Control3 is a comprehensive file management program for copying and moving files between drives and directories, for deleting, viewing, or editing files, executing programs, full .ZIP file processing (including the creation of self-extracting, executable archives), and for quickly navigating complex directory structures. Unlike other file management programs Control3 gives you access to three drives or directories simultaneously, so the files you want access to are more often directly at your fingertips. Control3 also features an exceptionally fast directory search function enabling you to rapidly navigate your file system. An ideal replacement for Windows Explorer.
