Re: Accessible File Managers

To be honest, with some configuration the windows 10 explorer is no worse than the previous v3ersions. It still can fall over and restart just like 7, and get you into a fuddle just like xp, but it does seemingly keep files in order even straight after a copy.
The only issues I've seen are the different folder types needing to each be customised separately into your chosen format then making each type the same as the others of that type, and the slight sluggishness on scrolling.

Hi Gene,
I apologize for not elaborating on the usability issues I am currently
facing, and in fact, do not intend to detail them as such either. I
reported them on the NVDA issue tracker, because they heavily pertain
to screen reading and accessibility, and hope NV Access may analyse
those issues as time permits.
Thanks Tyler and Pete for the file manager recommendations, will check
out Explorer++ in particular as well.

Dear all,
In the wake of severe usability problems I am encountering with
Windows Explorer in the past several months with which I do not desire
to put up any longer, I seek recommendations of alternative file
managers for Windows which are free, accessible and advisable. A
simplistic interface would be preferable, since I perform tasks of
little complexity on the computer when it comes to file management.
I would appreciate any assistance.
