Total Commander Ultima Prime 

is a collection of the software and customized settings sets gathered in one installation package for enhancing Total Commander (file manager) possibilities. Our project differs from official distribution provided by Christian Ghisler on site. If you’d like to see and try our solution, you can download it from our servers and discuss about it on our forum’s board. We provide our customization work as freeware in the form as it is but please remember, that Total Commander itself is distributed as shareware. Please keep in mind, that other contained applications licenses might differ and not be proper for commercial purposes too. Detailed descriptions of the software can be found on the forum board.

Today it is exactly 15 years since the release of the first version - TC UP 1.0, which had its premiere on December 31, 2005.

During all these years many people passed through the project, they were programmers, originators and translators:

Paweł Porwisz, Karol Kamiński (fenixproductions), Maciej Adamczyk (m^2), Adam Bukowiński (BuKoX), Dariusz J. Kawecki (DJK), Major Péter (Peti), Kamil Czyszczoń (Sinvar), Artem Izmaylov.

translators: China - Dreamy Mung, Croatia - Daniel Bernazza, Czech Republic - Martin Růžička and Vaclav Stajner and Petr Gasparik, Denmark - Jens Sabroe Pedersen, France - Thierry Rodrigues, Greece - Tampouri Bianca-Tampouris Themis, Spain - Mario Ángel, Netherlands - Stephan Hoek, Germany - Andreas Greunke, EXELBONSAI, Norway - Svein-Ove Urdal, Russia - Anton Isaev and Artem Izmaylov, Romania - Scutelnciu Ionel, Serbia - Nikola Vukelnic, Slovak - Michal Kabát, Sweden - Fredrik Larsson, Turkey - Mahmut VURAL, Ukraine - Roman Yaroslavovich, Hungary - Major Péter and Molnár Balázs, Italy - Carlo Marini and Douglas Quaid.


I would also like to thank all the authors of the programs included in the project, without your consent, TC UP would have looked completely different.

The breakthrough for the project was September 2007, when Paweł Porwisz joined the team - who, thanks to his excellent knowledge of the NSIS installer, made it possible to create solutions that were previously unattainable. Thanks to Paweł's programming skills, we also have proprietary programs in the project, the flagship of which is the TC UP New tool - for quickly creating a large number of directories and files.

At the moment, there are 3 people in the project (not counting the translators), Kamil Czyszczoń (Sinvar), who is responsible for the project website and two for the installer and the operation of the project - Paweł Porwisz and me - Robert Łajka.


We are aware that each of you is different and has different needs, so we try to create the TC UP project that everyone can adjust all settings to themselves during installation (or after installation, using the TC UP Turbo and TC UP Integrator tools).

Over the past 15 years, we have tried to create something that we would like to use ourselves, properly selected programs in one installer.

The idea was and still is simple: "you install the operating system, install TC UP and you don't need anything else..."

Continuing this thought, we present the version: Total Commander Ultima Prime 8.0

From this version, the installer will create the directory ".Files" (located in % USERPROFILE%\Downloads) along with the appropriate subdirectories, I hope it will have a positive effect on keeping order in the sorting of your files.

Due to this new functionality, the "List of favorite directories" menu has been greatly expanded - thanks to this, you can quickly reach selected sub-directories.

In addition, thanks to the fact that TC UP has "its" directories, we were able to create a fully automated backup of the most important files of the TC UP project when uninstalling it.

Listed news can be seen on the official YouTube channel: Total Commander Ultima Prime - I encourage you to subscribe, if we get enough subscribers (symbolic 1000) we will introduce many tutorials that will show how to use TC UP project - I think they will reveal many options for you that you had no idea about ;)

I also encourage you to visit Paweł Porwisz personal page. The Ultimate File Manager project can be found there. This design is similar to the TC UP, yet slightly different.

We would like to THANK ALL the donors who have supported the project over the years.

However, during these 15 years, the sums of payments that we received from you did not cover even the 5-year fees related to the maintenance of the server and domain, not counting other costs - I maintain everything from my own resources, I like to develop this project and devote my time to it, but I can't afford to finance the TC UP maintance all the time, so if you think that the project is useful for you, please support us.

Without your financial support, the further development of the project will be questionable ...


And finally:

Happy New Year!

Let 2021 be better than the historic 2020...

To the next version FRIENDS...

Total Commander Ultima Prime 7.9 includes a new application - Media Player Classic Black Edition. It is well known multimedia player with integrated codecs, that can open almost every audio/video file.

