A comparison of the most popular file managers for Linux.
Note: The look of every file manager may be different in your system (because of missing icons, programs build with Qt or GTK toolkits, themes,…)
Table of Contents
Default file manager for XFCE. It works well in low-spec computers and it has an elegant design.

KDE file manager. In my system looks bad because it has not loaded the icons, but inside KDE it will look better.
LXQt default file manager. Lightweight and simple for low-spec devices.
