Default Folder X: What's new in this release

January 11, 2016

Default Folder X 5 is available!


Default Folder X has been rewritten for El Capitan and delivers new features and an updated look. It requires Mac OS 10.10 or 10.11.

Please note that this may be a PAID UPGRADE for you.

If you have a Default Folder X license purchased before June 1, 2015, there is a $14.95 upgrade fee for this version. If you purchased it on or after June 1, 2015, your upgrade is free and your existing registration code will work in version 5.

What's new in Default Folder X 5:

  • Fully compatible with El Capitan (with System Integrity Protection turned on or off).
  • Support for tabbed Finder windows in the Finder-click feature.
  • Default folders that can be applied by file extension as well as by application.
  • Hierarchical menus can now display all folders before files.
  • Tracking of recent files as well as recent folders.
  • An integrated menu in the Finder's toolbar.
  • Configurable keyboard shortcuts.
  • More information displayed for selected files.
  • File / folder tagging with draggable recent tags.
  • A new drag & drop sidebar for quick access to files and folders.
  • An updated user interface for setting preferences, adding favorites and setting default folders.

As always, there's a 30 day free trial period for you to evaluate whether Default Folder X fits your needs. That gives us time to get you hooked :-)

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.
- Daniel Kennish
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.
