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.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller @MBe.. . Compatible in what manner.
I have used both for years, but I don't see a need for compatibility.
Love this program and use it non-stop throughout the day.

Now has a dark mode too.
Good program and very stable.

MBe compatible in that manner, that i can for example doubleklick inside xyplorer, and the menu comes up, without the need to change to windows explorer

ron r When dopus switches to a drive mapped to a network folder, directfolders does not switch to that folder.

Example:
In dopus I navigate to z:\test, then the open\save dialog with directfolders running does not switch to z:\test.

EDIT:
Also, could the application be made portable so it doesn't require installation.
Or at the least have the option to have the contents of AppData\Roaming\Direct Folders in the application installation directory itself?

MK I bought Direct Folders Pro in 2011 via BDJ but over the years switched to Listary Pro and forgot about Direct Folders. But BDJ's listing today got me interested in Direct Folders again and I also found I got a free upgrade to v4.0, so tried it out. I've now ditched Listary and will stick with Direct Folders.
@ron r - I have Dopus and it does switch folders for me (and is one of the reasons I ditched Listary, which can switch, but not as easily as Direct Folders). But Direct Folders does seem to be "sticky" at first though and doesn't initially work properly. It took a restart of Windows 10 before settings and functions started to work correctly.

BlackOpz User Webroot MALWARE WARNING - Multiple Warnings (close.exe and 5D????.exe?). Also Double-Click doesnt work for me in Win10 inside explorer (on works on useless desktop). Has been using 3.8 until it started crashing constantly. - Cant summon from any explorer window.

Gonna RESTORE from backup and disable Webroot and let install as it wishes and see if it works. Prev version worked better (WHEN it worked). Used for ages until upgraded to 3.8 then just stopped using for standard 'Quick Access'.

I'll give another shot than add RESULT message. This might not work anymore but I hope to be proven wrong. NOTE: PRO Paid Version

UPDATE #1: RESTORED. Disabled Virus-Scanner and Installed in Program Files(x86) rather than Program Files. I installed on top of 3.8 and it kept my settings. Still cant double-click but can middle-click. Hopefullythe crashing has stopped. Still Checking...

UPDATE #2: Seems more stable putting it in (x86). Cant seem to restore double-click but middle-click is a decent sub since it lets me "ADD HERE+"

Chris The 4.0 still installs the 3.8 version. How do I get the 4.0 version?

kydara Having a problem with it. I installed, but when I try to run it, the icon (folder with a star in it) pops up for s few seconds in my system tray, then disappears. If I have Task Manager open, I see the process pop up for the same few seconds, then closes/disappears. No error messages, it just disappears. Win10 Pro. Please help.

BlackOpz User OK. **NOW** I'm Happy. Installing in "C:\Program Files (x86)" makes the program WORK in Win10. Double-Click only works on Desktop and in NOWHERE else but you can use the middle-click to bring up the menu instead. The INFO-PANEL is Da BOMB!! (nice upgrade). Everything else seems fine and I would suggest installing OVER and prev version in the (x86) folder - DO NOT INSTALL IN "Program Files" - Also the Download Email link is for the 4.0 Version (Tray Icon Has Kool Star) - Also DISABLE VIRUS SCANNER BEFORE INSTALL

kydara That didn't work for me. I did think it was odd that it was trying to install a 32-bit program into the 64-bit Programs folder, but overriding it and installing into \Program Files (x86)\ did not change the constant crashing for me. Hoping for some support from the developer here or else will have to ask for a refund.

Eric A couple of questions:

1. The offer page shows the product to be compatible from XP to Win7; what about the current Win 10-11? Just a description omission, or indeed not compatible?

2. Why is there no answer (to any of the inputs) from the Developer?

Chris I have windows 10 and it works. As for my other question I figured it out thanks to other people saying it installs into program files when it should install into program files(x86) My old version 3.8 was there and this version didn't even look for an old version and installed into program files. I uninstalled it and installed to the x86 folder over the old version.

As for the developer, who knows.

kydara Followup: I did more testing and discovered the problem (but unfortunately not the solution). As per most security experts' best practice recommendations, I run my daily Win10 machine from a non-admin account. I usually have no troubles installing software from it, sometimes just needing to enter the admin password in UAC.

With Direct Folders, when I install under a non-admin account, I get the problem mentioned above (starts, runs for 5 seconds, closes). When I install from the admin account, the app runs. BUT, when I then log out from the admin account back into the normal user account, it won't run (no access rights). Tried various iterations of TAKEOWN and manually setting access rights for every file in the folder....no dice, won't run.

I put in a ticket with tech support. I will post a followup when I've heard back from them.

@Chris, just curious, do you run your daily driver from an admin account?
