A high level of file management can be reached with the updated version of Commander One v3.0.

Commander One is a free file manager created in Swift, has a dual-pane interface that helps you handle your files in the most efficient way. Besides being easy-to-use, the app is rather fast and powerful that offers necessary features for seamless and full control over your files and folders. - “Commander One looks like a great app to have on your Mac if you’re frustrated with OS X’s built-in file management.” - ”Once it’s installed, you get dual pane browsing, unlimited tabs, a variety of sorting options, an easy toggle for revealing hidden files, and more. It also adds a handful of new keyboard shortcuts to make moving files around a little less painful. If you’re not a fan of how Finder does things, Commander One’s a more than capable alternative.”

Best Explorer option on MAC

Moving from Windows to Mac OS and using hte Commander One File manager has been able to provide the Explorer experience on Mac. The best part has been abaility to map all clould drives and use them as add on drive and transfer files.
The two pane options provides better file visibility and options on file operations within the panes which helps ease of use.

Does it job..

A clean, functional, program. Does what it is supposed to do - help organise files. One desire - Let it also double up as a photo browser - in the same windows. Will help significantly and I will pay extra as well!
