    One heck of a file manager in low size 👌! Just improve the stability with ftp plug-in (reviewed there). & upgrade the app a little more if you want. Such as "open file with". Currently it only shows a few app with association (maybe; didn't notice)! It should show the entire app list instead. Or just add "open as". & Thanks for the app!!

    apk For me it is the best file manager. However, after the last version or even few versions it was impossible to create or edit FTP, LAN or other connections. Without this functionality the Total Commander made me to switch to another file manager and this was really disappointing. Fortunately, I found other permissions for Total Commander FTP and LAN plugins in the system settings. When I switched on the permission to work in the background, the problem was solved.

    total commander file manager windows Fix root function in Android 10 and this will go back up to five stars. I can't install from Total Commander any more, even with permission granted. Regardless of files' properties, they won't install. Files I push to Download using adb arrive with permissions 660; when I attempt to change them to 770, Total Commander reports: "Function succeeded!", but the permissions are unchanged. The native file manager is unspeakably awful, but I can install apps with it.

    total commander file manager android apk I'm using this little Masterpiece since 1996 or 1997 (as a replacement for DOS-NC (5.5?)) or so when it still was named Windows Commander. My father realised half a year ago that there is a Windows Explorer ( lack of support for MTP devices on PC is the only thing to criticise - this is how he found out ;) ) because I told him to use wc/tc from the beginning on Windows 98. And I introduced it in the company I was working for, 10 years ago and of course bought a licence for my private copy... On Android it's much better then anything else I've tried. I love the "share via WLan" feature - I think I will die using TC... ;)

    total commander file manager pro apk Love this app. works fine on my other, older Android. But for some reason it doesn't work on my new phone. I use LAN plugin to watch movies from my Windows file server. The app is so broken in this device, it doesn't even ask me what the name, username, password of the LAN PC. just hangs there. and then it says "another process is going, wait." it does this alot, on all new devices.

  6. guest-avatar

    total commander file manager download When I tried to rename a file on my SD-card the app helpfully explained that on Android 5 (and later versions) the SD card was write protected, and also told me how to give the app permission to do what I wanted it to do.

  7. guest-avatar

    total commander file manager apk download Thanks a lot for this! This is the only app out of maybe 10 I tried that actually works for editing the creation date of a file. Just one request: Could you add the functionality for editing "last edited" date too?

  8. guest-avatar

    total commander file manager android This is definitely the best file manager! Light weight, easy to operate, and obvious at a glance. It's one of the best app that has accompany me through these several years.

  9. guest-avatar

    apk free download I've tried other file managers for Kindle & Galaxy but this seems best. It copies & pastes into the same folder with an added prefix to the dupe. Other apps I tried can't do that, or have too many needless features. TC has been on my Kindle for years.

  10. guest-avatar

    total commander file manager review Excellent App. Just upgraded from Android 6 to 9 and needed a new file manager. This one connected first time to our networked devices. Clean interface, no fuss, bookmarking good. Fast.

  11. guest-avatar

    Recently changed my old NAS server, and now I can't delete the old server, and can't open settings in LAN plugin (operation in background error). Worked great before, hope this gets fixed soon.

    This app is pretty fantastic!! It's easy to use and makes navigating our ohone handling our files very easy. Though I never adopted the PC version when I saw it ±15-20 years ago, it's really great for our cell phones! Thanks, dev.

  13. guest-avatar

    See the more complex a software is, the more diverse it is. And this app is a great example to it. It is purely for power users. It is also compatible with exfat/ntfs for usb which is a must for those device which supports only fat32. Loved it. Thankyou for making such useful tools.

  14. guest-avatar

    Hands down, best file browser & added functionalities! A must have, you can peek into every nook and cranny, set defaults (if allowed for non rooted), and edit & view text. Add ons available. Not the easiest UI but when you need to get down and dirty pretty is nothing!

  15. guest-avatar

    Really useful, even using a non- rooted device. First used it in Windows and loved it -- Android version is great. A small learning curve, but worth it for powerful functionality way beyond a standard file manager.

  16. guest-avatar

    With all respect, on 2020 it's not time anymore for such prehistoric UI. And if then basic functions like sorting videos for length are missing, I don't see the point bothering. I'm not aware of any reasonably important function which other file managers like FX don't offer. They lack the sort by length too, but at least their UI is much better.

    Love this app. Both windows and now android. I have replaced my windows fileexplorer with TC by default. ...... One feature request which I miss in android is multi-rename. I hope in future releases will get this. With the latest updates I was very happy 😂

  18. guest-avatar

    really powerful! hate that i have to kill the app though when letting it go idle while on a sftp server. when you return to the app, sftp no longer works and you have to kill it.

