    Building the best file manager experience for Windows

    Mostly Windows Explorer. I also pretty frequently use Wiztree to clean up my drive. Not technically a file explorer but if the native explorer had better file management features kinda like smart folder on Mac OS I wouldn't have to use it. Occasionally I'll use files.community to see if they've fixed the slow navigation. If it wasn't so damn slow to load directories I'd probably switch to it because I really like that it supports both split screen and tabs. I also switch to xplorer2 once every couple days if I need to move around some stuff because I adore the 'Mini scrap' feature (bottom left). Basically a scratchpad, super convenient. I've tried Directory Opus lite but it looks too outdated on Win 11 for my tastes.
