categories for preview purposes, tabs behavior when opening a new tab next to the current one or when double-clicking it (e.g. rename, close), as well as features activation/deactivation (e.g. network server caching, tabsets, custom keyboard shortcuts).

[Image: 12-clipboard-viewer.gif]

A 30-day trial is offered to any new user during which several features are disabled, such as the possibility of customizing the main window titlebar. 

A "free-outdated version" is also offered that can be availed here. Note: The XYplorer Free Edition, has been discontinued as of 10-Jan-2017.

XYplorer Highlights

Tabbed Browsing
Users can have an unlimited number of tabs to make jumping around between folders a one-click affair. Rename the tabs, drag-shift them around, hide them, lock them, drag and drop files onto the tab headers. The tabs remember their configuration individually and between sessions, and multiple selections are retained on tab switches.
[Image: 13-tabbed-browsing.gif]

[Image: 14-change-tab-color.gif]

Users can save and load the tabset of a pane, that's all tabs including their layout (tab settings and tabwise list settings) and contents (cached search data, find settings, homes, history, etc..). This concept is also known as Workspaces or Environments. (Pro Edition Only)

While each pane always has exactly one tabset loaded, users can have any number of tabsets available on disk to choose from. The definition of each tabset is held in a folder containing all necessary information within a couple of files. The name of the folder is identical to the name of the tabset. Thus tabsets are perfectly portable and easily maintainable....)

More info on Tabsets HERE

Dual Pane
Have the contents of two folders side by side (horizontally or vertically), and move or copy your files comfortably and safely from pane to pane. Both panes are optionally multi-tabbed and can be arranged vertically or horizontally.
[Image: 15-dual-pane.gif]

More info on Dual Pane HERE

Tree and List
The Tree and List offer a suite of unique highlighting options to increase visual grip. Highlight Folder, Boxed Branch, Favorite Folder Bold, Highlight Focused Row, Highlight Sorted Column, Colored Grid, ... all colors are fully customizable. There is configurable Color Coding for files and folders. 
[Image: 16-minitree.gif]

More info on Tree Path Tracing™ HERE

The Catalog is a very powerful mouse-oriented interface. It can be toggled via menu Window | Show Catalog, and positioned via menu Window>Arrangement. By default, it is located right below the Tree. The Catalog has a large context menu (right-click the Catalog) where it can be configured.
[Image: 17-catalog.gif]

More info on Catalog's HERE

Breadcrumb Bars
A user can have a Breadcrumb Bar in each pane. It shows the full path of the current tab and lets you efficiently navigate the whole file system. Each pane's Breadcrumb Bar has its own distinctive color (which, of course, is configurable), so a user can clearly see which pane is currently active. The usage of a Breadcrumb Bar is simple and well-known. A user just have to click on any of the components to go there. Click on any of triangles (separators between the components) to pop a dropdown menu with all subfolders of the component left of the triangle, and select one of them to go there.
[Image: 18-bread.gif]

More info on Breabcrumbs HERE

Info Panel
The hideable tabbed panel at the bottom provides quick access to information (file properties and previews) and action (Find Files, Reports). If a user needs a fast and friendly image browser, sound browser, or video browser, instant, one-click preview of image (incl. PNG, JPEG, GIF (incl. Animated GIFs), TIFF, TGA, ICO, and photo formats like CR2, CRW, DCR, DNG, ERF, FFF, MEF, MRW, NEF, NRW, ORF, PEF, RAF, RAW, RW2, RWL, SR2, SRF, SRW, X3F, etc. depending on your installed codecs, using high-quality resampling for scaling), audio (incl. WAV, MP3, OGG, APE, etc..), and video (MPG, AVI, MOV, QT, VOB, TS, WMV, etc.. ... not to forget FLV/YouTube) files, with display of detailed media information.
[Image: 19-info-panel.gif]

Find Files
XYplorer features a high-end search engine with tremendous power and amazing speed. It fully supports Boolean Logic, advanced pattern matching, Regular Expressions, Boolean RegExp (the Boolean combination of any number of Regular Expressions), whole word and fuzzy matching, content search (look for text strings inside files, wildcards supported), multiple location search, a Duplicate File Finder, and much more. The "Address Bar" accepts not just folders, but also files, scripts, filters, and search terms. Users can enter search patterns directly into the Address Bar. Simply put "?" between location and search pattern (Boolean operators and Regular Expressions allowed).

[Image: 21-quick-search.gif]

[Image: 22-find-dupes.gif]

[Image: 23-power-filter.gif]

[Image: 24-visual-filter.gif]

Users can save their current search settings to a Search Template or in a Finding Tab for later one-click re-use. Very handy with complex search patterns or distributed search locations.

