It has no effect if your device is not rooted. Root functions allow Total Commander to write to system folders like /system or /data. You will be warned before anything is written if the partition is write protected.

    Pretty good. Some parts of interface are kind of "sharp edged" instead of "smooth function". Great otherwise.

    apk Dear Mr/Ms Dunkley, I find that if you touch and hold an icon/button then a description of what that button does usually appears nearby. This is more or less standard for most Android Apps, not just the brilliant Total Commander, but my device is very old so maybe it is just rembering a function that does not appear on newer devices. In the latter case I find that Google is quite useful for finding if obscure or iconed/unbuttoned functionality is available in any given app and/or how to use it.

    total commander file manager windows Terrible app. Extremely unintuitive UI and even worse help files online. For example, I am trying to move some files from one place to another. I can select the files I want but none of the buttons on the button bar jump out at me as being a copy/move button. I go to the online help file for the app and it says to move or copy files from one place to another select the files you want to move or copy then tap the Copy/move button but it does not show a picture of the button so I still have no idea what button is supposed to be tapped! Throughout the help file it says tap this button or that but it does not provide a single picture of any of the buttons anywhere so you don't know what the button looks like. There are no pictures of the user interface in the help files and no pictures to show you what button does what. It just says do this then tap whatever button but what does that @#$%&#! button look like?! Don't assume the user can just look at all your buttons and automatically know what each one is supposed to do! Provide pictures of the buttons and then say what each one does. Honestly, the person who created the help files doesn't have a clue how to write a useful help file. When I finally figured out which button was the Copy/move button I then selected my files (all jpg images), tapped the button and then it gave me an "Error reading file" error message for every one of them and then deselected them. All that frustration trying to figure out how to do a simple file move and when I finally figure out how to do it the damn app can't even do it. Gave up in disgust and uninstalled the app. Complete waste of time. Don't waste yours. Avoid this app like the plague.

    total commander file manager android apk Very nice. Been using es file explorer but looks like I might switch to this. There are a couple of things that I might suggest, but over all it looks pretty solid. It would be nice though to have a backup and restore for the app settings. Thanks for this. Good job.

    total commander file manager pro apk 1) I'm still getting... "Function not supported!" "Root" Total Commander's home screen when trying to perform tasks that require root access (been like this for years so come on!). 2) Navigation history now gets forgotten whenever I navigate to Total Commander's home screen (brilliant!). 3) MORE TO FOLLOW (can no longer be bothered with being some human's unpaid tester or "guinea pig").

    total commander file manager download A real file explorer. Helps me organizing files like on a PC. I can even back up my camera SD card to USB stick via USB OTG adapter. Also, the samba plugin let's you connect to your shares. Oh, and it's my music player of choice since it can play folders and selections! "Add to queue" even let's you add more music while some is already playing. Use the "play in background" feature to trigger the integated perfect little music player!

    total commander file manager apk download Longtime Windows user: so a name to trust in an ecosystem of slightly dodgy Android file managers. Still, an important omission in the list view seems to be folder size and number of items contained. I'm not especially interested in the modification date for folders, but I do want to quickly find out where all the storage space went! Any chance of some list view options, besides order by size?

    total commander file manager android Absolute God tier file management. If you plan to emulate or just have to get into your files for any reason this is the G.O.A.T app for any of your needs. 10/10 best file manager I've ever used and I've tried more than a few.

    apk free download Application is great, I think this is the best file manager for android. All other file managers just don't have enough options and customisabillity, and don't allow you to view folders like the root folder. Overall great application.

    total commander file manager review Best file manager, but the default set of command buttons is bad, it seems to focus on latest added features, not most useful ones like "new folder", "copy file", "move file", "show menu"

  11. Luckee-avatar



    Please ! Please ! Please ! Make some changes. 1. There is some symbol to indicate the another window while using two virtual windows , remove it. 2. Let us choose and set default directories as windows that appears everytime app gets open. 3. Make a paste button so we can freely paste files anywhere without pressing any folder to get the menu to paste the file. 4. Themes should change folder icon color too. ...Thanx...

    I really like it. Retro but very useful. Worths to spent a bit of time to find all functionalities. Use it at a constant rate even for simple tasks. People with midnight commander or dual pane managers will feel at home.

    Super-useful file explorer. Takes a little getting used to (perhaps using online help) because it can do so much. I really like the ability to add shortcuts to the home screen. Even better, the shortcut icons can be customised, so, for example, you could have the Chrome or Firefox logo on the shortcut to their download folder. You can also bookmark folders. [Edit: copy and paste buttons are available in the configurable button bar at bottom (Internal commands)]. Thanks developers!

