Krusader has been my favourite "orthodox" twin pane file manager for many years now. I use Kubuntu as my everyday OS so it's a native file manager here. It's got just about every thing anyone could desire in a file manager. Slightly off topic a bit: Recently I installed deepin Linux on my laptop and was surprised that Krusader didn't require so many KDE dependencies to install as I was expecting. I was even more surprised how well it works in deepin and that it's a later version than I have in Kubuntu 18.04! Go figure! See More
Midnight commander is easy and intuitive to use. The most common commands are displayed in the bottom (move, copy, paste, delete, edit, view, make directory). Files can be selected with the arrow keys which move the cursor through them. The Enter key goes down in a directory. To move the focus between two panels the tab key is used. See More

On the bottom it has the most useful commands with their corresponding key attached. All of this makes for a very intuitive interface both for beginners and experienced users. See More
