X File Explorer (Xfe) is an MS-Explorer like file manager for X. It is based on the popular, but discontinued, X Win Commander, which was developed by Maxim Baranov.
Xfe aims to be the filemanager of choice for all the Unix addicts!

For a file manager whose development rests on one person, as a project which isn't strongly affiliated with any window manager or any desktop environment, this file manager is a gold standard. The computing world is becoming very mature, and simpler file managers might not cut it for the tasks you might wish to accomplish. Did you want to search for a certain file name by looking through all the files on a removable drive? You know the scenario: "I know I put it on this flash drive!", but you have tens of thousand of files on that flash device? XFE can do that (Thunar as of v1.6.3 cannot). Do you want side by side directory trees so that you can click or multi click then drag and drop files where you want them? XFE does that! Take a step up, give this humble file manager a shot!
Xfe rocks running on "Unbuntu on Windows" + XMing.
all features I need, unlike tux commander where I cannot configure shortcuts, select multiuple files... rich featured though the design=UI seems a but "back in the times" like 15-20 yrs ago, but the UX is quite good but I'm missing a panel for file options like in krusader a bit - but that's maybe only my personal taste cause I'm accustomed to that a bit
This is great, thank you! Yes, I admit it, I like Windows Explorer, esp. the relatively intuitive keyboard traversal. Nemo, at least, doesn't really give me that. I do see that Xfe hasn't been updated in over a year now. Is this still being maintained? I would like to see an option, like in Windows Explorer, to remember the last view settings for an individual folder, while maintaining the default setting. Am I missing this? Update: I just found the option to enable Shift-Delete for permanent file/dir deletion. All good there, thanks.
Excellent file manager.
