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.

Gary User I can't figure out how to get it to open a particular directory. For example, when I try to save a screen capture, the screen capture program opens a save dialog with its default save location (mypics) but I want usually want to save the capture in one of three other folders. So I added those folders to the list of folders in direct folders, but when I click on one of those in the direct folders dialog nothing happens. What am I missing?

Roar Krogstad Hi,
After downloading and installing the Direct Folders, I'm trying to register the software. Iæve tryed all tree procedures described in "How to register your software", but none of them is working.
What can I do?

Mustang How do I get this to work with DOpus? There is nothing in the help file or the forums.

Duane User I've been using Direct Folders for a couple of decades. It started having problems a few years ago but they completely rewrote it and now it's solid. It works fine with DOpus. Why should DOpus discuss Direct Folders? It has its own favorite folders but Direct Folders is valuable for File Open and Save As. This should be the Pro version because the non-pro version is free.

Ed I'm having issues with it working properly in Windows 11. Ticket opened with the vendor, but frankly there are several others who have posted in the developers forum about the compatibility issue and there's been no response from the devs for months.

So, heres question for the developer - is this software dead and no longer being developed?

Duane User I'm a user, not the developer. I'm sure it is in production. I updated in 2022. It seems unlikely that it would not work in Windows 11, but who knows?

Robert Crombie MUSTANG,
You have to make DO the default program for file managing.
I know this because I made XYPlorerFree my default, and Direct Folders opens XYPlorerFree on my PC.
HOWEVER before you set DO as your default, be aware that DO has an annoying habit. I like DO to remember my tabs from previous session.
If DO is called (opened) by another program, it flushes it's recall of previous tabs down the toilet (the memory is gone forever).
In fact that is the reason I made XYPlorerFree my default - to prevent DO discarding my last session's Tabs.
PS I hope DO reads this.
