really need a good file app, all this trash and un-usability is driving me crazy

first question: do any of these show when they were last updated? or does ms store not show that?
here's the file apps tested, ranked from least worst overall to complete trash

one commander
q-dir
xplorer lite
tagspaces


to complete trash

explorer++
freecommander
total commender
double commander



here's the checklist of what is looked for

basic stuff

☐ middle click on folder file opens a new tab (like in chrome firefox etc)
☐ 1 click to open a file, not 2
☐ no sound when click files
☐ should have at least 2 panes/windows within the app
☐ filetype / extension of file must be shown
☐ has ctrl t or something easy to open new tab
☐ should replace explorer
☐ all this should be default


url/file bar

☐ in url/file bar, able to click on file/file path to get there
☐ double click url bar to highlight url


clean minimal visual interface UI/design

☐ active tabs should be white, not grey
☐ url bar (file bar) should be white, not grey
☐ no useless 'status bars'


opens how it was

☐ should open to where you last were
☐ width of columns must be remembered as default

☐ should be recently updated, and regularly updated and made better


looking for the closet app that meets the above checklist

please do not recommend anything that doesnt fulfill this checklist, all these s****

So much specific requirements - I think you'll have to program this app yourself.
