I tried to explain why Listary will do this but i think you just need to download it and try it. I mean, its free.
For me, Listary means i don't have to remember where my folders are, i don't have a flooded desktop just to be faster opening a specific program, helps me with quick searching on the internet and much more.
It's the perfect butler. No matter in which program or on what i am working on. Listary is just a shortcut away :-)
It's the tool i use a hundret times every day.

Listary is an excellent Windows productivity enhancer. The details are hard to explain without trying the application or watching some short (1 minute) videos, but it is worth taking the time. Now, I can't imagine not using Listary.

Fast, cleverly integrated keyboard style launcher

about Listary · ·

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).
