This is the software publisher's description.
Provides quick and direct access to your favourite folders and recent documents. Jump to any deeply nested folder in a single mouse click. Direct Folders automatically resizes every standard file dialogue, so you can see a larger number of files. Find what you looking for with less scrolling.
One of the many useful features of Direct Folders is its ability to automatically switch the folder views of open dialogues 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.
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 dialogue box, which brings up a menu.
Select a favourite or recent folder from this menu and the file dialogue 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.
