A dual-panel file manager for Windows

Saladin is a straightforward dual-pane file manager for Windows.

The program opens with two independent Explorer-type views on your file system, and both work just as you'd expect. Double-click files to open them; right-click to access the Explorer content menu, double-click folders to navigate through your drive; multi-select files with the keyboard, and drag and drop to copy or move files from one folder to another. You'll be using the program right away.

Tiny buttons to the right of each pane display a history and a simple bookmark tool. You're able to easily step back through folders you've accessed recently, or add the current folder to a Bookmark list for speedy recall later.

There's another bonus navigation feature in the ability to set a custom Home folder for each pane. If you always copy to a particular backup folder, for instance, you could make this the home for the right-hand pane, but use something else entirely on the left.

The toolbar displays buttons, text descriptions and (sometimes) a keyboard shortcut, again making it easy to understand how the program works.

The toolbar has View, Edit, Copy, Move and Delete buttons, for instance. These all work as described (multi-select files, hit Move to move them somewhere), but many have additional options. The Copy and Move function can copy files to the destination folder or clone them in the source; the View function supports viewing multiple selected images or plain text files; Delete can move files to the Recycle Bin, or delete them permanently.

There are bonus tools to open a console window at the current folder, pack files into a ZIP, run simple searches and - if all else fails - open and use Explorer, instead.


Saladin looks a little basic, and it doesn't quite always work as you'd expect (you can't multi-select files by dragging with the mouse), but overall it's a likeable file manager with some time-saving functions and features.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
