You know the drill - every time you go to open and load a particular file, you have to go through the same steps of navigating to its folder. This is true across all applications, and is such an expected part of our workflow that we've just come to accept it as the way things are. But it doesn't have to be! In fact, today's discount software promotion, Buzz Folders Pro, aims to make life easier for anyone who ever needs to open files. And, ahem, that's all of us.

Buzz Folders Pro keeps track of all of the folders that you open and save files to, giving you shortcuts to recent and favorite folders. With Buzz Folders Pro, you're not just limited to "recently opened" items like most programs offer. Indeed, you have total control over Buzz Folders Pro, which lets you filter displayed folders by file type or program, or keep different Favorite folders depending on which program you have running. No matter where you are, Buzz Folders Pro places your shortcuts right underneath every standard Open/Save dialog box.

Thanks to an innovative use of tabs, Buzz Folders Pro offers you access to a lot of information without ever becoming overwhelming. By default, the tabs presented by Buzz Folders Pro allow you quick access to folders used by the current application, your favorites, a global list, and more. You can rearrange tabs, or add additional tabs that are customized for specific files or program types. Want to see all of the files that you've opened with Word? Boom - new tab! Want to see all JPEG images? Boom - another tab!

With just this one program, your productivity will bust through the roof! So, take your Open/Save workflows to the next level today, with a copy of Buzz Folders Pro!

Brenda Adams I've loaded up the Pro demo and am excited. It looks like this will be a very useful program for me (as compared to others I've seen, bought, demo'd. I already think I'll want the Extreme. Can't wait to see how this all turns out...and can't wait to learn more about using it. Looks SO delightful! I'm pumped! :)

Buyer Software Is there a video explaining how to use the software?

Daniel Jackson Hi Brenda,

It's great to know you're enjoying the program!

Buyer Software,

There's no video just yet. There is documentation on the site.
+ you can email me, or post on the forum if you have questions.

Noggin The Nog Is Buzz Folders Extreme also on offer?

Daniel Jackson Noggin The Nog,

Just Buzz Folders Pro is on offer.

It is possible to run Extreme and Pro at the same time. I recommend trying them one at a time though. You can choose to have Buzz Folders Extreme appear below the open/save boxes just like the Pro version

Pavi Johnson @Nico and Richard

I agree with Edward. Just saying it is a false positive is insufficient... what is this program actually doing? Is it an autorun utility, etc?

With such a warning, it is imperative to know the reason for the false positive and the program's actual function.

Best, /Pavi

Daniel Jackson Hi Pavi,

There are a few possible reasons:

Buzz Folders tracks the folders you open and save from. This could be alarming in other circumstances, but in this case it's desirable! You want it to do that as it's the main function of the program. ( All information that it collects is stored in the user's AppData folder, and every file can be opened and read in a standard text editor. )

Buzz Folders interacts with open/save boxes and windows explorer, by sending data ( folder paths ) directly to them. An AV program might not see this as a good thing, but if you're human and know the purpose of the program you can see it's perfectly safe.

Buzz Folders will start with Windows by default. This makes sense for a utility program you want to use everyday. Of course this can be turned off or on.

Brenda Adams Oh fiddle-d-foof! Haven't we been round and round already (everywhere) about these warnings? They aren't 'positive' warnings, as I understand it. They mean simply: you pay us to keep you safe, this is not a known vendor (to us) (I believe the vendor can contact them (say Norton, for instance), register, maybe pay a fee (I dunno) and this stuff goes away. But, it's my understanding that smaller, newer vendors just don't DO these warnings continue. It's not saying CAUTION, we've FOUND a virus. It's just saying: few users, we know very little about the vendor, do YOU want to continue to load?
Can't we stop now about this...and get on with talking about the product? (I've loaded both the Pro and the Extreme--yes, Norton asked me if I feel safe installing an unknown--I pay them for this screening; this is simply one of the services provided.) I've been using Bits stuff for years. If I ever go belly-up, I'll let u know. ;)

(PS: I am only a user. This above is just my understanding after having rec'd these kinds of warnings when installing OTHER products that don't have thousands of users and aren't set up with Norton, etc.)

