Broot is an Open Source way to view and navigate any size directory trees through the command line.
It will permit you to search for files, attach custom shortcuts, and manipulate them without jeopardizing the given folder's hierarchy. Broot does require a br shell function to be launched and used (admin).
Broot is designed to allow you to navigate a directory with minimum keystrokes, even when you don't recall its location. It is fast and never blocks even when you search a big slow disk (any keystroke interrupts the current search to start the next one).
It is a good idea to head over to the author's site and read through the usage guide for use.
