    For those of you who use Explorer++, there is some good news.
    After a hiatus of more than 6 years since a release, it is back in beta release development.

    Apart from being a good file manager for Windows, it is especially handy for adding to bootable media as it is truly portable and configurable as the settings file (config.xml) is contained in the same folder.

    The developer has been working hard on the new version of Explorer++ in recent times with a consistent commit history.
    This is the download page with the current beta version being 1.4.0.1748 Beta 2.

    Development build links are also available at the download page.
    The development build version that I'm currently testing is v1.4.0.1946 Dev (October 02, 2022).
    It's very quick.

    It seems a nice and handy piece of software. I'd love to see a dark mode for it.

    It's a great file manager for boot media.

    I don't know of any other fully portable, tabbed file manager that works with all boot media. Maybe someone will tell me of others.

    i have argued in #2 why i have dropped it. although i saw development its still not really usable, in special not for other languages than English - its lacking additional work. i need a reliable product, eg such xyplorer or d-opus (currently both in use, d-opus more than xy). i also dropped qdir or, one commander, and xplorer² for being useless here, although some tough products but lacking features or reliability. sorry.
