Konqueror is an advanced file manager for the KDE Software compilation, providing file management functions ranging from simple cut/copy and paste operations to advanced local and remote network file browsing. Folder contents can be displayed in a variety of text and icon view modes, which can include thumbnail preview images of file contents. File and folder properties can easily be examined and changed, and applications launched with a simple click of the mouse button.
In KDE SC 4 Dolphin is the default file manger. To change the default component for browsing folders, open in the System Settings and select Konqueror as file manager.
Konqueror is also an excellent full featured FTP client.
Konqueror is a universal viewing application, capable of displaying images and documents without having to launch another application. It does this by embedding components (KDE Parts) provided by other applications; from Gwenview; for image viewing, Okular for PDF, PostScript® and other documents.
Konqueror is a fully customizable application which anyone can configure to suit their own needs, from changing the overall style and the sizes of text and icons to selecting which items appear in the Menubar, changing the number and positions of the toolbars and even defining new shortcut key combinations. Different configuration profiles can be saved for easy recall as needed.
