I mostly use Double Commander. Also, the command line and mc sometimes.

I used to like Krusader, but I don't use it these days. Saw a recent article about it, though, and thought it might be appropriate to mention it here: https://www.linuxlinks.com/essential...-file-manager/

I also like the customizability of all the colors. It doesn't have a theme that works for me out of the box, but I could make it integrate well with my system theme with just a few clicks.
I already changed my "main filemanager" keybind to xfe :-)
It seems to be slow to open directories with many images with thumbnail preview turned on though...

I'd like to nominate vfu, a mature, ncurses-based file manager

Xfe all the way: light, fast, has a ton of functionality. I wish it did bulk renames but I can use other apps for that. Dolphin wins a close second for best file manager: it too is tremendously powerful. Only problem with Dolphin is it comes with 2.7 billion dependencies, but if you are already using KDE, no worries.

PCManFM. It's lightweight and easy to use. I use it with i3wm.

Dolphin most of the time in a gui, mc if I'm in a tty. Voted Dolphin since I use it far more often.

Remind me to suggest LFM for 2019. Of course, I usually change my toolset shortly after a LQMCA round.

The latest PCLinuxOS MATE edition ships with both Caja and emelFM. emelFM uses the old GTK+1 toolkit. Its look's so much different than most modern apps. emelFM is a double pane file manager. It's not the easiest to work with because it doesn't open up documents in their default apps just by clicking on the documents. You have to push "open with" and give the command of the app to open the document with that app.

Just discovered this thread now. Too bad voting is closed, would have added a vote for Worker. Been using that since my first Linux, back in 2004 or 5.

By the looks of it, Worker could have done with your support.
