Q-Dir 9.01


Q-Dir Icon


Q-Dir (Quad-Directory Explorer) is a lightweight file explorer and file manager designed to help users effectively manage multiple files and folders at the same time. QDIR is a great alternative to the traditional Windows File Explorer as it has a wide range of features, which will make file management less troublesome.

Even though the appearance of QDIR is similar to Windows File Explorer, there are several factors that differentiate the two applications. For instance, QDIR follows a four-pane view technique (Quadro-View), which means it'll display four equally explorers/panels to display your files. All four panes are separated from each other implying that the users will experience less hassle while managing their files.

One of the major benefits of choosing QDIR is that it's extremely lightweight. Users can even run QDIR easily using its executable file. This will make it extremely convenient for users to instantly launch the application from any location on their PC.

In addition to the regular Drag & Drop and other basic functionalities of regular File Explorer, QDIR has several other useful features that separate it from the crowd. For instance, you can save frequently opened files and folders in the "Favourites" tab and instantly open them anytime you want in the future. This will make file management less time-consuming as you'll be able to access all your favorite files with one click.

QDIR also allows users to choose between different pane-views. Some users who find the quad-pane view a bit cluttered can also use the triple-pane view where the explorer will be divided into three different panes. The triple-pane view also resembles the appearance of Mac's Finder app and is easier to navigate as well.

Users can also choose between different color schemes to personalize the layout of QDIR according to their preference. From traditional black to barbie pink, there is an extensive list of varied color schemes that'll cater to everyone's specific requirements.

With QDIR, you can also open multiple tabs inside each Explorer pane. Each pane supports up to 16 different tabs, which means you can open as many as 64 tabs at the same time. Although users are less likely to open so many tabs at once, this feature will be highly beneficial if you ever want to multitask on your PC.
