FolderView for Windows

When I use Firefox, I frequently reopen a tab I just closed by accident or click on my favorite page links that I use every day. Wouldn’t it be nice to do both of these things and more in Windows? With FolderView you can.

Download FolderView

The author’s website does not list Vista compatibility, but this program will work with Vista.
FolderView comes with the following features:

Toolbar

Folder View adds a toolbar to the Windows Explorer. With this toolbar, you can navigate to every folder you use often in a single click. Every folder you like can be added, no matter where they reside: on the harddisk, a removable drive or the network (local, ftp, web-share).

Applications

Folder View integrates with common Open/Save dialogs; giving you quick access to your folders from within almost all applications. The menu has the same structure as the toolbar in Explorer. Folder View also updates the locations on the left side of the dialog to the folders you most recently used (in Windows and Office 2000/XP).

Quick Copy/Move

Folder View integrates with the right-click menus of files, allowing you to copy and move files and folders extremely quickly.

Tray Menu

Folder View puts an icon in your system tray (near the clock), from which you can quickly launch all folders you use often, using the same menu-structure as the toolbar.

    Love this program, too bad I couldn’t made it to work with 64bit Vista :(

    It works a treat on 32bit Vista though.

    Also FolderView isn’t in development anymore. Shame, it’s in my opinion the best “frequently used folder shortcuts” -program. I mainly used the toolbar on explorer window.

    I have been looking for something like this for a while. Interestingly your page comes up on Google before the vendor’s page
