ScreenshotFileVoyager is a freeware Orthodox file manager (OFM) for Microsoft Windows. OFM’s are file managers using two panels of disks browsers. This dual pane layout makes very easy the transfer operations of files or folders between sources and destinations. FileVoyager contains a large collection of tools and functionality.

Story Topic:


Why Win10 Defender refuses to install this app? It says "Uknown publisher" -- nevertheless it gives a "Run anyway" button, so the issue is not very serious...

We only digitally sign open source installers except for live installers where we control everything in the package (example: Google Chrome) or very specific widespread freeware from major publisher where we have a policy to do so (example: Opera). Other freeware is never signed with our digital signature (example: Balabolka, AIMP, etc). Some publishers package their own freeware apps and digitally sign it themselves (example: HWiNFO).

1. Orthodox: 2 panes like Norton, Total,etc. etc Commanders - so far, so good.
2. Borrows from Office's ribbon menu -- and Office's sluggishness
Ribbon menu is a genetic dead end, it eats up way many pixel rows from already few caused by the odd 16:10 (16:9) screen ratio.
I guess sluggishness comes from the not top notch program library of the dev. environment.
Still it worth a try as a multiple format file previewer. Maybe others fall in love. I deleted.

You can disable the ribbon in Manage - Preferences - General - Use Classic UI instead of Ribbon UI.

(there are a lot of customisation options -- it is on the edge of being good or bad)
