hello

is there a way to customize the 'save as' dialog box?

for example, at the left there is a list of some default folders and I would like this to be dynamic, to show the last used (recent) folders

is there a file manager that has customized 'save as' dialog boxes to replace explorer or any other way?

thanks

I believe you're looking for something like FileBox Extender.
Those are called "dialog extenders". There's even a review right here on DC about it:
Check it out here.

Hi

on today at
http://lifehacker.com/

 XNeat Boosts "Save As" Options for Document Wrangling
Windows only: Free customization utility XNeat adds a few unique functions to the rich library of tweaking utilities, and some might become must-installs for Windows power-users. The most notable are the additions to the standard "Save As" dialog: an option to create a numbered "clone" file when you're about to save over an existing document (i.e. "Paper(1).doc"), and a time-stamping utility that adds numbered dates to filenames automatically. XNeat also lets you enable drag-and-drop taskbar re-ordering, giving you your preference of left-to-right app layout, and a full set of windows management tools, including transparency and system tray docking. XNeat is a free download for Windows XP and Vista only.

The two “save as“ add ons are handy maybe not quite you want.

Xneat sounds neat but i had run into a problem which i mentioned here previously. i wonder if that behaviour is gone.



edit: @kalos: check out this thread also for more ideas. Revisiting (XfilesDialog, File-Ex, Direct Folders).
