Multi File Manager has four File Browsers that works with each other.
Only one File Browser can be source (active one) but you can have here up to three destination file browsers.
The browser that is active will have its title bar highlighted, otherwise the browsers that are inactive or unused will have its title bar painted with different colors.

The right-upper browser is inactive but is the destination browser and has light blue title bar.

Colors of the title bars, either for active, inactive or unused browsers can be set in the software options.
