IDEA: Bookmarks on Windows 7 Explorer menu
« on: February 07, 2012, 07:49:37 AM »
Hello,

I am seeking a utility/add-in/hack that puts a dropdown menu in Windows 7 Explorer menu bar so that I can add bookmarks to it.  Also, when I click on one of the bookmarks it should open that folder in the current Explorer window--not a new one.

I should be able to order/sort the bookmarks, create separators, and folders similar to Firefox.

The Favorites and Libraries features currently built into Explorer is stupid in that I must first scroll to it.

I do not want to use an explorer replacement.  I have tried dozens and either they don't work the way I need them to work, or they do but they are buggy.  I use "Classic Shell" so the native Windows Explorer is fine now except for the lack of bookmarking.

Thank you in advance,
Mark

Have you tried Filebox Extender? Among other things, it adds a little heart on Explorer windows and open file dialog boxes that when clicked gives handy access to a menu of bookmarked folders.

Thanks app103.  I've got it downloaded and am giving it a test drive.  I think it will do the job.

I appreciate the link.
