Save Time and Get to the folders YOU want!
"When I'm looking over someone's shoulder that doesn't have Default Folder installed, I just marvel at the amount of time it takes them to navigate their machine … :)" — Ian Haigh
Save your files effortlessly and open your folders instantly – Default Folder X makes Mac OS X's Open and Save dialogs work as quickly as you do. Custom keyboard shortcuts put your favorite and recent folders at your fingertips. Pop-up menus let you navigate your folders and open Finder windows. Open, save, and get back to work: Default Folder X is workflow for the rest of us.
You can access the contents of your recent, favorite, and open folders right from Default Folder X's toolbar. Its hierarchical pop-up menus expand as you mouse over them, letting you navigate your folders to get to your files. To work faster, you can assign a keyboard shortcut for all of your favorite folders. If an Open and Save dialog isn't open, then you can use Default Folder X's menu bar, Dock icon, or keyboard shortcuts.
Real Time Saving
If you're constantly saving things inside the same folder, Default Folder X can remember that folder for you. You can even set a different default folder for each application you use. That way, you'll already be in the right folder when you're working.
Have you ever wanted to save a file to an open Finder window? Default Folder X lets you open up or save to any Finder window with a single click. It also lets you get info on, rename, and delete existing files, putting the Finder's power in every Open and Save dialog.
To help you quickly return to folders you've recently used, Default Folder X remembers them for you. It can even rebound to the last file you used in all your recent folders. With Default Folder X, you'll never forget where you put something.
Spotlight on the Spot
Mac OS X delivers amazing search capabilities with Spotlight, but adding your own search keywords requires a trip to the Finder's Get Info window. No more! Default Folder X lets you add Spotlight keywords on the spot, while you're still in the Save dialog.
Workflow Without Work
Rather than make you learn and set up a new application, Default Folder X blends into Mac OS X. Its pop-up menus and Finder integration will start saving you time immediately, and it will put your pre-existing Favorite folders in its toolbar right away. When you do decide to start customizing it, Default Folder X lets you set default folders and assign shortcuts right from its toolbar. Finally, effortless workflow.
"I have used Default Folder for years now and I can't begin to fathom how many hours it has saved me…. I cannot imagine doing my job without Default Folder X." – Michael Keckhaver
"During the past week alone, the ability to navigate to a folder simply by clicking a finder window has saved me a few hours of work. Thank you for creating a wonderful utility that makes my life easier every day and makes my Mac more Mac-like." — David Schroeder
"I'm quite amazed at the brilliance of the latest Default Folder upgrade, providing Quick Look visuals of file contents. It's exactly what was needed, and a remarkable time-saver."
— Professor Mike Alleyne, PhD, Middle Tennessee State University
Default Folder X's toolbar
One the right side of every Open and Save dialog, Default Folder X puts a convenient toolbar. This toolbar has five pop-up menus: a utilities menu, a computer menu, favorite folders, recent folders, and open Finder windows.
Utility. The utility menu has lots of power. With it, you can get info on, rename, and delete files, just like in the Finder. You can also assign a default folder for every application to open to, or assign a different folder to each application.
Computer. The computer menu reveals the contents of your hard drive and external disks. It also has shortcuts to your Home folder and your Desktop.
Favorites. When you first start Default Folder X, it will automatically synchronize with the folders in your library's favorites. After that, you'll be able to add and remove favorites with this menu.
Recent folders. Default Folder X tracks your recent folders—up to 100. This menu can show you those folders either by date or name, and you can cycle through them with a keyboard shortcut.
Finder windows. Default Folder X knows what folders are open on your desktop, and lists your open Finder windows in this menu. Save to them or jump to their contents.