More info on Duplicate File Finder

Configurable Toolbar
A configurable toolbar where most buttons have a specific right-click menu. Additionally many buttons feature a dropdown menu; the Up button, for example, pops a breadcrumb menu. On top of the factory buttons a user can get/make his "Custom Toolbar Buttons", where he (the user) define how the button looks and what it does when pressed. And, optionally, the toolbar can be scrolled.
[Image: 25-customize-toolbar-user-button.gif]

Floating Preview
A preview pane separate from the main window, supporting Mouse Down Blow Up and the transparency grid for transparent images. One of the most demanded features. Now with enhanced features, handling, and speed.

The Floating Preview, quickly toggled by F11, shows the current file in a non-modal preview window whose size and absolute screen position is stored between sessions. It supports all types of images, and snapshot previews for HTML, PDF, MPEG, DWG, etc.., everything the user's system can generate thumbnails for. Resizing the window resizes the preview in real time.
[Image: 26-floating-preview.gif]

More info on Floating Preview HERE

It’s Portable!
XYplorer is a portable file manager. It doesn’t require any installation, stores all configuration data in the application data folder, and running it doesn’t change your system or registry. XYplorer does not require any formal installation onto a computer. The user just needs to simply copy it to any desired folder and run it from there. Thus, XYplorer can be stored on a removable storage device (such as a CD-ROM, a USB flash drive, a flash card, etc.) enabling it to be used on multiple computers without requiring any sort of registration or affecting the host system in any way.

Unlike the typical Windows application, XYplorer does not use the registry to store its settings. Instead it uses a set of small files located in the application data folder. 

Multi-Level Undo/Redo
XYplorer gives the user multi-level undo/redo for file operations Move, Copy, Rename, Delete, and New. Up to 100 user actions are logged and can be undone at any point. They are even remembered between sessions so the user can fix today what was broke yesterday.

 The typical use for Undo is when you drag-moved some items into the wrong folder, maybe by a slip of the finger, the famous accidental drop. The user might not even know which folder it was. With Undo, just one click will bring everything back to normal. Even on the next morning after having closed and restarted XYplorer.

Optionally the user can perform a cumulative undo, which means that he can undo a whole bunch of actions with a single click. Or he (the user)can perform a non-sequential undo, which means that he can undo any particular action from his action history without undoing the actions that came after.

More info on Multi-Level Undo/Redo HERE

Queued File Operations
Background file operations can optionally be processed sequentially (in a queue), which is often far more efficient than processing them in parallel. With queueing enabled successive operations are lined up in sequence and completed one after the other. E.g. if the user initiates a job, say a Copy operation, while another one is still in progress, the new one will be delayed until the other one is finished. This is also known as asynchronous copy.

Without queueing background file operations are processed in parallel. Parallel processing can be quite inefficient and may put unnecessary stress on your hard disks because of excessive head movements.

More info on Queued File Operations HERE

Ghost Filter
The Ghost Filter lets the user do a globally hide particular files and folders from Tree and List (all tabs, both panes). The items to be hidden are identified by wildcard patterns matching their name.

XYplorer 22.70 (11-Jan-2022)

New Features at a glance:
  • Custom Toolbar Buttons Support Middle Click.
    Now you can define a separate script that will be triggered by the middle button. That gives you 64 more possible scripts to make your life easier.
    [Image: CTB-middle1.png]
  • Tooltip Zoom.
    Now you can enlarge the tooltips by up to 400%, which turns each tooltip into a kind of magnifying glass. Relaxes the eyes and makes the file manager easier to use for users with visual impairments.
    [Image: TZoom100.png]
  • Verbatim Tooltips.
    Now you can optionally display whatever the mouse is pointing at in a tooltip. This option is aimed directly at screen readers who read tooltips aloud and makes the file manager easier to use for users with visual impairments.
    [Image: VTips1.png]
  • Hover Box Zooming.
    Now you can hold down the CTRL key to make it super fine: 1 pixel per step. And if you hold SHIFT, it's 10x faster than normal: 100 pixels per step.

Wow, what a fantastic giveaway, jasonX. I must admit I was trying hard to get my hands on this perfect software.

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”

I've tried some different file managers such as Total Commander, Directory Opus Lite, Win NC, xplorer2, but XYplorer Pro is the best by far. It's not just that it has more features than any other, but that the newest version with its sleek new interface is so much easier to use. I can find everything with just one click. It's also really nice that there are no ads or bundled offers to distract me from my tasks as it does such a great job of cataloging all my files and folders.

