Publisher Description

SBS Explorer handles Windows Explorer (the OS file manager) from the system tray.

Click to open one centered Explorer.
Double-click to open a pair of side-by-side Explorers.
Use the Menu Builder to create custom Explorer configurations in the context menu.

Each session (single or double) has its own tray icon.
Click icon to hide, show, join, switch, etc., sessions, independent of other windows on screen.

Make a double session out of two singles.

Windows Explorer is an excellent file manager. But when you navigate to the same location over and over again, you wish you could do that easier. SBS can start with Windows. You click its icon in the system tray, or choose from its context menu, to open Explorer sessions.

The Menu Builder is where you customize the context menu. Add double or single sessions. An alternative way of using SBS is to add just single sessions to the context menu, and when a double is needed, auto-join makes it out of two singles you select.

Sessions have each a tray icon. From there, hide, show, switch , etc. Hiding removes Explorers from the taskbar, to avoid clutter (have a session icon instead).

No more lost Explorers among other windows, as sessions now own them. Close a session and it will close its Explorers. Or bring it to front. You may close Explorers manually and sessions update themselves automatically.

Unicode/UTF-8 is supported.
