I was wondering if it's possible to code a simple program that keeps tracks of your recently opened folders (preferably configurable number of items in the list). I have tried some programs that does this and some more, e g Direct Folders, but my experience is that they don't do the job the way I want to. Often these are programs that lets you access your favorite folders by right clicking for example the windows close button and  their history only keeps track of the folders you opened this way.
My idea is a program you can access either by right clicking an icon in the system tray or better still, right clicking the titlebar on any window. It should then pop up a list of your recently accessed folders. This list should contain folders either accessed through explorer or through the open/save dialog.

Thanks for the tip mouser smiley However I can safely say I've tested most of those programs and they don't quite do it the way I would like.
