Software for Dummies Written by a Dummy II!


Here’ my second post on a beaut of a software program which has become indispensable!  Directory Opus, a Windows Explorer file manager replacement.  Tired of Windows explorer?  Well, this is for you!

Customizable panes!  Instead of one pane, you can customize the program to have two or more.  This is good especially if you have a storage drive.  You can jump to your storage drive and access files on it when your storage drive is connected to your computer.   Believe me, this saves a lot of time.  This is also good for perusing multiple files and folders already on your computer.  You can move files and folders between drives or folders by dragging and dropping.

Dual panes which can be situated horizontally or vertically. There are also tabs which indicate the drive and folder.

The Preview pane.  The preview pane allows for viewing pdf, text, word, and numerous image formats, there is probably formats I  am not even aware of!

Preview pane for images. You can also play video and music format files in the preview pane as well as various text formats such as PDF and Word. You can size the pictures by zooming in and out. Fanfuckingtastic!! I haven’t even plumbed the usages for this, being dumb I guess that is par for the course for me though!

PDF preview! You can scroll down the pages and read the pdf on your computer!

Word:

There is a FTP function but I have never used it.  You can favourite folds and folders so as to have ready access to them, a time saver.  There are numerous functions I have yet to use.  I am constantly being surprised as to what I can do with this program.  Being dumb this is it for now.  Take this for a spin, you won’t be sorry!  I wasn’t!