  19. guest-avatar

    Indisputably powerful, but also opaque and clumsy. For example, moving files is a real pain. After selecting a file and move, you don't see a clear folder tree from which to pick your destination, nor do you see an "ok" or "green tick", or other action confirmations, in order to complete your transaction. Other file managers do this common operation much better. Further, when you find a file, and press "i" for information, it does not tell you which folder the file is in - strange.

  20. guest-avatar

    Another operation is active in the background. Please wait for it to finish. That's the error I get. I don't have anything doing in background, copying etc. Can't create any folder. What to do?

  21. guest-avatar

    This app has been on my phone for my last 3 model changes and honestly I don't even bother with the native file manager anymore. One thing I would like to see in the future is thumbnail view, or at least small thumbnails for NEF and ORF files. When I need to transfer an image off my mem card in the middle of a game to send to the PR team, it would help to not have to view it first on camera, memorize the file number, then use that to port it, one-by-one to my device.

    Android 10, It's impossible to create ftp, sftp, webdav profiles. Also not possible to install app by tapping on apk file. Please fix it, it's a best file manager!

  23. guest-avatar

    The thumbnails are not present for the files (videos) in the hard disk making it difficult to search. Else the app is fine

  24. guest-avatar

    The Total Commander is best if it's class for Android and Windows. I use the windows version licensed for more than 17 years now. The Android version is furthermore capable to copy documents of all kind from internal to external MicroSD memory, and fast on top. This is very useful! Also the add-ons for FTP, network and clouds work well. Thank you, mister ghisler, that you further develop this copytool like a Swiss knife!

  25. guest-avatar

    This app does not have ads! It has free ad-ons if you want to extend the functionality (e.g., a wifi plugin). It's the best, quickest dual-pane file manager out there.

  26. guest-avatar

    Good functionality, but lacks ssh reconnect ability as AP associations change, or IP address changes. Would be more robust if that were added.

  27. guest-avatar

    Sometimes the screen is too sensitive and decides on switching to the other tab when your scrolling but then you swipe to the left and then your back to where you just were

  28. guest-avatar

    This file manager is in my opinion not always the most comfortable one to do file operations with. Yet it comes with a lightweight but fully blown media player under the hood that can play virtually everything. And think of the many plugins! There is no Android device in my stock without TC :)

    This is for me absolutely a must-have app ! It's like the Norton Commander for the first PC's and the Windows Commander that came when Microsoft introduced Windows. This Total Commander for Android does the same job. It works very 'smooth', fast and no crash at all since I installed it about a year ago ! Recommended as Standard Tool for each Android device. I installed it on a Samsung Smartphone and an ASUS tablet.

  30. guest-avatar

    The functionality of the app is fine and much better than what ships with the Android os. What's not fine is the app doesn't close and remains running in the background until you kill it via the Force Stop function in App Info. I find that whenever my system is running sluggishly and freezes this app is running in the background. Killing it helps my system return to normal.

  31. guest-avatar

    Might not be the most user friendly for those looking for a simple experience but it does pretty much everything I expect from a PC file browser so it works great for me.

  32. guest-avatar

    Developer is too busy... Some very basic things are absent in this app: 1) we can't set properties (sort order) for particular foldes, but only to whole file-system; 2) there are only two tabs; 3) there is no way to backup our settings/bookmarks; 4) we don't see sizes of files/folders which we're deleting. All these above-mentioned options (and even more) are found in free MiXplorer app.

  33. guest-avatar

    I've tried other file managers, but this one tops them all. (I even paid for the Windows version!) One thing that I miss is the file descriptors. Ah, well... --Rich

  34. guest-avatar

    I've been a user of this type of file manager since midnight commander was available for dos and win 3.11! This in an essential tool for navigating the file system of an android device. Thanks for producing a quality prog!

  35. guest-avatar

    Very good. But needs to retain info on two things 1. File opearations copy/move option to retain selections (or if move/delete leave failed tfrs selected) 2. Reading large files eg 27mb of my 32mb sd card If i have to wait f-o-rever for tc to scan on my econobox cell cant tc cache the results so if i go in and out of a subfolder i dont have to wait again? Or maybe open subfolder in a new instance if tc?

  36. guest-avatar

    Using this app for 5 years now, it has never disappointed me. I use it in file management mostly and do a bit of advanced stuffs using it. It's literally a must have for every android device. Nice one devs, keep it up! from 4 to 6 stars (don't mind that the 6th one isn't showing😉)

  37. guest-avatar

    Why not exist "view" file feature in popup menu? Only "edit" exist, and "edit" not work on many files, because of permissions.

