IDEA: fav and recent folder icon in any open/save dialog
« on: May 04, 2007, 03:03:29 AM »
I once had a tiny utility that did just that: place two icons in any file open, save, save as, save copy as dialog:
-favorite folders (right click on current folder added to top of list)
-recent folders that had been actually recently been used for file open/save operations

Stupid me, I lost it and hours of googling could not bring it back.
Barnacle looks like it should be simple to rewrite for this purpose, I tried but have not yet been able to come up with something anywhere near working.

Lucky you, there's a review about dialog extenders here on DC! ;)

Note for the future: google for 5 minutes. If you can't find it, ask on DC :P

DM2 does this trick and also you can define favorites.
