Why would Norton Commander be installed by default? And what does it do? – Ivo Flipse Mar 10 '10 at 14:56
I thought that it is kind of old DOS program from browsing directories end editing files. I just got to use midnight commander in Linux and I like it. I thought that Windows can have something similar. – Roman Mar 10 '10 at 15:09

You can download and install Norton Commander from here.

Instead of Norton Commander, I recommend you FreeCommander as a free and very good solution.

Thats good. Thank you. I have installed it and tried. But unfortunately it does not have a text editor with highlighting. – Roman Mar 10 '10 at 15:42
See… for all possible alternatives. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Mar 10 '10 at 15:47

you should use Total Commander . Norton Commander is old enough , don't let him "play" anymore .

A good alternative is Far Manager. It's gone open-source, and was initially by the people behind the RAR archiver. Lots of plugins are available too, allowing some quite powerful features.

Norton Commander for Windows and DOS are no longer compatible for Windows. The best clone, hands down, I have found is a free product called "Double Commander".

Double Commander versions can be found for Linux, Windows and Mac both 32 bit and 64 bit. The GUI can be customized and the product can use most Total Commander plugins. Unlike Total Commander, Double Commander is freeware.
