What are people saying about FolderJump

Robert Bull Please, does the "non-concurrent" license policy mean that the program can be INSTALLED on two different PCs, as long as they aren't USED concurrently? E.g., one at work, one at home?
Thanks...

Leonid Belousov Hi Robert,
Yes, you can install a copy of the software at home and at work, provided that this software is licensed to you and not *used* concurrently.
As for the free (demo) version, you can install and use as many copies of the free (demo) version as you wish.
Thanks.

S B This is a *wonderful* app.

This provides *very* easy and *extremely convenient* instant folder navigation.

I can right-click on a file or folder within seemingly any list of files in a
a) Windows Explorer/Directory Opus/XYPlorer/etc., or
b) file Open/Save dialog
and get a list of my favorite locations within a "Folder Jump" submenu in the context menu for instant navigation. The files appear in a hierarchy that I define.

(if you are in Windows Explorer/Dopus/XYPlorer it will open the folder in Windows Explorer. Otherwise it just instantly navigates there)

I also now get "View in Notepad," and "Copy paths to Clipboard" (I find these extremely useful. These can be enabled from within FolderJump's options. There's also a "Navigate to Target" for shortcuts).

Simply right-click on a folder (seemingly anywhere it appears) to be able to choose to add it to your hierarchy. Hierarchy construction is also trivially easy. You can also use aliases and add separators to the hierarchy.

FolderJump does mostly one thing, seems very lightweight, and does it *very* well. It's *very* difficult to make things so clean and easy.

A wonderful find!

Faisal Humayun I whole heartedly agree with @S B 's review.

Besides being extremely light-weight and quite ingeniously simple, I find its seamless integration with XYplorer/Dopus (win x64) to be indispensable.

I find myself using it most within "save-as" dialogs in nearly all applications as that is where it shines the most!

Bravo Leonid, I absolutely adore this kind of brilliant work and support it without hesitation. Many thanks for this promotion!

Neville Franks Looks like a very useful little app. Two problems though.

1) I just tried to purchase a copy, got to the end of the checkout and ShareIt! displayed a page "Shopping Cart Empty". I have no idea what happened, nor whether the order was processed. I assume it wasn't as I've not received any confirmation e-mail.

2) As I did this the Demo version was running with the "Properties" dialog open. When I went back to it (Explorer), Explorer was hung and had to be killed using Task Manager.

This was on a Win XP PC.

Michael R. Is there a way to call FolderJump and choose the desired directory simply by using the keyboard?

If not, is this about to come with a soon arriving update?

So e.g. a hotkey for calling FolderKey and using the arrow-keys to choose the directory or pressing ESC to leave FolderKey would be great and really a time-saver.

Frank Stephens Vista and higher already have user-defined Favorites in Explorer and File Open/Save dialogs, as well as previous/next, drop-down path and file lists, and drop-down subpath selections. Listary 3.01 does this as well as searches lists (works in most lists, doesn't depend upon the search index; the version history is way out of date).

C Kent 1. Same question as Albert C above, except regarding Xyplorer, Directory Opus, and Xplorer2 -- when invoking from within one of these file managers (windows Explorer alternatives), how to get it to open the desired target dir in the file manager from which it was invoked?

This is a MUST-HAVE feature for anyone who uses alternative file managers. If it's not there now, how quickly will you implement this?

C Kent 2. Problem #1 Using demo - no sub-folders:
I started within Windows Explorer, in FolderJump's Properties, I added several (8) NEW root-level folder targets, plus several more folders nested under some of those root-level folder targets. However, after having done so, when I now right-click from within Windows Explorer and expand FolderJump, it shows me ONLY the first TWO root-level folders that I created (which is the limitation of the DEMO version), but it shows NO sub- (nested) folders under those two. ??? If that is your intention, then it makes the demo worthless as a demo. It does nothing that I can't already do with 2 clicks in Windows Explorer.

C Kent 3. Problem #2 using demo - NOTHING in Xyplorer:
After having created multiple FolderJump target folders (see my Problem #1 above), when I now try to bring up FolderJump from within an alternative file manager (Xyplorer), it does not appear AT ALL in the right-click context menu. ?????

C Kent 4. I like that the "View in Notepad" applies not only to selected *.txt files but also to shortcuts that point to a *.txt file. However:

A. I use a Notepad alternative -- a different, superior text editor. How to get FolderJump to open my text files in my preferred editor?

B. What about other text files that do not have a *.TXT filename extension? (such as my *.INI, *.DIZ, *.BAT, *.CMD, and etc. other files that I need to open in my editor). How to get FolderJump's "open in Notepad" feature to work with those target files?

Leonid Belousov To C Kent:
1. I should take a look at Xyplorer, Directory Opus, and Xplorer2. There are so many file managers so I decided to go with Windows Explorer and TC only so far. I'm sorry about it.

