I have used PD5 Pro on win98 and currently on xp home, several months
now. It doesn't take much of a file manager to best windows explorer.
I've used 3rd party file managers since DOS days and PD5 Pro is as good
as any I've used.
I recommend the freeware version of PD5 when anyone asks and money is
- I've been using Power Desk since 1998 (my current version is 4.?) and it is
infinitely superior (well, that may be a slight exaggeration) to Windows
Explorer. It gives you a two-pane option, Zip's and Unzips files and does a
variety of other things.
- I can vouch for the program, PowerDesk Pro 5.
I have been using PowerDesk for over 3 or 4 years. I first started using
version 4, I believe. That was with Windows 98/ME. When I updated to WinXP,
I installed PowerDesk 4 and when they came out with verison 5, I upgraded

I believe there has been a couple of updates and I also believe I have the
As for the program itself, I love it. I have always liked the file manager
type of program and when they did away with it, File Manager that is, I was
lost. I found PowerDesk and have been using it ever since. Just the File
Manager part of the program was enough for me, but there is so many other
features too numerious to mention. I do like the way you can convert gifs to
jpg and visa-versa. Or any kind of graphics files for that matter.
One thing I do not like about PowerDesk is the Zip interface. I use WinZip
for all my zipped files, but PowerDesk wants to be the default zip program.
PowerDesk can not handle zip within zips too good and when you get .rah and
ace files, PowerDesk chokes. But I just right click the files and WinZip
handles everything fine.
But as I said, all the other features make PowerDesk well worth it.
Hope this helps.
