Manage Files with Dolphin File Manager for Windows

Dolphin File Manager is actually included with KDE which is used with many popular Linux distributions. For example, Kubuntu Linux comes with Dolphin File Manager. We can find the same on some variations of Mint Linux and more. But now we can use this popular file manager on Windows computers too.

For the Windows computers they are offering the 64-bit builds of the Dolphin File Manager. It can be easily installed just like any other application. It becomes an excellent alternative to the Windows File Manager.

The very first thing that you will notice is that it is so very lightweight and faster than Windows File Manager. As soon as you click on its shortcut, it instantly appears in front of you. Windows File Manager might take a few seconds to show up, but with Dolphin File Manager it is instant.

There are all the different file operation functions available through the Dolphin File Manager. For example, we can delete, copy, move or rename the files or folders. Dolphin File Manager also supports drag-n-drop interface. Therefore you can drag and drop files for moving them or copying them.

Dolphin File Manager

Dolphin File Manager has a split interface as you would find in older file managers like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander. We can create split interface in Dolphin File Manager and easily work with two folders to copy or compare files.

Dolphin comes with an integrated Terminal command. We can right-click anywhere in a folder and choose to open Terminal in that folder. For Windows computers, this command launches the Windows PowerShell. On Linux computers, it is going to open the actual terminal.

For some media files and documents, it can show previews or thumbnails instead of the file icons. We can turn off this setting from Dolphin File Manager configuration.