  38. guest-avatar

    Was able to use it to open a file that I have an app for but Android crapped out and couldn't make the association by itself- even though it has for years.

  39. guest-avatar

    Michael Berghuber


    Really the best file explorer with full function set especially with the plugins for network, Google drive and file transfer to other devices. Optimised view for smartphone and tablet. And that all for free and also free of ads!

  40. guest-avatar

    Installed this to support paragon. When ever tried to copy file from mobile storage to pendrive. It gets hung and was not moving from 0%. Paragon also didn't or no refund option. Hence 0 star.

  41. guest-avatar

    Nice App but i found a problem which is very annoying, this problem is happening in my phone. whenever i rename a folder in my sd card that folder bcomes unaccessible 0kb file of no extension. bcos of this problem i lost most of my data. Kindly correct the problem.

  42. guest-avatar

    Superb....... there is a bug, I can't open pdf in drive pdf viewer, it just opens and suddenly closes automatically.

  43. guest-avatar

    Complicated and confusing. Few instructions or dialogue to figure it all out. I uninstalled within 5 minutes. Definitely not intuitive for me. Sorry. Good luck.

  44. guest-avatar

    Great file management app. Only thing i could use some help with is how to copy the file path to the clipboard. Other than that most feature compete of any that i have tried.

  45. guest-avatar

    Looks cool in many ways. However, not working well in my Xiaomi MIUI phone: Google drive plug in not able to access the drive (while other apps can), and Cancel button has no effect. The app is useless after that.

  46. guest-avatar

    after last update, pdf files couldn't be open directly from TC.

  47. guest-avatar

    Works with RAR files very well. Searching recent files is nice. Not really that hard to figure out.

  48. guest-avatar

    Lightweight app with powerful features, although the interface has a steep learning curve due to heavy use of icons. Very impressed with the media/music player and especially the ability to create playlists, which is a rarity in other file managers I have tried. The only thing I long for is the ability to manually rearrange the songs in the playlist.

  49. guest-avatar

    It's hard to work out whether this is any good, as it's too detailed / complicated, and not very user friendly. I only wanted to be able to connect my Android phone to a media server attached to my router. I ended up using File Explorer + which did what I wanted very slickly and far easily. I don't even know if TC can do this, as it appears to require a plug in if it can.

  50. guest-avatar

    Needs some interface improvement. How about removing the navigation bar on the right so that I can instead use swipe to change panels? I can't remove it right now. Also need to be able to customise thumbnail dimensions for min, max, etc. and be constrained by its column. At the moment it misaligns the filenames. Also need to be able to adjust columns shown and their size and position. Also, needs to share selected files with other apps e.g. whatsapp. Other than that, I really like the the functionality and options for plugins. One of the best file managers for Android.

  51. guest-avatar

    It's a great app, easy, powerful, everything works right, lots of features, never crashes, a great time saver for those who work directly with files and directories on Android systems. The app has some features that work only on a rooted device. If you try to change file permissions using TC, it will silently fail. So, a notification might be nice for unrooted devices.

  52. guest-avatar

    i liked its function of selecting files using text and *. thousands of files could be quickly selected and manipulated. saved me much effort. most other file managers didnt have such function.

  53. guest-avatar

    Excellent. After trying about 10 different apps this was one of only 2 to open files downloaded to a hard drive off a Windows laptop. The other tried but kept crashing. Thanks guys yours works fine.

  54. guest-avatar

    Installing it is like being released from jail. It's not just a file manager, either: this app does everything. And I do mean everything.

  55. guest-avatar

    This is the simplest yet most complete file manager I've used. Move, copy delete, send via Bluetooth- and it's free 👍

  56. guest-avatar



    Something's wrong. Whenever I copy files from internal storage to SD card, their attributes are changed. For example, on moving mp3 files their metadata (artist name, album name etc) disappeares while on moving them back to original location returns the metadata. On moving PDF files, they can't be opened with drive PDF viewer( it throws corrupt file error ) but can be opened using other doc viewers. Despite this problem app is very good and had all the features in such a small package size.

  57. guest-avatar

    A great app that I have used for years. Just noticed however that it seems to lack the ability to do file selection in a panel based on file comparison with the other panel. For example tag files in the left panel that are missing, newer or a different size etc. to the files in the right panel. If it does support this then how do I do it?

  58. guest-avatar

    Very useful manager with useful add-ons. My trusted manager for several years, moving whole folders to Google drive. The last update however when I changed the settings to show only one bar for both screens and no top bar, I cannot find the settings button...anywhere! Is there anything that I'm overlooking or the settings are not accessible anymore? I even removed & reinstalled it, thinking that it will bring back the interface settings to no avail. Thanks for making a great manager!

