Default Directory Opus 12 released (Win)

Directory Opus is the most powerful Windows file manager that I know of. A new version is released.

I avoid using these things because I pretty much need to keep my PCs stock so I can walk through problems clients are having and know that I'm seeing the same thing they are. If it weren't for that, I'd have been ordering a 5-pack before I got halfway through the video.

Very impressive!

And that video is only some of the new features.

But you don't have to replace the Windows file manager. I use Dopus as a standalone utility.

I watched the video which has been closed captioned very nicely. It's a pretty amazing piece of software which I'm going to investigate more fully because I can see a number of instances where I'd find it useful but also, I think my sister would find it even moreso.


Thanks!

Understood. But if I had Dopus, I'd never use Windows File Explorer again and would forget how to use it (hence wouldn't be able to describe how to do stuff for my clients when they need it). I dare not. I must simply grit my teeth and when the Big Bill tells me to move on, I must. Into the big muddy!

Good point.

Here's the thread I started when I was first testing Directory Opus (aka Dopus).
