Finger Xp

Recommended Posts

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...







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

Hola matonga! :D

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! :)

can happen on XP too, it's just a preview

I had that as well (I even had that windows told me it didn't respond and had to be closed, and it didn't close )

Great Work Matonga, Its fantastic but another Finder Clone??? Coming Soon we will see more "Finders" than Agents Smith :

I belive that already we have a Finder For Windows....

Tom´s Findexer+Ksoft´s Toolbar+Mac*(Cursors+Icons)+a great Visual Style

We would only need to have a "Quick look" or "CoverFlow"

those are miltiple applications, using one thakes less memory and will be faster

also you only have to install one and not 4

Also, with Findexer you don't have drop down menus you can't get any of the views(including the new cover-flow view Matonga's working on). Even though there are a lot of Finder Clone's available, there is only one that can do what Matonga's can, and he's barely even started working on it.
