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.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.1.9

Feature enhancements:

  • Added a new "Recently Closed" submenu to the Finder Windows menu so you can easily re-open recently closed Finder windows.
  • When the Hide Extension checkbox is turned on in a Save dialog, Default Folder X will ensure that the resulting file has its extension hidden in applications that don't properly support extension hiding (like Google Chrome).
  • Added better workarounds for a bug in High Sierra that prevents Default Folder X from knowing which item is selected in a file dialog.
  • Added an option (available with a Terminal command) to make Default Folder X use color icons in its toolbar. Enter this command in Terminal: "defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX5 colorToolbar 1"

Bug fixes:

  • The green gumdrop on the preferences window is now enabled or disabled correctly depending on whether the current preference tab is resizable.
  • Desktop and Documents folders on iCloud could sometimes confuse Default Folder X. It now correctly handles them.
  • Fixed a potential crash that could occur when Default Folder X relaunched the Finder.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Default Folder X to crash at random times.