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”

I am a user of Q-Dir (Portable) for about a year now because when I work I open a lot of  folders that make the tray full always. I use it in tandem with Windows Explorer but sometimes it's a drag and seems to eats up ram or something especially when you open a lot of folders with Windows explorer while using Q-Dir. Also the look is not pleasing to the eye. 

In XYplorer it's a bit different but once you get the hang of it I like it! Looking at the "compare editions" you can customize keyboard shortcuts and toolbar buttons, the folder "view-contents" is a nice touch because you can see the contents without having to click it. Same with "hover box". The "ghost filter" is also a good because you can hide items you do not want others to see (if you make it the default file manager). 

I'd like to win a Pro-lifetime license so I can make it portable and use it at the office. I like using the free version but if I get the chance to win the Pro-version (with the lifetime upgrades) that is a "Merry XMAS" to me indeed. XYplorer gives you more functionality and easiness you need. And the development is active that it constantly improves. I am glad that I visited GFYI again and to see that XYplorer is up for grabs! This is one piece of software app I need!

Thanks you XYplorer for supporting us! Thanks jasonX for coming back and finding XYplorer!

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”

I tried some file manager applications before. Currently I am using Windows built-in file explorer. I like many features of the powerful file manager XYplorer Pro. This includes easy find any file, info panel, preview, unlimited number of tabs, dual pane, multi-level undo/redo for file operations, portable with no installation required, background queued file operations, ghost filter. In addition, it is easy to use, customizable interface with no use of the registry to store its settings.

Lifetime license will let me use this wonderful app on all my computers and in office and enjoy all future updates and easy create portable app

Thanks for the contest and Merry Christmas to you all!

I currently use Windows file explorer. Previously I tried using Total commander. Compared to them, XYplorer seems to be a hybrid of these two programs, which affects its functionality and user friendliness. What I like about XYplorer file manager is that it has portable version so it doesn't require any installation. You can also use it on any computer in portable version. A very cool feature is the bookmarks, which work just like those in web browsers. They allow you to work with multiple folders. The program also has a built-in graphics viewer, video and audio player, as well as an advanced and fast file search and duplicate file finder. XYplorer has a powerful internal search engine. The program provides fast, simplified file name search with support for custom search templates. You can also set keyboard shortcuts. Frequent updates are also a plus. Would like to win this program as it would give me the ability to use it on all home computers with lifetime updates.

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”

I'm just using the Windows Explorer and never used any other file manager since then.
One feature I like with XYplorer is Ghost Filter which lets the user do a globally hide particular files and folders.
I want to win a license of XYplorer Pro and compare it to Windows built-in File Manager/Explorer.
I want to see some differences between the two when it comes to file management.

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”
I am using XYplorer since 2015 (Giveaway version) , It makes my daily PC use very easy,compfortable & hassle free! XYplorer lets me preview files,change attributes and navigate the entire file system in the easiest manner.It has a powerful file search, a versatile preview, a highly customizable interface, optional dual pane and a large array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks. Another notable feature of my choice is ,its portability ,I can keep it on my flash drive & use it on my Home PC where thousands of Image,Video,MP3 files i can easily access.

"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”
I am currently using windows explorer currently.
I like that XYplorer Pro has support for preview of all kinds of files that I view like office files(word, excel etc.) images etc. without opening them and has support for multi tabs for quicker file and/or folder operations like viewing, copying etc. ,unlike in windows explorer. I also like that it has file contents search option for finding  files on the basis of the content inside them. I also like that it can be used as a portable app without installing. I would like to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro for using a file manager which has more features than windows explorer and can save me time by allowing me to perform more operations like copying, moving files etc. in less time.
Hello and Happy New Year.
It`s been a while since i was here, i had some medical issues and i am glad that all went well with my issues. Thanks to the organiser and to developer fo this contest.
"What feature/s of XYplorer Pro do you like best as compared to your existing file manager application (state your app) and why do you want to win a lifetime license of XYplorer Pro?”My favorite feature of XYplorer Pro is its ability to filter files by type and date modified. As a fan, I often need to find the latest version but with other file managers, this can be tedious. With XYplorer Pro, I have the power of search at my fingertips. The only downside is that it doesn't offer an option for cloud services.
I absolutely love the filtering functionality of XYplorer Pro. It is so nice to be able to scan through my files and folders quickly, especially when I am looking for something specific. The best part is that it searches exactly what I need without getting too caught up on any of the actual file names or extensions. I am currently using the Windows built in explorer in a not optimised mood.
