About the new permission "SuperUser":
This permission is now requested to make Total Commander work better on rooted devices. It tells the SuperUser app that Total Commander suports root functions. 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.
You can find some more information here:

Nice and simple.

It is so pleasing to find an app which avoids the bloatware found in certain other file managers and focusses on functionality. My only (minor) criticism is to do with ergonomics: the side scroll action won't trigger unless you swipe your finger over quite a large distance. It would be nice to just "flick" between panes.

East to use east to understand and no extra junk, however would be nice to have a tiny image viewer addon

Best - until now!

Thank you for your reply :-). Please restore the old icons, the new ones are not the least bit intuitive! This is the only file manager worth installing on your android device. It is the only one I've found that actually can access all my network drive's. Thanks for this great app. UPDATE: I'm slow to respond, sorry. Thanks foe the instructions. Happily using old icons again. :-)

Probably best file explorer ever! Works superb on android 2.3.7, but on 4.0.4 is problem with root permissions. Root detection just not work for my Xperia

Christian Dysthe

I just can't find anything better. ES maybe? No. It's not better. This one does it all so well that the others are left in the dust. I can get to Google Drive, my networks shares, do FTP. etc. etc. And it looks good with it's flatish design. So there it is. Total Commander is in full control over my files!

Not intuitive

I've used countless file managers but this is by far the least intuitive where it's not obvious how to do something basic like copying a file and the text based help doesn't help. Once figured out it lacks file copy status like throughput.

Nice minimalist design, easy to use & powerfull. i'm very satisfied, using it since 2012.
