Hi All, I am looking for something very elusive. Maybe you know of something that meets the need?
Essentially, I would like to find something like Windows 95's Explorer, but for Win 3.1 / WFWG 3.11 - a graphical, folder-based file management tool; not a desktop, but rather a program that I can run from the existing Windows desktop. This program would support all the usual file manager stuff - create, delete, modify, copy, move, etc. I specifically am not looking for the "commander" style interface, which presents files and directories in a one per row fashion, with a small icon included in each row, but rather a Windows 95 Explorer-like interface, where there is just a window (or windows) full of large file and folder icons that can be operated upon with the mouse.
Because I am looking for a file manager program, not a full desktop replacement, things like Silver Wolf Desktop and Calmira don't meet the need, even though both present exactly the sort of file management interface I am seeking. Regrettably, it doesn't seem to be possible to extract out just the file management piece and run it by itself outside of the associated desktop - it is an "all or nothing" proposition... I think. I would love it if I was wrong on this and someone could identify how to isolate out either's file management interface and use it independently of the rest of the package.
Anyway... if anyone knows of a good graphical, folder-based file manager for Win 3.1 or WFWG 3.11, I would be grateful if you would reply back.