    Works as intended. No issues what-so-ever. Renames, deletes, plays, organise list options etc. It's all good. Be nice if it had the ability to trim music files too! But that's outside the scope of this app. 😁

    Does good job with otg connections and light weight, only people complaining are those who need a 'good looking' and simple ui but there are many such 'good looking' file managers on play store but few like total commander with professional features, great job developers!

    Best file manager I have ever used! And that would be since 1995. Simple, powerful, reliable! Multiple file rename, change permissions, use/make compressed files, 2-pane view, clipboard, launch files, and many others. Very honest developer, no hidden functions.

  18. Brian-avatar



    Tons of functionality & no ads, however, may request too many permissions: NEW: request delete packages • NEW: run foreground service • NEW: use biometric hardware • access Bluetooth settings • have full network access • view network connections • prevent phone from sleeping • use fingerprint hardware • pair with Bluetooth devices • install shortcuts

    Excellent work. Ever since I found out a certain other file explorer was removed for fraud, I've been having to find an alternative. Just as I thought I would never find one as good, I find this app. Being familiar with this type of UI, I didn't find it difficult to use at all, and it has the features I'd expect and then some! Truly a hallmark of Android File Explorers, keep it up C. Ghisler! I'll definitely reccommend this app to anyone that needs a file explorer in the future.

    Excellent. Truly cross-platform. As good on android as any other OS. Lacking only a left-hand browser field and saving of multiple tabs and sessions but maybe someday? Easy pn the eyes dark themes included. Get it.

    Rough interface for some operations like selection and navigating through panes and settings menus. No automatic night/light follow system setting. However, the only decent file explorer with a proper workflow grade multi rename tool.

    This app is lightweight, can perform many actions, can open/create zip files, has built-it text editor and video/music player, can backup apps to apk! The best file manager I've used. Edit: Now suports RAR, and has ability to open midi files.

    I encounter a problem when installing certain apps on a rooted device (Game Guardian for example). When running the installer apk file, the install option is greyed out. I need to use another file manager to run the package and the install option is not greyed out. I also don't like the arrows on the side of the screen as I don't use that function but I need to live with it. Besides that, combined with paragon exfat, the only file manager that can move and manage files on my NTFS usb keys.

    Despite the somewhat old-school user-interface that takes a bit of time to get used to, absolutely the BEST file-manager for Android: the only one out of MANY that I've tried that is so ROBUST and POWERFUL (and also extensible), while also not raising any suspicions for malware/adware. Does not create any suspicious directories/files in your filesystem, as do several other popular and otherwise-excellent file managers that I've previously used. If only there was an option for larger thumbnails!

    Good application although I probably don't make as much use of it as I could, sticking to what I know works. However, I have recently found a couple of problems. I don't know if the first is TC or Bluetooth; I can't send a text file with no extension but have to rename it as a .txt file. The same is true of an ods spreadsheet. Using the Open With function only displays a list of programs it has used before with no option to find another.

    The only file manager I use. Started using it on desktop when Windows replaced DOS (was called Windows Commander back then). Was super excited when they started offering it for Android and have never looked back. With the added plugins (such as Dropbox, etc.) - it is truly the most powerful tool an advanced user needs. All this for free and with NO ADS!

    Great file manager. But, alas, 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 for whole file-system; 2) there are only two tabs; 3) there is no way to backup our settings and bookmarks; 4) we don't see sizes of files/folders which we're deleting. All these above-mentioned options (and many more) are found in free MiXplorer app.

    Good but funky interface. Super slow to move large files. 10gb file is taking HOURS. Creating new folder while saving does not work. Also, size search does not work, as in searching for =/ size brings up results that do not fit search criteria. Surprised at these glitches as this is obviously an app someone has put a lot of work into, so thanks for that Dev.

    The only file transfer that makes sense, has bookmark option, ask to overwrite file (all/some/etc), very fast copying and paste.. I've tried other file manager, all of them just fancy but totally useless, no bookmark option, slow copy paste and even no option to overwrite, some of them just blatantly paste a new copy folder without permission... Too bad peons prefer the fancy one..

    This app works well and is easy to use. I added the FTP plugin and am able to transfer/copy files to or from a desktop server. Not able to write directly to the phone or tablet SD card but that is not this app's fault. Instead, I will blame Android for over-protecting me from myself.

