What is Direct Folders?
Access your folders from anywhere Just double click on an empty area located on the Desktop, Explorer or File Open/Save dialog box to bring up a menu. Select a favorite or recent folder from this menu and the file dialog immediately jumps to that folder. If you activate this menu from the desktop or tray icon, this folder will be opened in Windows Explorer. Now you can jump to any deeply nested folder in just a single mouse click! It also automatically resizes every standard file dialog, so that you can see a larger number of files. You will be able to find what you are looking for with a lot less scrolling.
Recent submenu This submenu displays a list of folders you have recently opened. First are the recent items in the current application, followed by global recent items. If you have copied any file to the clipboard, there will be two extra items at the end of the menu. This list also contains the path to any folder currently open in Explorer.
Info submenu This menu shows the amount of free space on each drive and allows the current folder to be opened in Explorer.

- added Lightweight as a feature to Direct Folders
- reviewed Direct FoldersI like Direct Folders because it is the closest I have come to a direct replacement for Filebox Extender. It allows you to save favorite directories for quick access especially in file dialog boxes for saving or opening files. Listary has some of this functionality and more but I find both together brings the best experience.
