Far Manager 3.0.3900


Old style. This would have been enough to describe the interface if it wasn't for the customization options that it gives. From the Properties tab you can change the cursor size, the font, the layout of the window and the colors that are used. For the last feature you can make your own color by adding precise values of the red, green and blue colors, maximizing in this way the customization options that the app gives. Still, all this doesn't change the fact that it has an outdated interface that lacks icons, but this can be a good thing for the users that don't want to use this feature, integrated for the first time in the Macintosh computer. There are, of course, some new features, like the fact that the program opens in a separate window and you can easily switch between it and other windows, which means that developers Eugene Roshal and Far Group removed the usual full screen that was used for such apps.

Basic Operations

All this is done in two ways – with a mouse and a keyboard, with the second way taking us back to the old MS-DOS days. The commands that you can use are the same like in the versions that were used at the end of the millennium. Actually, we had fun using the commands, because some of us grew up with MS-DOS and its command lines that we still remember. But the integrated mouse support and auto-completion of the lines reminds us that this is an app made for the Windows operating system. Still, if you want to return to the good old times, you can download this app, even only for fun. But if you delve into it you will see that it is not only for history lessons.


Far Manager has every good feature of open source apps – it is free, it can be expanded and it is multilingual. The last part is somewhat a problem, for those that insist to use icons, but for fans of the old MS-DOS style, this look is an advantage.