2. The demo does not display menus, and this is intentional. The demo is an unlimited trial so I use a different kind of limitations.

3. Same as #1

4.
A. I will think of this additional functionality as there are several demand already.
B. "View in Notepad" should open any file type. Please note that holding the Ctrl key while clicking "View in Notepad" opens the file in admin mode.

S B I'm a new FolderJump user, but here's my take.

I'm using FJ with my main file apps, Directory Opus and XYPlorer, and FJ behaves the same as with Windows Explorer, without issue. The only thing (as I mentioned above) is that FJ always opens the new folder in Windows Explorer. I'm using Windows 7 x64.

Windows 7's favorites: Yes, and these are a good first step, but FJ 1) easily builds a hierarchy, 2) allows separators and aliases, 3) works with Windows FolderBrowserDialog to search for folders (which does not itself have favorites), 4) doesn't overwhelm the left panel in the Open/SaveFileDialog as its favorites often do, 5) works the same in Windows Explorer/altenatives, in Open/SaveFileDialogs, and in FolderBrowserDialogs, 6) includes "View in Notepad," "Copy paths to Clipboard," and "Navigate to Target" on the context menu, and for me 7) opens *all* file types in Notepad. (I also have the great 010 binary Editor to open files from my file context menu)

Listary: Listary is nice, but these particular favorites features are only available, if present, in the "Pro" version (not free, and much more expensive than this promotion) (Listary does have additional search features)

I *really* like this app, it does its job very well, instantly, quietly, intuitively, and effectively. I have purchased more than one license.

Highly recommended.

Faisal Humayun My experience pretty much mirrors @ S B. I should point out however, that FJ appears to hand off the open target folder directive to whichever file manager is registered to be the main handler.

For instance, Dopus is now my primary explorer replacement (and registered to replace explorer), so it is also where all my target folders open.

I appreciate the mention of Listary. It seems very cool, and because it appeals to my techno-lust as well as holds some promise for my productivity, I'm now using the free version in conjunction with FJ. :)

May 1 2011 at 7:48am Copy Link

Leonid Belousov To Robert Bull: Folder Jump is a COM DLL, it cannot run by itself (as an EXE), so it has to be registered in Windows using regsvr32.exe. It's better and easier to do in an installer.
I would love COM DLLs to be simply dropped somewhere in a folder and started to work "out of the box", but this is not the way it's done in Windows with COM extensions.
Of course I can make an EXE which could be put in a folder, and it would register the DLLs on the first run, but I guess this is an overkill :)

Staley The Policy states "Online license activation is required without a hardware footprint." How exactly does one activate this product?

You receive the activation key built-in into your installer copy. Once you've downloaded the installer, you do not need to go online.
However, FJ checks for the updates once a month, so this is when it needs the internet connection (but it's ok to be offline).

Jesus Perez I bought this at full price a few months ago. This software is indispensable for my every day life as a web and graphic designer. I have shortcuts to every major project I'm working on and it makes opening files a breeze. I'm particularly impressed with the way it works in so many dialog boxes. It works in save, open, export, import, Explorer...tons of places. I no longer need to spend a frustrating 5-10 seconds trying to drill down to the folder I need. It's always one right-click away. I was using free "Folder Guide" software for Windows XP before. It doesn't work with Win7, though. If you have WinXP, check Folder Guide first. I used it for years.

Joel Koltner At least on Windows 7, isn't a lot of this functionality redundant?

-- Windows Explorer and the standard open/file file requestors display their own "Favorite" list that lets you go to your, um, favorite folders with just a (double-) click.
-- Shift+Ctrl+right-clicking on a directory gets you an, "Open new command prompt here..." option.
-- You can just stick Notepad (or another text editor) in the "Send To..." folder and thereby easily send any file to it.

That's another mouse click or key press or two in some cases, but other than that... what does FolderJump do that Wnidows 7 alone doesn't (or doesn't easily)?

Not everybody enjoys Win7 :)

- I never use the standard Favorites feature. It is not handy for me, and as it turns out for many other people too.
- Does it let opening command prompt in admin mode?
- Does it let editing a file in admin mode?

VLM Well, it's difficult to do much with the demo version, because it is limited to 2 bookmarks. Would be better if one could make, say, a half dozen. Still small enough to prevent abuse, but also large enough to try in several applications.

One BIG difference I notice: In an Open or Save As dialog, Favorites appears at the top of the list. It scrolls off and does not appear in a right-click menu. Folder Jump does appear in a right-click menu and so remains accessible without scrolling to top. Unless I am missing something.

I have not yet figured out how to assign a shortcut to my Folder Jump favorite. Hmnn....

Leonid Belousov @ The Presiding Emissary etc etc etc

May be one day I will let making 3 or 4 bookmarks :)

I'm not sure about "a shortcut to my Folder Jump favorite". Do you want a shortcut to FJ properties dialog on your Desktop?

