Direct Folders gives you immediate access to every file on your computer, no matter where it's parked. When you double click on the desktop, Windows Explorer, or a Save/Open dialog box, Direct Folders will immediately transport you to the last folder you used or to any other folder your choice. With Direct Folders, your most important documents are literally a click away!

And that's not all -- Direct Folders also lets you configure default folders for each program on your computer. For example, the next time you create a Word document, it'll be automatically be saved in the folder that you keep your Word files in!

Direct Folders also lets you check the space on your hard drive from the Save dialog, so that you can know that you're running out of hard drive space long before you try to save or copy a file that's too large.

twm Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 are not supported?

J Hello,

Is this the 'Pro' version?

The screenshots on your website show 'Direct Folders Pro' in the Title Bar. The screenshots here do not.

Also, are you still developing this software? Your website shows that the last update was July 27, 2012.

Thank you.

Mr_Yeh @twm I wouldn't even say Windows 7 is properly supported. The application hasn't been updated since July 2012, and as you can see in the old comments above, the last time the developer commented on this thread was in 2012.

I use it on a Win7, 64-bit machine and some features have never worked (and if you do some search you'll find others with similar experiences on Win7, 64-bit).

To me this looks like abandoned software. Some users have raised the issue of lack of development and support already back in 2011. Which is a pity because this is really a very useful piece of software.

I would still recommend it, but don't be surprised if some features won't work, if you don't get a reply to your support requests, and if no more updates appear.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller @Mr_yeh. .
Utter nonsense, I have used on vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10.

What many don't know is that you have to right click the system tray icon to select which feature you want to use.

Mr_Yeh @Heidi-Ann

I never said it doesn't work on Win7. I said some features never worked on my Win7, 64-bit machines. E.g. it would not go to the currently open Dopus lister, no matter what.

If it works for you, great. But I don't think you're qualified to comment on how things work on my machines. If you don't trust my experience, then read the comments of other users on the Direct Folders blog itself:

Danny Unfortunately , an abandoned software!

Duane User I've used this program for years. Sometimes it goes stupid on me but works great if I just reload it. Most of the time it's very useful.

I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have the Pro version.

Mr_Yeh @Duane

Yes, it does crash occasionally on mine as well, which is another reason why this software is well overdue for an update (nearly 4 years in fact).

Red Microuser Small little question: Cannot find way to enter lic key. Also, cannot
locate the help-about icon or tab to verify status of registration and
version of program.
How is the lic key entered into the program? ?

Constantin Florea @Red Microuser, I have just contacted the vendor regarding the issue you mention.
