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 (3), followed by global recent items (4).

If you have copied any file to the clipboard, there will be two extra items at the end of the menu (2). This list also contains the path to any folder currently open in Explorer (1).

Info submenu

This menu shows the amount of free space on each drive and allows the current folder to be opened in Explorer.

Other Features

This feature will make a file dialog instantly jump to the folder already opened in Explorer, Total Commander or Directory Opus. Just switch to the window you need.

File dialogs auto-resize

Direct Folders automatically resizes every standard file dialog, so that you can see a larger number of files.

Default folder Pro

Set the default folder for any application to open file dialogs in.

Testimonials & Reviews

Direct Folders is a little gem that is worth its short download time, for the dialog customization if nothing else.


I bought Direct Folders yesterday and I just wanted to say that it has got to be the best piece of software I've used for a long, long time. I just wish I had found it sooner!
