Finger XP is some sort of Finder clone. It's not an add-on for Explorer, but a file browser on it's own.

It's missing lots of features yet, such as:
  • Drag and drop.
  • Create new folder.
  • Cut, copy and paste files.
  • Rename files/folders.
  • Delete file/folders.
  • Quicklook is not like that with folders and non-picture/pdf/document/video files.
  • Quicklook-clone should allow to play videos, etc...
  • Indeed quicklook should be a separate app :) (hey that's a good idea!)
  • CoverFlow-like view should be hardware accelerated (OpenGL + P-Buffers?)
  • res/coverflowLoading.png should be inside Test1.exe file
  • Test1.exe should be FingerXP.exe instead.
  • Finger XP should use same process with separate threads, to open different windows (for less resource consumption).
  • etc...

Questions:

Here in this thread. Your feature requests will mostly be silently ignored until I can get more base functionality done.

Very promissing (Finger XP)!! Will it work on Vista too? For now it's freezing except for its default view (thumbnails)...

I'll eagerly await for it! :)

Matonga your app is really great, thanks for all your work.

Have you ever thought of releasing an application like the quicklook provided on FingerXP?

It would be great to replace the windows picture viewer with something like that, is it possible?

Nice Finder Clone. I just have one problem, when I try to enter the coverflow mode it freezes, is there a solution to this?
