Why Fileside?

Everything in its right place

The main issue that Fileside addresses is the constant need to open multiple windows, navigate to the locations you need in each one, then painstakingly resize and arrange them side-by-side to start moving files around.

With Fileside, you can add as many panes as you like, horizontally and vertically, navigate to the locations that make sense for the task at hand, once, then save the layout for immediate access later on.

Fileside’s guiding principles are convenience, simplicity and configurability.
