The utility supports extensibility via plugins,[8][9] and it can bind external programs for viewing or editing files. Many plugins are freely available, e.g. different packer formats or file viewer for special file formats. Many functions not available by default are supported and can be assigned to icons.[10]

From 1993 until 2002, Total Commander was called Windows Commander. The name was changed in 2002 after Microsoft pointed out that the word "Windows" was their trademark.[11]
