Alternative to Windows file explorer
« on: December 06, 2016, 08:12:00 AM »
Is it possible to use an alternative to Windows file Explorer (ex. xyplorer), where it would be possible to see and edit the custom tags.

As long the alternative explorer can use Windows shell extensions such as property and preview handlers, then yes. From a quick look, the xyplorer doesn't seems to have support for this type of Windows shell extensions. Other examples, such as the xplorer2 or the directory opus, have limited support. Probably there are others, but I'm not a user of such tools so I'm not the best person to ask.
The Windows shell extensions can be used by any Windows Desktop application, so the developers of these file explorers can easily add support for such functionality.
