Editors' Review

Default Folder X is a system preference pane that can save you a lot of time finding and flipping through folders, especially when opening and saving files.

The primary interface pops up with every open and save dialog, across all your applications, giving you faster access to multiple folders and commands. You can jump to favorite and recently used folders (even by clicking on open windows), enter Spotlight metatags, and manage files and folders right from the dialog--so you don't need to go to the Finder for simple tasks like renaming and deleting.

Default Folder X also lets you "rebound" to the last file you were using, and you can work with recent and favorite folders right from the dock or menu bar. The fact is, once you see all the added functionality in the open and save dialogs, we think you'll wonder why you hadn't already downloaded this app.

Default Folder X may be a little expensive, but we think some will find that its smart, time-saving functionality quickly pays for itself.

What's new in version 5.1.6b2
  • This version supports the developer release of macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
  • You can now enter relative paths for Favorites. If you use a consistent structure for organizing projects, it can be very helpful to set a favorite such as "../images/" to go to an adjacent "images" folder and be able to use the same favorite in multiple locations. To enter a relative favorite, choose "Add Path or URL" after clicking the '+' icon in Default Folder X > Preferences > Folders > Favorites.
  • Fixed a problem with Default Folder X getting confused in certain situations when you clicked on an alias in column view.
  • Fixed a bug that caused unsaved comments or tags to disappear if you switched from a Save dialog to another application and then back to the Save dialog.
  • Switching folders using Default Folder X's menus now works consistently in file dialogs brought up when changing preferences.
  • Added an API that allows software developers to disable Default Folder X for special file dialogs in their Mac applications.
  • Eliminated flashing in the user interface when you click on a disclosure triangle in a Save dialog.
  • Corrected improper scaling of preview images that could occur in some circumstances.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when clicking on the sidebar in file dialogs.
  • Worked around a crash resulting from the macOS Accessibility API failing.
  • Several memory leaks and potential crashes have been eliminated.
  • Updated Default Folder X's icon.
