"The Folder View concept is remarkably simple and convenient, and integrates nicely with Windows Explorer." - Locker Gnome / Snapfiles
How does Folder View work?
Most computer users use one main location where they store most of
their files: My Documents. Often, My Documents contains many
sub-folders containing other sub-folders. This structure makes it quite
a hassle to get to the right location when opening or saving files. But
that's not all: most of the time, one or two often used folders are for
technical reasons not located inside My Documents, but somewhere else.
A network location with
global company files, an
MP3-folder on a different harddisk, or a removable drive. Reaching all
these different folders takes a lot of time.
But not with Folder
View. Because Folder View enhances Windows and the Windows file
Explorer in four ways:
View adds a toolbar to
the Windows Explorer. With this toolbar, you can navigate to every
folder you use often in a single click. Every
folder you like can be added, no matter where they reside:
on the harddisk, a removable drive or the network (local, ftp,
Folder View integrates with
common Open/Save dialogs; giving you quick access to your folders from
within almost all applications. The menu has the same
structure as the toolbar in Explorer. Folder View also updates the
locations on the left side of the dialog to the folders you most
recently used (in Windows and Office 2000/XP).
Folder View integrates with the
right-click menus of files, allowing you to copy and move files and
folders extremely quickly.
View puts an icon in your system tray (near the clock), from which you
can quickly launch all folders you use often, using the same
menu-structure as the toolbar.
And the bonus is: the recent folders menu. The toolbar and the three
menus all contain a special 'Recent Menu', which remembers your most
recently used folders. This menu makes it for example very easy to
reopen a folder you accidentally closed. Or to save a file inside
the last folder you opened. Or to move a file to the last
folder you accessed. Very quickly.
