    alternative file manager for Win 7 - suggestions??

    Hello,

    I'm after an alternative to windows explorer for Win7. The full row select windows 7 feature is really bugging me http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-...ista-explorer/.

    As this can't be "fixed" now can anyone recommend a decent alternative to win7 file manager?

    Cheers,

    The link you provide gives a registry tweak that will do what you want?

    OK i tried Directory Opus wasn't really for me but Explorer ++ is fantastic and does exactly what i want with a very minimum footprint plus it's free.

    Cheers Singh400!
