CompuShow 2000! is a DOS program with a desktop design, pull-down menus, clickable status bar, context-sensitive help and moveable, resizeable, overlapping windows. Open up to nine windows on different drives and directories at the same time and drag-and-drop files from one window to another to copy or move them. Tag files in multiple windows (in different directories, even different disk drives) to display in a timed "show". Include all files with the familiar "*.*" file mask, or by a list of specifications such as "*.gif;*.bmp;*.pcx;*.jpg". Sort by name, extension, size, or date, forward or backward. Display in UPPERCASE or lowercase. Turn on or off display of file size, date, or time.

All setup functions and program documentation are instantly available from inside the program, or you can print the documentation on your printer with complete control of page width, length and margins.
