Q-Dir (the Quad Explorer) makes your files and folder easy to manage, as an installed or portable Windows program. Fast and easy access to your hard disks, network folders, USB-Sticks, floppy disks, and other storage devices.
Q-Dir is a good file manager with an amazing Quadro-View technique. You don’t have to renounce the usual, Drag and Drop, all Views, and other functions of your system.
Q-Dir is one of those alternatives, as this application has been specifically developed to serve as a replacement for the default Windows file management utility. This tool allows users to browse up to four locations at the same time.
Q-Dir also supports tabbed browsing, which means one of the panels can open multiple folders at the same time and organize them in tabs, in the same way, Internet browsers do with web pages.
Plus, Q-Dir has several extras, thus allowing you to customize the application a little bit, especially when it comes to layout and the way it looks.
Q-Dir does not have to be installed and can be executed easily from the desktop, and can be carried on a small USB-stick or other memory devices.
