What file manager are you using, /g/?
Explorer is not a valid answer.
thank mr skeltal
you look sharp today
isn't it in zombie status?
windows explorer > finder tbh
Yeah, but it's missing adress bar which is pretty important in file manager. From my short experience with OSX Finder was painful to use and I don't mind using new software as long as it's not crippled.
You can directly navigate to a location of the path by clicking on it.
Only copy and pasting paths as text is a bit more complicated:
It's in a "slow development phase" if that's what you mean.
I don't know. That's why I asked about pcmanfm. Two people mentioned it and no one mentioned spacefm. I use spacefm so it made me wonder what the deal was.
>literally nobody has mentioned ranger
jesus christ... Come on /g/
>it took this long for someone to say ranger
Sure is pleb today.
My favorite with a gui is thunar, but I'm thinking of using pcmanfm since it uses less disk space.
Is tabbed explorer on Windows a lost cause? Don't like how clover isn't integrated into explorer, and qttabbar is just intrusive.
I use Explorer++ too and it's good for day to day use but if you have a directory with a lot of images and want thumbnails, shit slows down like a motherfucker and I've had it lock up on me a couple times.
I wish Windows had at least one good file manager. I've yet to use a single good one.
This anon gets it. I think ACDSee pre 3.0 was the only file manager on Windows that correctly used ".." as "move up a directory." I love being able to navigate an entire file tree using only the keyboard. (2.2x has a bug with file size/free space calculation for large copies, but... holy shit, thanks, Anon, it still works on 64-bit 7)
Long as I'm walking down memory lane, Vern Buerg's LIST.COM was my go-to in the DOS days, and that ain't gonna work on x64. Still kinda miss it when I'm on a Windows box without Cygwin. Now I wanna give the rebooted/replacement ZBLIST done in his memory a try.
Nautilus. They made it look fucking shittier in gnome 3.14 though.
Still the best file manager I've ever used though. Dolphin has even more features and it's "better", it's just ugly as fuck.
the only one that matters
to the anon that was asking, entering paths is done with CMD+SHIFT+G
used to use caja under xfce but now I'm back to thunar again
I tried using xfm. Pic related, it's old.
even used mwm as my window manager for a while, was going for the old-school Unix feeling
I ended up just using xfm as an application launcher and using thunar for everything else. Had a nice Motif-style GTK theme so it'd look right too.