In this version we have focused on „Directory Hotlist” menu (you will be able to get to the most frequently used directories even faster). We spent a lot of time on installer optimization. The goal is to reduce the size of output file while maintaining the existing functionality.

We are continuing changes in internal configuration files. Because of that, some parts of project is still available only in Polish and English language - this is a TEMPORARY situation. When all changes are made we will try to go back to the full translation of all supported languages.


You can see all new changes on the official YouTube: Channel: Total Commander Ultima Prime. Please subscribe! If we get enough subscribers we will introduce many tutorials that will show how to use TC UP project. It only depends on you, so go on and subscribe to our channel.


I encourage you to visit personal page of Paweł Porwisz, co-author of TC UP. You can find there Ultimate File Manager project. It is quite similar to TC UP project, but slightly different.


Dear TC UP users, I'm asking for financial support. Unfortunately making that kind of project takes a huge amount of time and leads to additional costs. Without your support further development of the project will be questionable.

Even the smallest contribution will be a great support.

Total Commander Ultima Prime 7.8 includes two new applications - SMPlayer, it is a multimedia player with integrated codecs, that can open almost every audio/video file (it will substitute Light Alloy, which is no longer developed) and HandBrake, application to convert any video file to selected modern wide spectrum of codecs (works only on x64 systems).

Continuing basic changes started in previous version of TC UP, some of aplications, which are no longer delveloped or were substituted, were removed - those are: Angel Writer, Free Download Manager, HateML, Light Alloy, Unlocker, VirtualDub, StatBar, Tail for Win32, TightVNC.

Menu „Directory Hotlist” was updated with many new entries, and on the "Horizontal Button Bar" we added shortcuts to „Programs” and „Tools”. Because of that we can access our most frequently visited folders easier, and open our favorite programs even faster. Other button bars were also updated i.a. „Sleep Computer” button was added.

Advanced Info displayed on the Total Commander title bar was also updated,  some problems from previous version was fixed  and configuration files were changed, because of that part of the project is accessible in full only in Polish and English - This is TEMPORARY situation. When all changes will be applied, we'll come back to fully support all other languages.

You can see all new changes on the official Youtube Channel: Total Commander Ultima Prime - Please subscribe, if suitable amount of subscribers will be gathered, tutorials about how to operate parts of the project will show up.

I encourage you to visit personal page of Paweł Porwisz, co-author of TC UP. You can find there Ultimate File Manager project. It is similar to TC UP yet slightly different.


And for the end...

Dear TC UP users, I'm asking for financial support. Unfortunately making that kind of project takes a huge amount of time and leads to additional costs. Without your support further development of the project will be in question.

Even the smallest contribution will be amazing support.

Dear TC UP users!

After a few months break we are proud to present the new version of Total Commander Ultima Prime 7.7 project, and the new version of the official website (which will be successively developed).

The newest version of Total Commander Ultima Prime project brings

W najnowszej odsłonie projektu Total Commander Ultima Prime dodaliśmy przeglądarkę Vivaldi Browser - in our opinion the best web browser ever created. From the look and feel, to how user interact with browser, every aspect of Vivaldi can be tweaked and customized. User is in control. This behave is quite similar to TC UP.

We have also added Captura program (it allows you to capture Screen, WebCam, Audio, Cursor, Mouse Clicks and Keystroke), Space Sniffer tool (it is used to quickly check the used space on hard drives) and Diskinternals Reader plugin (it gives access to partitions and disk images).

New TC UP version fixes known bugs and problems. Among other things, the problem with file associations in Windows 10 and icons pinning on the Windows taskbar has been fixed. New Total Commander vertical bar with with appropriately configured shortcuts has been added and all existing button bars have been improved.

We spent a lot of time and we put in a lot of work developing TC UP New - the tool which is used to quickly create directories and files. Thanks to many fundamental changes, creating a large number of directories and files is even faster and more intuitive. As usual, the programs and plug-ins included in the project have been updated to the latest versions.

Dear users, please support the project by donations. We also invite you to subscribe to the official YouTube channel. We would like to know if you are interested to watch TC UP guides on YouTube channel.

Finally, information for translators. I have not forgotten about you! We are going to add more changes to the project so translation must wait. If everything is ready - I will contact you.

Please, just send me a confirmation email if you are still interested to be active TC UP translator. This information is very important, to know which languages should be supported in future.

Happy new year!
