    How to use 7-Zip as file manager

    A little more than 5MB of total RAM, extremely fast to start, support for almost all file formats currently on the square, a graphics interface two columns easy-to-use menu of favorites and convenient options for moving files. We do not know if thats already the case, but 7-Zip has all its takes to perform the tasks of file manager in Windows, substituting in various circumstances the pachyderm explorer sometimes.


    In the light of this, today I offer a nice guide on how to use 7-Zip files as manager. This will change the working, but has to be taken into account that there is much more than you can imagine. Here's what to do:
    1. Start 7-Zip

    2. Go to the "View" menu and select "Command 2 panels"

    3. Go to the menu "Tools -> Options"

    4. Go to the tab "Settings"

    5. Put the checkmark next to items "Show file icons", "Show the icons of the system" and "Selecting a whole line" (the aim is to make the process easier to manage files), then click on "Apply" and "OK".

    At this point, there remains only to create a convenient shortcut on the desktop to open 7-Zip from the folder you prefer (in our example will be "C:"):
    1. Right-click in a blank desktop and select "Connect" from the menu "New"

    2. Paste "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zFM.exe" C:\ (where the content path in quotation marks, which must be maintained, is the installation folder of 7-Zip and path next to the folder to which you want to instantly access) as a path and follow the wizard.

    You can not fully replace exporer because windows is based on that if you do not want to see more explorer uses a different operating system type in mac there is a finder, etc. ...

    You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including a computer in a commercial organization. You don't need to register or pay for 7-Zip. 7zip is very complete and also supports many extensions to the archives.

    - 7-Zip now can unpack NTFS, FAT, VHD and MBR archives.
    - 7-Zip now can open/copy/compress disk images (like \\.\c:) from \\.\ folder.
    - 7-Zip File Manager now doesn't use temp files to open nested archives stored without compression.
    - New -scrc switch to calculate total CRC-32 during extracting / testing.

    Re: How to use 7-Zip as file manager

    7-Zip is a popular and free file compression program that is namely responsible for introducing the 7z archive to the computer world. 7-Zip is quite reminiscent of one of our higher rated programs, WinRAR, in interface and functionality. For a free program, 7-Zip is a decent file archiver that can compress and extract a variety of archive and file types. However, 7-Zipís standard feature set and overall user friendliness kept it from ranking higher.