Silat Is the Extreme version available?

Michael Guilfoyle when will extreme version be available on bdj ? It does seem a bit pricey
Nov 15 2012 at 12:53am Copy Link
Daniel Jackson The offer is just for the Pro version.

Of course if you get the Pro version now you can always upgrade, which gives you a 33% saving.

h b do you plan to offer extreme version at bdj at another date?
thank you for clarifying thid in advanc

Noggin The Nog The one thing I wanted was a jumplist of the last umpteen folders that I had opened, but it does not seem to provide that. And it does not uninstall cleanly.
Nov 15 2012 at 5:54am Copy Link
Amit Can it track recent opened folders of any file manager - preferably - cubicexplorer and xyplorer ?

Just need to know about them and not winexplorer and dopus which wud already be there.

Also can we open folders - recent and fav from system tray or software interface - as the bottom toolbar if can be switched off ?
Nov 15 2012 at 8:01am Copy Link
Daniel Jackson h b,
There are no plans at the moment to offer extreme on bdj.
Serendipity Nodes - Nov 15 2012 at 9:47am Copy Link
Daniel Jackson Noggin The Nog,

To uninstall, use the standard Windows uninstaller from the Control Panel.

+ You may want to check out the recently added "clickswitch" feature:

Is that what you mean by jumplist?
Serendipity Nodes - Nov 15 2012 at 9:52am Copy Link
Daniel Jackson Amit,

It doesn't track recent folders in the file managers. It does provide a list of currently open folders so that you can jump to them quickly in open/save boxes ( ).

Your Top 10 recent folders are available from the tray menu on Buzz Folders Pro. And the "bottom toolbar" can be switched on/off from the tray menu.

DroidLuvr Oh, my gosh: there are so many grumbles about virus results and version offered that no one's actually talking about the program itself :(

I'm going to ask Jesus' question again: anyone using this that can compare it to Listary? I like the look of the larger "boxes" and so forth, but Listary stays pretty inconspicuous and it works with TC...

Any more details/opinions about this Program from dev and/or users here?
Nov 15 2012 at 11:50am Copy Link
Daniel Jackson DroidLuvr,

Buzz Folders now works with TC ( assuming you mean Total Commander )

I would say Buzz Folders is much more visible and upfront - the advantage here is that all your favorite folders are clearly visible and instantly available.

Danny Have just downloaded and installed a Dutch language file, I have followed the instruction correctly, but there is no preferred language interface.
Nov 15 2012 at 2:48pm Copy Link
Daniel Jackson Danny,

If you install a language file, you will need to restart Buzz Folders for it to take effect. If you right-click the tray icon, your chosen display language will be shown there.

Herneith I have this program and it is becoming indispensible for jumping to folders when I need them.
Nov 15 2012 at 4:21pm Copy Link
DroidLuvr @ Daniel & Simone:

Thanks for the input! Yes, I meant Total Commander...

The "hidden" part It is my biggest complaint about Listary; while the unobtrusive interface is nice in some ways, this looks more instantly usable to me, without the "remembering Listary is there" learning curve -- which I haven't mastered yet ;)

Danny @Daniel Jackson

Thanks for your reply. It is true that the checked state on chosen display language. But for the rest there is nothing changed, the languages remain in English. But well, will again try to reinstall, maybe that it succeeds.
Nov 15 2012 at 10:12pm Copy Link
Daniel Jackson @ Danny

The language file won't change the Buzz Folders display language. It's only needed if your version of Windows has non-English display text, for example if your "My Documents" folder is called "Mijn Documenten".

Danny @Daniel Jackson

Okay, that is now also clear for me! Thank you for your answer!

Daniel Jackson @ Danny

The original Buzz Folders was made for use with a software music studio called Buzz:

I think that was in 2003 or 2004. I really just made it to keep track of my folders when I was making music. I actually learnt programming in order to make Buzz Folders! The first true Pro version came out in 2008 and although it worked with all programs and not just Buzz, I liked the name so it stayed as Buzz Folders.
