Altap Salamander is a fast and reliable two-panel file manager for Windows. It has an intuitive interface, offers viewers for all popular file formats as well as support for common archives, and has built-in FTP and SFTP clients.
Thanks to the merge Altap with Fine company now free of charge.
Salamander, always. Mozilla (SeaMonkey, not FF) Vim, still LeechFTP, essentially no longer used - if I need FTP, I do it through Salamander Locate long ago switched over to "Everything", https://www.voidtools.com/ Eudora, still Win32Pad, still Compression, no GUI (except every so often through Salamander), otherwise only command-line, 7-zip or Arj (generally), less often, Zip (Info-Zip) Renamer, varies, depending on needs, Lupas, still, otherwise Advanced Renamer or Bulk File Renamer Media, MPlayer with MPUI's GUI Net Transport, still CLCL Clipboard, still Password Corral, still (but more often simply a text file that I stick stuff into) Otherwise, most of those utilities, devices, I no longer use
More recent regulars...
Process Hacker, always open ChatZilla, chat client Everything, always open Salamander, always open SeaMonkey, always open command-line prompts, always open
Sysinternals & Nirsoft utilities Duplicate files, AllDup & Duplicate Cleaner are the two best, IMHO Sandboxie, not used on a regular basis, but when checking out unknown programs... (Sandboxie fairly recently was picked up by Sophos, I think it was, & they seem to be in a total state of utter disarray, & I have no confidence in them now.) Unix, any number of gnuwin32 Unix utilities

My file manager of choice is and has been for many years xplorer2. Two panes, and each pane can carry multiple tabs. I paid for mine, but the free lite version is pretty good, as is the support, if required. However I readily acknowledge that there are many other good ones out there https://www.zabkat.com
