Batch Rename - The Batch Rename function allows you to quickly rename multiple files into a sequence of file names.

Encrypt/Decrypt - The Encrypt/Decrypt function allows you to keep private files private by using a special password encrypting algorithm to render files useless until they are decrypted.

Line Contents - The Line Contents function allows you to display a file contents line-by-line in a grid. This works only on any text based files like .txt, .rtf, .htm(l), .cgi, .pas, .c, etc.

Disk Copy - A very fast and easy way to copy removable media using your system's RAM instead of its hard drive.

Search Text - The Search Text function allows you to find any/all files that contain specific word(s) or phrases.

Directory Printer - The Directory Printer utility allows you to print a listing of every subdirectory and/or file contained within a directory and/or subdirectory.

Directory Compare - The Directory Compare utility will compare all files within two separate directories based on file size, name, data, and actual content and present a comparison report. This is great for keeping two copies of a directory up to date.

ASCII List - Presents a list of all ASCII characters and their binary, hex and decimal equivalents. Great for programmers and HTML design.

Color List - The Color List utility lets you quickly select desired colors and convert their values to Hex, Decimal and RGB.

System Information - The System Information utility is a great way to view a great deal of data about your computer. The System Information screen displays data about the registered user, the computer, the processor, the drives and the paths used by Windows.

Hex Binary Window - The New Hex Window function will take what ever file you currently have open in any other UE Viewing window and open a new Binary/Hex Window with that same file.

Although every aspect of using UE is covered in this User's Manual - each and every toolbar for all the UE tools utilizes the mouse-over pop-up labels making them easy to learn and use.
