Looking for a utility that keeps track of folders accessed.

Hi,

Is there a utility that keeps track of folders visited that can be
accessed whenever you need to select a folder, such as in explorer or
an open folder / save file dialog?

This would be a real timer-saver!

Regards.

Matt.

Hi Susan,
checking your link above I saw a typo in the description of the following
program "Change Icon":

Description: Change Icon uses a _fonction_
The descriptions are usually copied and pasted from the author's web
site. Sometimes I correct typos and/or grammatical errors, mostly I
don't. . . life is too short. . . ;)

If you use 2xexplorer instead of Windows Explorer, it has bookmarks that
you can bookmark folders. very handy. http://netez.com/2xExplorer/

DMEXBAR

http://www.simtel.net/pub/pd/59298.shtml

From the help file....

DMEXBar is an extension for the explorer toolbar.

DMEX appears in the toolbar area of the windows explorer showing some new
buttons to extend the explorer by a wide range of new features like:

- Open two explorer windows being aligned side by side.
- Fast copying and moving of files between two aligned explorer windows by
shortcuts.
- Tile all open explorer windows on the screen
- Rename, change date or change attributes of multiple selected files at
once with wildcards.
- Creating "Hot Paths", which are like the "Favourites" in the Internet
Explorer, for simple and fast change to these directories
- Open DOS shell windows or run any other user-specified programs using the
current directory or selected files as parameters

- Create new subdirectories - only one mouse-click away
- Select and deselect files with wildcards
- Expand and collapse partial tree branches in the tree view of the explorer
- Split and reassemble files
- Compare and synchronise directory trees
- Substitute directories as drives (NT compatible OS only)
- Copy path and filename information of the selected files to the clipboard
- Calculate the total size or used disk space of directories including all
subdirectories

- ... and some more

TaskTracker™ takes the Windows® Explorer and turns it inside out.
Say goodbye to tedious searches for files in Windows' convoluted
file system. Now you can get to the files you want to work with -
and open, copy, rename, or move them - right away without having to
remember where you left them.

With TaskTracker, your files are right where you need them all the
time. You may have gotten used to the Windows way of doing things,
but no matter what level of Windows user you are, keeping track of
your files is probably a low point in your Windows experience.

TaskTracker automatically tracks all kinds of Office documents; jpg,
gif, and other image formats; mp3, wma, and other music files - and
many, many other documents types you work with on a daily basis.

You can sort file types alphabetically, by frequency of use, or by
most recent use - and you can sort the files of each type by date of
modification or creation and by their names or folder paths. The
files you last worked with will already be at the top of the list,
if that is what you want. Or you can filter files according to time
periods of your choosing, like yesterday, last week, or a month ago.

The longer you use TaskTracker, the more files it tracks and the
more useful it becomes as the single point of access for all your
document-centered Windows work. </quote>

snapfiles.com lists this as freeware. From the License.txt file in
the download:

This software is FREE TO USE. You are free to use it

Renewing TaskTracker

TaskTracker renewal is free. The reason TaskTracker expires is to
ensure that all users have an up-to-date and supportable version.*

From your TaskTracker About box, you can see how many days you've
been using TaskTracker. Click the Update link after Day 75. If you
encounter a problem or have a question, send mail to
(e-mail address removed).

*There have been many point releases of TaskTracker since its
initial release, and this process of refinement and improvement will
continue. </quote>

The graphics onsite show folders as being tracked along with a long
list of other files.

This sounds like "donationware" (sponsorshipware?), but could be
construed as freeware as long as a new version is installed every 90
days.

HTH,
Tony

Many thanks - this is perfect for Save/Open dialogs. It would be great
if it also worked in the explorer windows. But, hey, it's a start! :)
YW :)
