File Manager with Lightning Fast Response AND Graphical File Structure

Last Modified: 2020-07-25
Having learned the difference between File Managers and Search tools here I've been using Void Tools Everything now for a while.

However, I keep returning to Windows Explorer because, to effectively use Everything, it is more efficient to be able to type in the directory names I want to search in.

Trouble is, due to my sort of scatter shot directory naming NaMiNg_- CconVENtionS - Lo! These many years! - right now I need to use Explorer just to get the Folder name right.  Not to mention where it may be nested! :D

That suggests an interesting (though perhaps parochial just to me?) dilemma.  Is there any Explorer-replacing high-speed-executing File Manager that, in addition to the kind of lightning fast responsiveness as Everything, also SHOWS a graphical display of the existing directory structure, so that one can click on files instead of typing the file names?
