Windows 7: Favourite Folder Save Options

Favourite Folder Save Options

One of the features I like in Windows 7 is that I can customise the Favourite Folders that appear in the save options. For example I can in include any folder in the save list for most applications. This works for microsoft Word, IE etc. However some applications like Adobe reader and a few others do not have my favourite folders when I go to save. They just have the basic: Recent places/Desktop/Libraties/Computer/Network. Does anyoner know of a way to include my favourite folders in the list for Adobe reader and these other applications as well?

Kind Regards

Chris

There are a couple of ways you can do it:

Folder Menu 3

Filebox eXtender download

You can also change the default settings in the save dialog;

Common File Dialog Box - Customize Places Bar

A pleasure, glad to hear it did what you wanted. I assume you changed the defaults in the places menu?

Yes Mike, I used the group policy editor in Win 7 Ultimate to change the default icons in the common File dialogue box to the custom icons/places of my choice.

As I have nearly all of my data stored on a separate partition instead of the usual "My Documents" this is much more practical for me and I will save a lot of time browsing to the correct save location.

Kind Regards
