Full featured FX with nice DARK THEME and TABS

Not quite as full featured as the stock MS FX, but has an eye-friendly DARK THEME and a TABS like feature with its side-by-side two-pane viewing window... Only wish the same allowed the user to adjust the number of panes, which I think is locked in at two... But otherwise great app !

Not a Joke

Once you choose the directory, works just like the file manager but with touch capability! Been looking everywhere for something that would do this!

Is this a joke?

All it seems to do is present video and photo files with no obvious way to navigate the rest of the system's files. To Browse files it kicks me to the Windows file manager, which is just what I wanted this software to replace.

pretty nice

I reslly like the dual panes, Microsoft should do it like the.only issue, is on occasion, copy/move a certain file will crash the computer. not sure why, and oly happens with this app. but not often enough to complain, to much

Needs more functionality and cleaned up a bit.

The clutter in the UI between Windows RT and UWP. The Xbox version is also using a "windowed" view instead of the full screen.

Excellent

Best file manager I have found in the Store. Seamless connection to One Drive and Dropbox. Connects to my NAS Drive. Dual pane drag & drop file transfers. You can change the color themes and has zip archiving support. Can't think of anything I don't like. Takes a bit of time to set up the navigation pane the way you want it, but the great thing is that this allows you to customize your navigation pane anyway you prefer, using only the folders and drives you need. If you don't need archiving support or all the themes, Metro Commander is just as good for half the price. A feature I would add is when you right click on a folder add the size of the folder contents to the context menu.

poor ux

the entire ux is confusing.. the 2 column layout is the most annoying and no way to disable that.. cannot make tiles bigger has to be one size! cannot navigate all the way from my coumputer have to select and folder and opens the file explorer for that which is a nightmare to use with touch.. if it was not on sale for 10cents I would not recommend getting this. you will use the built in file explorer since this is poorly designed

Metro Commander Pro

I like it so far but I did notice one thing you could improve. I have 2 USB drives and MCP only shows the c:\. I can browse to the other drives but I would think all drives should show on the interface.

Dear Rick, Thank you for your review. You can add any drive if you click "+" button in the Navigation pane.