  59. guest-avatar

    Some settings changed after using tc players equalizer settings; other than that it's best I've used yet now 4 years

  60. guest-avatar

    Terrific! Was using Astro and My Files for years. This is way superior. I can clearly see the entire file system and directory paths.

  61. guest-avatar

    Very solid app. TC can play music files (mp3, flac, ...) from network shares with the built-in player, which works very well. Only issue I have is it doesn't automatically reconnect dropped connections. Could use some more buttons or long-press actions, especially for 'rename', as well as multi-line edit boxes.

  62. guest-avatar

    Love it and dumped ES PRO for this. Seems quicker to me. You need this its free and Mr Ghisler has been doing this for a long time. Well three months on and not a foot wrong. Downloaded some of the addons. Got me reminising about file and memory managers on DOS. Wow were have the years gone... I would happily pay for total commander but its free.

  63. guest-avatar

    finally, it seems, that data between internal phone-memory and micro-sd card can beeing copied/moved/deleted/make folders without rooting/modifing or some other workarounds. this is really great news! (used nokia 8 ds smartphone and android 9.0.0) also many good features are now present in ths release and it's very useful now. networking works fine, too. so, I deleted all competitor apps, do not reqire anymore.

  64. guest-avatar

    Awesome, powerful file manager that was good for Windows Mobile and is good for Android. The UI doesn't quite follow "modern" Android guidelines, but that's my only quibble about it. All the features are fast, stable, and fairly easy to figure out. Its SMB plugin is a lifesaver for me. Wonderful tool, highly recommended to the power user.

  65. guest-avatar

    It is the best file manager. Reliable, and I have not found any feature that is missing and cannot be added as a plug in.

  66. guest-avatar

    I don't know if I am missing something, but I can't make this app see network storage which is a big disappointment. It does allow me to access an OTG connected external hard drive however - but only after having to pay for the privilege! The operations are far from intuitive - it took me forever to work out how to move files, and I discovered that when you select a folder to move a file to, it moves the file to its parent folder, rather than into the folder itself!

  67. guest-avatar

    Not perfect, but a revelation if you have been trying to manage files through a proprietary phone file manager. Thank you!

  68. guest-avatar

    Can't copy /paste into an empty folder. Critical oversight.

  69. guest-avatar

    Does the job, no cloud support. Confusing (grammer) instructions to copy files to SD card on my Samsung Galaxy internal storage. It looks like a folder I created with T.C. has ties to the root, even though it's a level below it. Awkward to use ... Several display types are available, but not all equally accessible. Uses BT for interacted transfers, requiring special permissions to write to the other target. I think my device requires that step.

  70. guest-avatar

    Thank you very much for this flexible, handy, stable app.

  71. guest-avatar

    So far, this is outstanding and excellent file organizing app. Mighty mighty.

  72. guest-avatar

    Non-Fat. Quite Lean. Old School (if you ditch the new icons in app settings). Which is how 'Folder players' like it. The in-app player is quite impressive, great sound and LOUD if need be. Editing your collection/files is a breeze ! But more importantly TC is most at home in tandem with popular players like MX Player, Gplayer (TRUE Popup, Resizable, Multiplayer) at the Market. If you play from your folder (and most users do ! ), then you should be playing from Total Commander.

  73. guest-avatar

    One of my favorite apps ever, on Android as well as on my PCs for many years. Why only 4 stars? There are frequent issues with restricted write access to my ext. SD card (Xiaomi Max2-Android 7). Usually I have full write access to the ext. SD card via TC, but more often than not it doesn't work anymore after a reboot and I have to reboot my device a number of times until it works again. To the dev: please solve this and I'll give you 5 stars gladly.

  74. guest-avatar

    i always have to trudge thru the best file explorer on a reinstall or a new phone ever since Astro and Es Explorer sucked. i seem to keep ending up on this one which is good. or Root Browser (either classix or the remake). i think this one is what does all what i want. Only downside is the plugins havent been updated in a while. and looking at the changelog this app itself. though still the best. unless i go load an old copy of the other two. which'd be the same situation

  75. guest-avatar

    Best file manager for Android. Works a lot like the Windows version which is a good thing. It doesn't have a flashy UI but instead focuses on features which I wish more apps would do. With plugins it has also replaced dedicated apps for cloud storage and LAN/SMB access makes it so I don't have to plug in my phone to transfer files from my home PC.

