About the new permission "SuperUser":
This permission is now requested to make Total Commander work better on rooted devices. It tells the SuperUser app that Total Commander supports root functions. It has no effect if your device is not rooted. Root functions allow Total Commander to write to system folders like /system or /data. You will be warned before anything is written if the partition is write protected.

One of only two file managers kept out of many tried. Nice plugins, reasonable footprint, decent UI, not a resource hog, and requires only storage permission. Only operation I miss it that it can't move external card files; have to go through Settings>Storage. Especially like "Create link on desktop" and multiple app sort options. Offers network connectivity flexibility.

I've been using TC for years. Great app. PLEASE remove the "continue playing where I left off" feature for audio playback. It's extremely annoying. Once a music playlist has been closed and TC terminated, there is no reason for TC to remember where every track stopped playing the last time it played. Because of this, the playback of large playlists causes a lot of skipping, ruining the listening experience. PLEASE FIX IT! I would reinstall TC 2.72 but I'd wipe out all customized settings!

Double columns! Yes! Now I can work with two folders on the same screen! Two lists to consult when I'm looking for a file. Dark screen when I'm working in the dark. Works great on my old tablet which I use every day. Thank you!! {edit the search asterick doesnt work if you use a word in the middle of the title. Irritating to have to choose and backspace before every . single . search}