The order of the commands in right-click menus is controlled by Windows. Otherwise every plugin would be pushing their commands to the top of the list :)

What shortcuts would you like to have?

VLM Really Leonid, don't be so fearful. No one is going to steal your app because you let them make 6 shortcuts instead of 2. But they WILL be able to create and see a small hierarchy, which would be most informative to some. Look through the prospective user's eyes. :)

Regarding shortcuts, I suppose what I want is what Listary already provides: a user-defined shortcut to each and every favorite. For example, if I have a folder somewhere called "Information Technologies", then I might like to create a shortcut such as

ctrl-winkey-I

that will take me to this folder. The last thing in the world I want is yet another application that binds me to a mouse.

Make sense?

James, thanks for calling my attention back to Listary. I've had it sitting, waiting to install, since the AutoDialogs promo. Now I've begun using it ... and it's TERRIFIC!!! And the support is great, too, even for the free version.

BDJ ... Suggest you get Listary Pro on here!!!!! :):):)

You have a point. I'm going to play with the number of shortcuts in the menu.

Regarding the keyboard shortcuts, I'm not a keyboard guy but it could be a useful feature to have.

VLM LOL Leonid. I ALWAYS have a point. Whether it is a GOOD point is another matter, of course. :):)

Shortcuts, yes, I believe the world is divided into 2 groups, those who are more mouse-oriented and those who have destroyed their wrists using a mouse and/or are productivity-oriented, and who therefore greatly prefer shortcuts. I'm in group #2.

Shortcuts are DEFINITELY faster!!! Much like speech recognition (e.g., Dragon NaturallySpeaking) is MUCH faster than typing. And shortcuts exercise the mind more, too!! :)

He he, everybody has a point :) Well, and one more good point from you: if BDJ will promote Listary and HC, I will be making comments there to advertise Folder Jump :)

Hey, I've been using mouse since last century and my wrists are fine. What am I doing wrong? :)

I know shortcuts are faster, but I almost never use them. The only exception is the F1 shortcut. Anyway, I'll think about it.

I'm with you on using the mouse. It has always been easier and faster for me than the keyboard.

I just ordered your program. It would be nice to have the option to use it on my main computer and laptop using the same license, though.

A "shortcut to FJ properties dialog on your Desktop" would be an excellent addition to FolderJump. It would make manually adding links a lot easier and easy to get at.

Create a shortcut, and give it this command line:

C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe "%PATH_TO_FJ%\FolderJump%XX%.dll",Configure

Where
%PATH_TO_FJ% is the FJ installation folder
%XX% is 32 or 64, that is one of the FJ dlls.

The final answer in your case is 3 licenses, as you are going to use FJ on three your computers.

DiggerP E. Hi,
@ William Tatters,
ShareIt -redirects to secure.element5 and they do have the option to pay via Paypal.
I use a Gmail address (free) and never had problems with ShareIt, Element5 or Paypal. ( as in paying via PayPal through ShareIt)

@ Leonid,
On your page there is already an option to use PayPal,so not sure
why to add direct Paypal. ShareIt offers many options for payment.

Leonid Belousov @ DiggerP E.
True, they do have Paypal, but they (share-it) ask for an email anyway. I guess they do a complex security check based not only on the email, but IP, etc., whatever they could collect.

Gonzo According to the Policy tab in this page, the software is licensed per user. According to the conversation, it is licensed per computer.
My question is:
1-Which one is it?
2-Or is it both? (ie. each person using this will have to buy one license, even when using on the same computer)

Patrick R Has the license type changed?

An early reply of the developer said user license.

"Leonid Belousov Hi Robert,
Yes, you can install a copy of the software at home and at work, provided that this software is licensed to you and not *used* concurrently."
Feb 10 2012 at 11:45pm Copy Link

Leonid Belousov @ Gonzo, Patrick R
The license is granted to the user. One license allows to install one copy of FolderJump.
If you want to use FJ at your home computer and at work, you need 2 licenses.
"Not used concurrently" means that you can have 1 license and use FJ in several places given that at any time FJ is installed only on 1 computer and removed from the others.

Patrick R Too expensive and restrictive for me. I have 6 personal computers which I use one at a time and don't like to uninstall a program. Not used concurrently in my opinion means using a program by one named user not concurrent (at the same time when turned on!) on different devices without the hassle of uninstalling it each time. These restrictions are nice for a user which has one or two devices but not more like me.

Gonzo Thanks for clarifying.

As Patrick said, this is too restrictive a license, not only for me, but for most home users.
I'm sure many more people will buy the app if you allow 1 license to be installed (at the same time) in at least 2 computers (most home users have 2 computers), even if you restrict the usage to 1 at a time.
Just saying; not trying to be rude or tell you how to run your business.
