Total Commander is file manager (like Windows Explorer, but way better in any case), that can be extended using plugins like: sFTP, various format file readers and etc.

Everything is super fast file search engine for Windows with light indexing and fuzzy search.

So it seems like a good idea to mix Everything and Total Commander to search and manipulate files/directories.

To make all run smoothly — use Everything with the same user as Total Commander.

Open Tools->Options in Everything and choose Context Menu there. In the “items” list choose the option (title) that suits you and just change it’s command to the one below.


$exec(“c:\totalcmd\TOTALCMD.EXE” /T /O /L=”%1")


“c:\totalcmd\TOTALCMD.EXE” — your TC install directory

/O — If Total Commander is already running, activate it and pass the path(s) in the command line to that instance (overrides the settings in the configuration dialog to have multiple windows)

/T — Opens the passed dir(s) in new tab(s) (for usage with /O)

/L= — Set path in left window
