You don't use a different file manager depending on what you want to do, 
you use the default dumbed-down dolphin if you're the type who can't 
figure out shell wildcards let alone regular expressions and presumably 
can't figure out how to change the default file manager either, otherwise 
you use an intelligent file manager that lets you do what you want, 
whether that's always the same thing with the same file manager, or 
different things with different managers depending on the task at hand.
