If you install Total Commander from the "direct download" link for the first time, please open the "Settings" app of your Android device and go to the "Applications" page. Here you need to allow apps from "Unknown Sources". No need to do this when installing from the Google Play store (Android Market).

There are five ways to install Total Commander:

1. From Google Play, if your device supports it (recommended)

2. From the Amazon App Store (for Kindle tablets and Android devices with the Amazon app)

3. If you read this on your device, click on "direct download".

4. If you read this on your PC, and have a barcode scanner app installed on your Android device, double click on the following QR code, then scan it with your phone to start the download. You can get a barcode App by searching for barcode in the market. Personally I'm using the app "Barcode Scanner" by ZXing Team, it's a very simple one, which is open source, so it should be safe.

5. Finally you can of course type in the following link by hand in the web browser of your device:

For Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, NT, XP, Vista, 7, 8, or 8.1, go back to the download page!
