Default Folder X 4.7.3 runs on El Capitan if you disable System Integrity Protection, and also fixes several compatibility issues. We recommend that all Default Folder X users update to this version.

This update is FREE if you own a license for version 4. If you have an older copy of Default Folder X, there is a $14.95 upgrade fee for this version. If you need to purchase an upgrade, you can do so by clicking here.

What's new in Default Folder X 4.7.3:

  • Fixed problems when running under beta versions of El Capitan. Note that to run this version of Default Folder X under El Capitan, you must disable System Integrity Protection. A new version of DFX that's fully compatible with El Capitan is in the works.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in Default Folder X refusing to let Carbon apps specify the starting folder for a file dialog.
  • Corrected rebound code so that Default Folder X won't mistakenly select a folder when the previously selected file is no longer there.
  • Default Folder X used to prevent applications from defaulting to the iCloud folder because OS X forced all iCloud-enabled apps to start there and few people actually wanted that to happen. Yosemite no longer does this, so Default Folder X now treats iCloud Drive like any other folder.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in the iCloud menu item in the Disks menu having the wrong keyboard shortcut (command-shift-A instead of command-shift-I).
  • Updated for compatibility with Strata Design 3D CX 8.

As a long-term Mac user, i have installed demo software beyond count. Yours is one of the few that I've seen the worth in investing in.

It's one of those programs that I wonder how I lived without for so long. Before I was constantly clicking through directories every time I wanted to open, save or attach a file. Now I do almost everything in just a few clicks.

Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.6.8 through 10.10.5
