    Use Midnight Commander if you want a similar experience.

    If you want to use it on Windows 10 just download preferably buy Total Commander. Functionally almost exactly the same but works natively with Windows 10.

    art travis you'll never be able to use NC in Windows 10. You should go download FreeCommander.

    When I first saw how DOS worked, I was not too impressed. A lot of strong typing. When I saw Norton Commander, I was hooked. I still use it (Total Commander these days), way faster than clicking with one mouse-finger, you use ten fingers and shortcuts to move files around, cut trees and ZIP files. It is fantastic !
