Listary Comments

Fast, cleverly integrated keyboard style launcher

Positive Comment by pixelspartan
about Listary Sep 2014

Works without a hitch on Windows 8.1. Gets faster to use once the contextual keyboard shortcuts are applied. I hate manual folder tree navigation in the open/save dialog. Listary solves this elegantly (like Default Folder X).
