Direct Folders Comments

Great Add-On

I've been using Direct Folder for two years and it is a real time saver. I switched to it in Windows 10 (64-bit) after X-Files Dialog stopped working.
By adding the Direct Folders bar above save/save as dialogs, Direct Folder gives you instant access to the folders you choose, saving a ton of time and effort looking for those directories in the ordinary save/save as dialog boxes.

This is an excellent program, which I've used for several years on Windows XP and now on Windows 7 64-bit. Very handy in many ways, and very much worth trying. There's a small problem with recent versions of Firefox, which I hope the developer will soon find time to fix.
