What users say


I recently started using Salamander again after having first used it in the 90's. I'm very pleased to have gone back to it as I find it much more convenient to use than the typically encountered file managers. The way it uses two panes in one fixed view makes it real easy to navigate and move, copy and paste files between two folders, especially for those who prefer quick keystrokes and short cuts as opposed to slow mouse movements.