    I change my review from 5 stars because, 1. When opening an image it didn't opened the picture that i clicked instead it opened the first picture in the folder. 2. While playing a video the play buttons are not even visible. They become visible again when i turn my phone horizontally. 3. And i another rival app named, Xplorer which had better UI. UI is not an issue (of you are trying to keep the size small), I shall return to Total Commander when first two issue are resolved.

    So far best file manager on both PC and on Android I have used. Total Commander is a file manager which has many pluginswith great features. On Android: Annoying accidental switching through left and right folder panels can be turned off in settings - If often, instead of scrolling vertically it goes horizontally through left and right folder panels without any means to return to scrolling😉 LAN plugin is must have for pc users. PC frequently disconnecting issue is fixed after last update👍

    I want support to copy locally stored files onto a remotely mounted disk via the SFTP plugin without resorting to a reverse SSH tunnel on a non rooted Android device. I am able to mount the disk on my home computer using a jumpbox running rinetd pointing to a reverse SSH tunnel back to the SSHD listener on my Linux box at home. I just want a convenient way to copy files over to a remote SFTP destination.

    Words cannot describe the usefulness of this app and how it lives to its desktop counterpart name. I've been using it for some time now, recently thinking - a multi-rename tool would be great. Guess what! After no updates for a year (they weren't required) they added it! What! A fully-featured multi-rename built right in!

    Seriously, it is impossible to do the basic task of copying a file from the phone to a network share. There is no way to find it, I already have the windows shares plug in, but it is impossible. Even if I am stupid, this thing is so basic that should be very straightforward of how to do it. Guys there is something wrong here.

    Not the prettiest, but the smartest of its kind. Sometimes I wonder if I'm on a Dos-computer, but the functionality is unbeaten by any other file manager I tried. If TC won't find a file, it's not on your phone. Period.

    Clean and simple file manager. The GUI buttons may be a bit retro, but they work. The two panel concept is a classic, and once you understand how to use it, it is fantastic for organizing files such as for moving or copying.

    Two stars because in general TC is a good app, but this app lacks basic permissions editing functionality and annoying bugs like unzipping previously chmod 733 set files will cause the extracted files to be uneditable by the in-built editor. Would be a great suite if it wasn't missing ACL management.

    Umm not very practicle. Ancient user of Xtree Gold and similar. I don't want a file manager, that is all about the file manager and poking it with modifications. I want a file manager that shows me how many files are in a folder, and it facilitates copying and moving files and backing them up. It's only good function is the 2 pane display. Beyond that it is useless.

  57. 2W0NBF-avatar



    This app is superb! I tried for days to move some homemade ringtones from the SD card to a system folder in my rooted phone. I tried about 10 different free apps and this is the only one that allowed me to write to the folder!

    Amazing file manager suite, with very useful audio/video/text tools included. You can also "share" files into Total Commander to save screenshots and attachments locally. Fixes so much of Android's confusing behavior for me.

    A must have app for more detailed files management! However system files and app files are invisible, you need "rooting" for that but it is not necessary. Very, very useful for emulation apps also! However. Use it while offline!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Doesn't detect swipes properly. If you swipe clearly but not far enough then it just goes back to current "tab". I found it unusable due to that since I repeatedly had to retry every time I wanted to switch.

    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.

    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.




    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.

    Great as a Midnight Commander substitute on mobile devices! That said, Ghost Commander is perhaps a better choice for some people as it's more intuitive to use. While I do like this app, and I've used it for quite some time, it definitely could be improved. Still, thank you for creating this app! It's great for use with apps that have no Save functionality but can Share with other apps—something Ghost Commander cannot do!

    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?

    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

  90. ageekofalltrades-avatar



    There's a bit of a learning curve to it, but this app is able to do what no other Android file manager (that I've used) can: mass extracting. Download a zip file with a couple hundred zip files of its own inside? With a typical file manager, this is an absolute nightmare. With Total Commander, and just a few taps, you're left with a folder full of extracted files. Brilliant, thank you!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 :-)

    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!

    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... ;)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

  116. blackb0x-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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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?

This is just almost there. The only thing missing is thumbnails for sftp browsing.

ESfile had it for pictures only and it was super useful.

    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.....

    Uninstalled almost immediately after first run due to a confusing message while navigating to an external sd card, something along the lines of "Android will delete all files in this folder when Total Commander is uninstalled.

I uninstalled by removing the sd card first.
