XYplorer (pronounced eks-wai-plorer; formerly known as TrackerV3) is a shareware file manager for Windows 98/NT/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7. XYplorer is a hybrid file manager that combines features found in navigational and orthodox file managers. In addition to dual folder panes (since version 8), it features a file tree and a tabbed interface for folders that supports drag-and-drop between tabs and panes.

A central feature is the hideable information panel at the bottom that can be used to view file properties and contents, generate reports, preview files (PNG, TIF, GIF, JPG, TGA, PSD, ICO; WAV, MP3, MPEG, AVI; TTF, PFB; HTML, EML, MSG, DOC, XLS, PDF, and many other formats) and find files. The search facility supports Boolean logic, regular expressions, whole word and fuzzy matching, binary string search, and multiple location search. Some unique features are the Catalog, (which is a user created panel of links to files, folders, URLs, and similar entries), Scripting (which allows user to create stored sets of commands, similar to a macro), Mini Tree (a custom subset of the tree) and UDC (User Defined Commands, to create a limited set of customized commands).

XYplorer is a portable (stand-alone) file manager. It does not require any installation, stores all data in the program's folder or a user defined folder, and running it does not change the system or registry unless by user request.

Historically, the application was first a search engine, and later grew into a more complete file manager.

XYplorer is being actively developed by Donald Lessau since 1998, originally as dual licenced freeware (non-commercial use) and professional licence, but now under a single commercial licence with 30 day trial mode. A feature limited "Home" version is available for a lower price.

A discontinued freeware version (5.50), available from Nov 2007 to May 2008, is obsolete for current operating systems.
