Directory Opus is a simplest file manager, a utility program which presents lists of files and allows the user to perform actions of some kind on those files.

File managers are useful for moving files between folders, making backup copies of files, viewing pictures and playing sounds, running other utility programs on lists of files, deleting unwanted files and many other “housekeeping” tasks.

Directory Opus goes beyond the simple file manager metaphor, and offers you a complete replacement for Windows Explorer and many other utility programs for handling FTP, ZIP, viewing files and images, running slideshows and more.

It provides you with all this within a user-friendly and fully-configurable environment within which you can access and manage your important data with a minimum of effort. Harness the power of your computer like never before!

Directory Opus Features:

  • Single or dual file displays, with single or dual trees, make navigating and manipulating files a breeze
  • Folder tabs let you keep multiple folders open and switch quickly between them
  • Integrated viewer pane lets you preview many common image and document file formats
  • View and edit file metadata (EXIF, MP3, PDF, etc)
  • Sorting, grouping, filtering and searching has never been easier
  • Color code or rate your files and folders to make them easier to find
  • Batch renaming including the option for a fully scripted rename using metadata
  • Support for FTP, Zip, 7-Zip, RAR and many other archive formats
  • Built-in tools including synchronize, duplicate file finder, image converter and uploader and more
  • Print or export folder listings, copy file listings to the clipboard, calculate folder sizes
  • Queue multiple file copies for improved performance
  • Support for CD/DVD burning
  • Fully configurable user interface – toolbars, keyboard hotkeys and much more can be tailored to suit your needs
  • Efficient, multi-threaded, modern design

What’s New in Directory Opus 12:

Changes in Directory Opus 12.31:

  • Fixed problem reading empty directories with SFTP servers which return a completely empty list for them (missing the usual “.” and “..” entries).
  • Fix for viewer status bar’s text potentially appearing bold (overprinted) if status icons were displayed on it.
  • Added a kludge to block duplicate DropBox context menu items on Windows 11. (The actual cause is a DropBox bug).
  • Scripting:
    • DialogListColumns object has new GetDisplayOrder and SetDisplayOrder methods for changing the order columns are displayed on-screen, including the ability to move secondary columns before the primary column which usually appears first.
    • Added Control.redraw property. Set to false to disable redraw in some types of control (e.g. listviews) while making multiple changes to them. Set back to true to redraw changes.
    • File objects (representing open file handles which are being read/written) can now be passed directly to Command.AddFile and similar methods without conversion. (Provided the File object has a path; not for virtual files that only exist in memory.)
    • Fixed rendering issue with group boxes with no title set in script dialogs
  • Removed Open Office extensions from the default ActiveX viewer extension list, as it’s unlikely that kind of viewer is installed for them these days.
  • Improved viewer compatibility with FoxIt PDF preview handler. (Now works again without having to move the .PDF extension to FoxIt’s other handler.)
  • Rich Text files (.rtf) with names starting “~” are no longer sent to preview handlers in the viewer pane. Microsoft Word uses this pattern for temporary files while editing documents, and Microsoft’s preview handlers go wrong (freezing or opening unwanted conversion dialogs) when asked to view the files.
  • When in multi-column sort mode, the Set SORTREVERSE=Toggle command did not properly update the arrow in the sort header that indicates the overall sort direction.
  • In a dual Lister with two folder trees, clicking on an item in the inactive folder tree no longer causes it to “jump” to show the previously selected item before reading the new folder.
  • The icon size is now correct on high-DPI systems when changing view modes in a hosted virtual folder (e.g. Recycle Bin.)
  • Windows 11 context menus:
    • Fixed items for some Store apps not appearing if they used a new method to register themselves against file extensions.
    • Fixed for unlabeled sub-menus for OneDrive and iCloud appearing. (These didn’t appear in File Explorer, didn’t work when clicked, and looked wrong due to having icons without labels. We now filter them out.)
  • Extended the Delete command’s SKIPNOTEMPTY and FAILNOTEMPTY modes to skip or error on files, including zero-byte files. (These modes are for cleaning up empty folders after other commands — e.g. moving everything up a level — so passing a file to them would be unexpected and will now be treated as such.)
  • Fix for Explorer.exe crash which could happen when dragging a file to the Windows desktop using the right mouse button. (Fix requires reboot or log-out after installing the update.)

Changes in Directory Opus 12.30:

  • Improved viewer support for Photoshop PSB files (like PSD but larger/rarer). The standalone viewer can now open them on double-click and will include them in the next/previous image list.
  • Blocked the PC Revive shell extension by default, due to it breaking other things.
  • Fixed Details and Power modes not scrolling the focus item into view if you scrolled away from it and then pushed the cursor key in the same direction you had scrolled.
  • Improved handling of renaming a directory into a sub-dir of itself, particularly with network drives where another Opus or Explorer window is displaying the directory being moved.
  • When loading Icon Sets, additional validation is performed on the specified icon sizes and coordinates.
  • The Print Folder tool now calculates file counts of archives if one of the file count columns is added to the format and the option to calculate folder sizes is turned on.
  • Changing the user interface language no longer replaces the filetype group infotips and tile definitions if they have previously been modified from the defaults.
