    • Discontinued An application with last real change in July 12 (quick fix in Dec 12) really seems to be discontinued. The application was well working - but with NO feature update in almost 21/2 years I feel sorry for the 25$ I spent. Many parts of the application need a makeover - the graphics too. The modern logo they present on the product site is only there, the graphics of the app is from last millenium almost. More than 2 years ZERO maintenance - a pity.Please mark this app as discontinued - eventhough Code Sector still sells it. same price. a pity too.

Folder View Comments

Slowed computer down

Negative Comment by axs221
about Folder View and Folder Menu, Chameleon Explorer Oct 2011

I didn't like this one as much as Chameleon Folder or Folder Menu. This one slowed down my right-click menu in Explorer, because it loaded a Copy To... context submenu that was very slow to read folders. Good idea but I have too many folders for it to take its time on.
