I used to really like the early versions of Norton Commander for DOS. Then it turned into Norton Desktop and got the horrible featuritis that turned all Norton products into crap some time after Windows 95. I also used to do a lot more work with lots of files where were they were was actually important and knowing where they were was.Orthodox File Managers are pretty useful for everyday use and whatnot. Personally I use cracked Total Commander, but there are also free and cross-platform options like Double Commander. After learning the keyboard shortcuts you can do a lot of tasks much faster. There are also more OG, command line versions, like Far Manager or Midnight Commander, but I just can't seem to get the hang of them, too used to TC.
Now I just throw them in a directory, fuck it, maybe I'll remember where they are later.
