Run DFSee from a bootable USB stick , with a user-friendly PUPPY Linux, or the older FreeDOS/Linux combo

To make using DFSee more comfortable on Linux (and macOS) the userinterface has been enhanced to match the other platforms:

- The Mouse now works in X-environments (xterm, rxvt, macOS Terminal)

- Screen output can use an 88-color (rxvt) or 256 color (xterm, macOS Terminal) palette where the colors are mapped to closely mimic the 16x16 colors of OS/2, DOS or Windows

- There are new menu items under the 'File' menu to unmount/mount volumes (required on macOS to make disks read/write for DFSee)

Mouse functionality has been enhanced for all platforms to include open HELP with MB3, close windows with Ctrl+click, drag-select in (Browse) lists, toggle between Expert/Basic modes, scroll the text output window and more ...
DFSee menu documentation

DFSee menu documentation updated for version 14.5. Over 800 large screenshots and detailed help information!

A complete reference to every menu-item in the DFSee menu, both BASIC and EXPERT, including the help-screens for every item as well as hundreds of screen-shots documenting the flow of many DFSee functions. Browsing through this reference is probably the fastest and safest way to learn about the capabilities of the DFSee program.
