Total Commander is a Windows File Explorer alternative that allows users to locate, copy, move, delete, pack, unpack, and compare files. Total Commander users can choose from a number of configuration options that determine how the program looks and functions. To access these options, users select Configuration → Options... from Total Commander's menu bar.

The settings a user selects in Total Commander's Configuration window are saved to the program's two INC files. Totalcmd.inc contains a record of almost all of a user's configuration settings, except their toolbar icon settings. Those settings are saved in wcmicons.inc.
