Yes, this WinFile. So Microsoft apparently went through their Windows NT 4.0 source code tree from 2007, and decided to pull this tool out, and send it out into the world. It’s available in a ‘original’ version, and a ‘v10’ version which includes the following enhancements:
- OLE drag/drop support
- control characters (e.g., ctrl+C) map to current short cut (e.g., ctrl+c -> copy) instead of changing drives
- cut (ctrl+X) followed by paste (ctrl+V) translates into a file move as one would expect
- left and right arrows in the tree view expand and collapse folders like in the Explorer
- added context menus in both panes
- improved the means by which icons are displayed for files
- F12 runs notepad or notepad++ on the selected file
- moved the ini file location to %AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\WinFile
- File.Search can include a date which limits the files returned to those after the date provided; the output is also sorted by the date instead of by the name
- File.Search includes an option as to whether to include sub-directories
- ctrl+K starts a command shell (ConEmu if installed) in the current directory; shfit+ctrl+K starts an elevated command shell (cmd.exe only)
- File.Goto (ctrl+G) enables one to type a few words of a path and get a list of directories; selecting one changes to that directory. Only drive c: is indexed.
- UI shows reparse points (e.g., Junction points) as such
- added simple forward / back navigation (probably needs to be improved)
- View command has a new option to sort by date forward (oldest on top); normal date sorting is newest on top
Which is quite the list of things to add to the old WinFile.
