I am looking for a Windows Explorer like application that will allow me to browse folders, and view selected files, without having to open them in their respective applications.  In addition, as I move from file to file, viewing each files contents, I would like to tag or place a checkmark next to those files I want to ultimately move or copy to another folder.  I envision an explorer looking application with a tree window, a related file list, and viewer window.  Within the file list, each file or subfolder would include a check box, allowing me to select those items I want to perform a "copy", or "move" operation on.

Quick View Standard (Avantstar) does that. If is a file viewer for many types of files; you do not need to open the file; and you can move or copy files with the left side Explorer tool.

I have Qickview Plus.  Doesn't do what I want.  I went with a third party service.   I upload and they load all the files into a database and I access them via their online viewer.  They can make viewable just about everything except binaries.  I can create my own categories and assign files to one or more as I click through looking at them.  I can also tag files as "hot", and I can attach notes to them.   I have all kinds of search and filtering functions and when I am done, I can enter selection criteria and convert selected files to jpg, tiff, or pdf, and send them where ever I like.  For an extra charge, other users can login and view files with you simultaneously and attach their own notes.   Very nice, but very very expensive.
