Please, what is or are the best dialog box enhancer/extender(s) on recent versions of Windows?
The excellent DonationCoder Review: Best Open/Save Dialog Box Extenders
was written in 2005 and last updated in October 2006. Many things have changed since then, in particular, new versions of Windows; XP has been replaced by Vista (I have 32-bit Vista) and Vista itself replaced by Win 7. Some of the programs mentioned in the review have been updated while some seem to have been more or less abandoned. New ones may have appeared; the author of AcFolders
even announced his program here and said that he had taken note of the DC review in making it in AcFolders - new file-open dialog box extender
, but it has only one other brief mention on DC that I can see, in Any dialog extenders (like FileBox Extender) for 64-bit Win 7?
. Other DC threads on dialog box extenders include:
I run Listary
, the Pro version which has favourite folders, but its main focus is on improved searching through file lists, and it doesn't have a recent folders list. Development might have stalled, too. I could go back to PowerPro
, but it's not as happy on Vista (at least with UAC On) as it was on XP, and the thought of wrestling with its configuration again is daunting. Further, neither Listary nor PowerPro support Total Commander
like some of the others do, notably Direct Folders
As I'm going round in circles, I'll repeat the first line: Please, what is or are the best dialog box enhancer/extender(s) on recent versions of Windows?
