UE is a program designed to replace the standard windows Explorer and it has some nice features the standard lacks. You can view and edit almost EVERY type of file (texts, spreadsheets, program and html code, images) without using external programs, you can work with most compressed file formats (bh, cab, qz, jar, lha, lzh, tar, zip, zoo and more) and even convert formats or create self-extracting archives. It also has a collection of text tools, an encryption tool of some sort, a clock/calendar and, for some reason, an Ascii table. Sadly, it lacks an ftp client and other features present in other file managers. But if the standard Explorer just doesn’t do it for you, UE offers a competent solution to your problem.
It is a powerful Windows Explorer replacement software designed to replace the rather restricted features of the standard Windows Explorer File Manager. It is fully featured and offers many advantages to Windows Explorer.
With Universal Explorer, you can manage your files (move/copy/paste/delete) quickly and effectively. Plus, you can also VIEW and EDIT almost any file directly in UE with built-in File Viewer Windows! View and Edit text documents, HTML, a wide range of graphic files, programming source code and more. You can even view Microsoft Word and Excel documents without launching Word or Excel.
Universal Explorer offers a full Archive Manger (Archive Extractor) that allows you to create, view, edit, file and text search, convert and extract compressed files using multiple formats (ace, arc, arj, bh, cab, qz, jar, lha, lzh, rar, tar, zip, zoo). A Make .EXE option is included to turn a compressed file into a self-extracting Windows executable (.exe) file.
In addition, UE comes fully loaded with a wide range of great utility tools: Find Files, Search Text, Replace Text, Split File, Encrypt/Decrypt, Disk Copy, Directory Size, Directory Printer, Directory Compare, Set Properties, Batch Rename, Slide Show, Thumbview, Screen Ruler, Screen Capture, Calendar, Calculator, Ascii List, Color List, System Information and Hex Window.
