file & folder manager with more than 2 panels (windows)

In Windows OS, explorer.exe is a file & folder manager that integrates the OS itself.
If we go to download.com (or other similar sites), we can find a lot of “Files & Folders Managers” (for example – Directory Opus, Total Commander, File Quest, Frigate, and many, many more). It is frequent to find, in such type of applications, dual-panels / dual-windows <=> explorers / browsers / commanders (and we can, for example, move a file from a panel to the other).
My question is : do you any file & folder manager with more than 2 panels (windows) ?
Thanks.
Regards.

I am assuming and this may be incorrect, but xp pro can handle up to 10 monitors. I have to for multitasking. I have opened Windows explorer to two monitors at times to facilitate file movement. Possibly supply more information.

Possible solution: Open 2 copies of the fantastic xplorer2 (http://zabkat.com/), set one to activate & remain on top whenever the other one opens & to be minimized whenever the other one is minimized. So you get between 2 to 4 panels that way :-D

All I do is run two instances of Windows Explorer. No problem, no extra program to add to the clutter.

I like Vallis answer. Just open two explorer windows then right click your taskbar and choose Tile windows vertically... :)

To elaborate on the use of Windows Explorer - forgive me if I'm teaching you to suck eggs.
If you open more than one instance and wish to tile them - and any other windows - as ieden suggests, you can do it when you have multiple windows open by CTRL clicking the required icons on the taskbar, then right click on one of the selected ones to only tile those windows.

Ah, looks the same as xplorer2...
Only 2 panels at the right-hand side, same as xplorer2, which also has 3 total windows
http://images.google.ca/images?q=xplorer2+&hl=en&btnG=Search+Images

I though you meant you wanted 2+ non-tree views, not 2+ in total...

xplorer2 lite http://zabkat.com/x2lite.htm is FREE..

Poink! lol (you can ask at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ to split : ) )

He was aasking for individual explorers / browsers / commanders ! That thang you talk about is a Two pane model. Their is a difference between "list views" and "file views" - DUH!

In fact, as he listed, those other names above are of a breed of about 20 that are ALL two-pane, and just vary the functions or number of tabs, etc. If you're interested in that ilk... here's one of the latest entrants:

Multi File Manager is set of four File Browsers that works altogether.
 
 


With Multi File Manager you can:
 
Use this File Manager in the same way as the regular File Managers.
You can set multiple destination paths.
Copy or Move files to 3 different folders at once
