Quick and Direct Access To Favourite Files or Folders With ‘Direct Folders’

Opening, closing, maximizing or minimizing Windows folders might be time consuming, troublesome and laborious. Sometimes when you are in a hurry, the process to locate some files in particular folders can be very irritating. If this problem annoys you most of the time, you can actually try a Freeware application, Direct Folders, which can smoothen your navigation steps to locate folders or files in your Windows System.

With Direct Folders, you will have direct and quick access to your favourite folders and recent documents with just a single mouse click. This application is also able to resize every standard file dialog automatically so that users can see a larger number of files in one go. Another useful feature of this application is its ability to automatically switch the folder view of open dialogs to thumbnails, list or details depending on the application you are working with. You can select your preference of file sort order to be the default as well.

How does Direct Folders work? There are several ways to access Direct Folders. One of the easiest is to simply double click in the empty area of the desktop, Explorer or File Open/Save dialog box, which brings 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 or another file manager. Users can see the Demo via here.

Direct Folders only works under the Windows Operating System. The latest version Direct Folder 3.3 has been released lately and it is available free for home users. Users can download it for home use via the link here.
