    Is anyone familiar with V? It is an all-purpose File Manager/Viewer
    for Windows (XP/200x/Vista/7). <http://fileviewer.com/index.html>

    It is supposed to be an excellent manager/viewer that is Descript.ion
    file aware, i.e. you can view/write/modify file descriptions in the
    Manager/Viewer. I'm thinking of purchasing it and wondering how it
    works with TCC (any version) on Win7.

    Anyone using it in that environment?

    I use it all the time. It is number
    2 in my list of must-have utilities (TakeCommand being number 1). I
    have recommended it numerous times on this forum.

    Thanks Scott. I've done some more reading about it since I posted the
    message and have decided to give it a try. I don't use a file manager
    often, but I like the idea of being able to see/edit the file
    descriptions when I do have to use a file manager. I particularly
    like the idea of a portable "V" that can run off a USB stick.

    V = out-freekin'-standing!!!

    I have it installed on my box and on a stick for when I go somewhere. You can't beat the price of $20 for 6 years and the no-nonsense licensing agreement (there's also a "mumbo-jumbo" agreement, but I like this version better) doesn't hamper your usage.

    I actually rarely use the file manager
    features. I use the file viewing features all the time, however.

    I understand. I do probably about 95% of my file work (move, copy,
    rename) using TCC. However, I find that occasionally some tasks such
    as renaming files based upon the names of other existing files in the
    directory, are more easily performed using a file manager. That's
    what I'm now using "V" for. It's nice to see the descriptions.
