Is it possible to have to panels or windows with independent folders in one Explorer window?

This is easily achievable in KDE or Gnome and has NEVER been implemented in Windows. Is there any plugin like that or other option to achieve that?

I want Explorer to work like total commander, dolphin or nautilus. Possible?

Two ways:

  • Windows way: Right click on taskbar and choose to organize windows as you want (I think tile or side-by-side). In Windows XP, you can select which windows using ctrl key and left clicking on them or do it with a taskbar group. In Windows 7, you can do it minimizing all windows, restoring the windows you want to tile and then right click on taskbar and choose the option to do that.

  • Another explorer software: try xplorer²

  • A software to do that with windows on Windows: try Moab's solution, Q-Dir

i grab one explorer window, ditch it to the left side of the screen so it maximizes in the left side of the screen.

then i grab another explorer window and ditch it to the right side of the screen .. so it maximizes in the right half of the screen.

consider this "totalcommander for the poort".

Try Q-Dir, its free

It can be configured for 2 windows if you don't need 4.
