Did you know that XYplorer is an existing name for such tool: xyplorer.com/. That application exists since 1997. When I first read your post, I thought of this software.

I didn't know that existed, Xplorer is the name I randomly picked it when trying to thinking about a name of the File Explorer, and suddenly thought that Explorer without "E" is still read as "Explorer", so I picked Xplorer.

What are you talking about? XYP is not the same as just XP
There are many many brands that differ just in one letter, so your argument doesn't apply

Which argument ? 😉 I was just giving information and said I had read the subject too quickly and mistakenly thought it was the tool I was using. I did not make any judgement or presume anything.
