Please don't forget that Default Folder is shareware! This is a free update for all Default Folder 3.x users. If you purchased Default Folder 2.x after January 31, 1998, the upgrade is also free. If you've been using Default Folder for longer, you'll need to purchase an upgrade code. You can register or upgrade online with Kagi's secure registration server.

What's New

Version 3.1.5 includes the following changes:

  • For the security-conscious, Default Folder's recent folder menu now includes a "Forget recent folders" command so Default Folder won't let others know where you've been.

  • A bug was corrected that prevented Default Folder from adding a folder containing a double-clicked file to the Recent Folders list.

  • Default Folder will no longer disable Navigation Services in any Carbon application, regardless of the settings in Default Folder's preferences. Carbon applications require Navigation Services in order to function correctly.

In my opinion, it's the single most important add-on a Mac user can get!
- Ross A. Reyman
Default Folder is one of the coolest, most useful things I ever dropped in my system folder, and one of the first to get dropped back in when I update the system and the last to get dropped out when I'm having extension problems.
- Nick Wilde
I spend about half my time building and maintaining web sites and can't imagine doing it without Default Folder giving easy access to the multitude of files spread across various disks. It's one of those features that should have been built into the MacOS. Since it wasn't, I'd say it should be added to every web builders' toolkit.

System Requirements
Default Folder works on Macintoshes running System 7.1.2 through 9.2.2, as well as in the Classic environment of Mac OS X.
