ABOUT DEFAULT FOLDER X
Awarded Macworld Magazine’s 2002 Editors’ Choice Award for Best
System Enhancement Utility, Default Folder X makes OS X Open and Save
dialogs “work the way they should,” according to Macworld’s editors.
Default Folder X makes it easier for you to manage files by adding
features and correcting flaws in the file dialogs of all Mac OS X
Default Folder X lets you:
1. Navigate through folders with menus. You no longer have to
navigate one folder at a time. With Default Folder X’s hierarchical
menus, you can quickly descend through multiple levels of folders
without clicking your time away.
2. Open from or Save to windows you have open in the Finder. Simply
click on the window you want and the Open or Save dialog will display
that folder. If you can’t click on the window you want, a popup menu
lets you choose from any window you have open in the Finder.
3. Quickly go to recently used and favorite folders. Default Folder
X’s menus track folders you’ve used recently and give you fast access
to your favorite folders. And you can assign command keys to your
favorites to get to them even faster.
4. Rename, delete, archive, and get information on files and folders
without leaving a file dialog. Default Folder X provides many useful
commands so you don’t have to leave the Open or Save dialog to do
something basic like renaming a file.
5. “Rebound” back to the last item that you selected in a folder. You
no longer have to hunt through a list of files for a particular
document you were working on before. Choose Open from the File menu,
and it’s already selected.
6. The Finder integrated. When you really need to do more with a file
or folder, you can make Default Folder X tell the Finder to open the
same folder shown in an Open or Save dialog. You can also assign
hotkeys to your favorite folders to open them in the Finder instantly.
7. Set a default folder for any application. The first time an
application presents an Open or Save dialog, the contents of the file
dialog may show your Documents folder or some other location that’s
not where you want to be. With Default Folder X, you control the
initial location shown in Open and Save dialogs.
8. Make better use of Spotlight. Apple introduced Spotlight and Smart
Folders in Mac OS 10.4, but there’s no way to easily add keywords and
comments to files as you create them. Default Folder X fixes this by
letting you enter Spotlight comments when you save a file.
Default Folder X will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X
version 10.3 or higher, including Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger), and is a
Universal Application compatible with both PowerPC- and Intel-powered
Macintoshes. Default Folder X is distributed as shareware, requiring
a $34.95 registration fee for use beyond a free 30 day trial period.