  76. guest-avatar

    Fully satisfied until quite recently when it stopped being able to write on my SD card (though storage permissions are given). Other apps can. A file manager should definitely be able to. I'm puzzled. What has changed?? (I am using Oreo.) Edit: reinstallation seems to be resolving this problem :-)

  77. guest-avatar

    Excellent app! File manager has capabilities you would expect on a PC. Easily navigate your device's file system. I installed this app specifically to allow mobile phone connections to PCs on my LAN. This app, together with its free addon called "LAN plugin for Total Commander" enable easy LAN connections. The app uses SMB2 protocol which is secure. And file transfers take place at full WiFi speeds. For the first time, I have easy and fast access to LAN shares. Excellent!

  78. guest-avatar

    This is one of those times I feel like a complete fool! I stayed away from TC for Android because I thought it had ads. I only had to read the details to realize it does not! I have cheated myself out of years of access to a good file manager.

  79. guest-avatar

    Incredibly unintuitive. Spent over 30 minutes simply trying to copy a file from one location to another. No useful documentation or tutorials online. Gave up and uninstalled.

  80. guest-avatar

    App doesn't work properly on Android Q. That's sad. I'll give 5 stars as soon as you fix it

    Best file manager used so far (been using android apps for 5+ years). Lots of features. It looks like the developers have crafted this app with a clear focused concept of function, rather than gimmicks. It has everything you want on the screen, without any unnecessary clutter.

    very very useful, simple, easy to use. Ability to create folder shortcut, file shortcut to HOME SCREEN / BACKGROUND, and to WA menu

    From MS Dos and Windows, also on Android, the best file explorer viewer and more in one!

    that was very good app until it not started deleting my wav files I am suspecting the media player module is responsible for the data has been lost twice. luckily backup has been made. but I unistaled it - too risky to use even if it has many useful functions and UI is very good. but loosing data not acceptable sorry.

    Excellent tool to access "difficult"parts of your Android device (installed apps, for instance).

    Great program! Copy & Paste is a bit obscure (tap & hold on the top directory bar to bring up Paste), and SFTP plugin defaults to a non-standard setting which prevent proper communication with many devices (check your settings!), but otherwise this program works, without spying or unnecessary garbage bloat.

    Very cool app since Win95. But now there is a problem on some devices with folder renaming. After renaming a directory, it's seen by the app as a file. Others file managers see the folder without problem, as folder with a new name. I have 3 Android devices. Such problem is only for Xiaomi Redmi 4X, Android 7.1.2

    Cool file manager which could have 5 stars. After update I faced a problem. TC don't see folders/files after renaming them. 2 stars.

    This is always been my favorite one. It just seems to work better than the rest.

    I've always liked using total commander as my file manager. However, now that I've been on the Android Q beta for a while it seems Total commander can't get the right permissions so I can't access any of my files with it. I hope this gets fixed soon because it's currently unusable.

    App will not change file properties. The only reason i downloaded...does not work. My phone is rooted so there is no excuse for this.

    Great file manager with no ads (play store lies). Does almost everything, not just the user level files. Only gripe is that the default toolbars contain only the least useful commands and any option to change that is buried very deep.

    This stupid horizontal scroll bug survives though ages. It makes usage such annoying. I mean when you accidenlty swipe for 1 millimeter left. Horizontal scrolling is locked....

    This app WAS great in Android 7, but now in Android 9 often gives an ioexception (not seen in any other media app) after fully playing a song(s), stopping me from playing said song(s) again unless I remove and re-add to queue. This drastically slows down app usage and adds frustration (for me) to a once great app.

    Best file explorer on mobile. No ads, totally free and full of useful and great features.

    Very good functioning file manager that can browse network drives. 👍

    How to create a text file in folder A: long press folder B inside folder A and choose 'New text file'. So I can't create a text file inside a folder that has no subfolder in it? A more reasonable place for 'New text file' button would be in the upper-right menu, where the 'New Folder' button resides.

    The best file manager for Android and windows... I have been using total commander for over 20 years on my windows desktop and also android for recent years For people who need more advance file management needs and knowhow, this app from Christian is probably the best.... some reasonable file mgt knowledge to not accidentally create a mess..... One wish is to display files with favorite tabs and view in thumbnails (hint : a replacement for onenote/ Evernote) by accessing cloud files direct

    Very powerful and useful, but it takes a Ph.D. to understand the user interface. It is so painful, with no quick and easy actions to copy and paste or cut and paste files and folders from one place to another. It is as if it was deliberately designed to be as obtuse as possible.

    This is the only app which helped me in extracting images out of zip while preserving the timestamps. Other apps i used change the date to today causing my gallery to fill up with old images. Thanks... btw, why don't you guys change add plugins to more plugins or something else if that's a problem?
