work as quickly as you do.
keyboard shortcuts put your
favorite and recent folders
at your fingertips. Pop-up
menus let you navigate your
folders and open Finder windows.
You can access the contents of your recent, favorite, and open folders right from Default Folder X's toolbar. Its hierarchical pop-up menus expand as you mouse over them, letting you navigate your folders to get to your files.

Have you ever wanted to save a file to an open Finder window? Default Folder
X lets you open up or save to any Finder window with a single click. It also
lets you get info on, rename, and delete existing files, putting the Finder's
power in every Open and Save dialog.
help you quickly return to folders you've recently used, Default Folder X remembers
them for you. It can even rebound to the last file you used in all your recent
folders. With Default Folder X, you'll never forget where you put something.
Spotlight on the spot
Mac OS X delivers amazing search
capabilities with Spotlight, but adding your own search
keywords requires a trip to the Finder's Get Info window or to an application
like Tags, Fresh,
or Tag Folders. No
more! Default Folder X lets you add Spotlight keywords, OpenMeta tags, and
Finder labels on the spot, while you're still in the Save dialog. It even remembers
keywords you've used before and automatically completes them as you type.
delivers amazing previews with QuickLook, but in Open dialogs they're small
and you can only see them in column view. With Default Folder X
you get previews below every Open dialog, expanded to fill the available space.

And if you'd rather have words instead of pictures, Default
Folder X delivers those details too. The file's size, the date you created
and modified it, the Finder label, Spotlight comments, OpenMeta tags, access
permissions - they're all there too.
Workflow without work
Rather than make you learn and set up a new application, Default Folder X blends into Mac OS X. Its pop-up menus and Finder integration will start saving you time immediately, and it will put your pre-existing Favorite folders in its toolbar right away. When you do decide to start customizing it, Default Folder X lets you set default folders and assign shortcuts right from its toolbar. Finally, effortless workflow.
