Default Folder X: What's new in this release

May 11, 2017

Default Folder X 5.1.5 adds support for minimized Save dialogs and delivers fixes for a number of issues.


If you already bought Version 5, this update is free.

If you are upgrading from version 4, 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 on or after June 1, 2015, your upgrade is free and your existing serial number will work in version 5.1.

What's new in version 5.1.5

  • Default Folder X now recognizes Save As dialogs when they're in 'minimized' mode. Because it can't provide its full functionality in that state, it provides a button to maximize the dialog so you can take advantage of its full feature set.
  • Eliminated a bug that could cause Default Folder X to unexpectedly quit.
  • Corrected a problem that could cause the Save button to stop working in some Save As dialogs.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Default Folder X to function incorrectly if you clicked the app's icon in the Dock while it was displaying a file dialog. This affected Office 2011 and older Adobe Creative Suite apps, among others.
  • Corrected a problem with Default Folder X not working correctly when its toolbar overlapped the Dock.
  • Default Folder X's toolbar no longer disappears when using a shortcut containing the Control+Option modifier keys.
  • Fixed a bug that caused shortcuts containing the Shift key to display incorrectly in Default Folder X's menus.
  • Remedied problems with shortcuts not working when the Caps Lock key was on.
  • Corrected some visual glitches that occurred with Default Folder X's 'minimal toolbar' appearance.
  • Improved switching between Spaces while a file dialog is open.
  • Eliminated several memory leaks.

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.
