    How Do I: enable recent folders like Mac Os Finder does? (more)


    The only thing I miss on Windows coming from the Mac side, is when you save in one application, then switch over to another, and when you go to open a file the Finder points you back to where you were before. It's a simple and very effective timesaver. I didn't have to fish and drill through folders, even on the office network.

    On Win10, I'm constantly drilling down from top level. I know there's a way to enable this, as it was an active feature way back in 98se. I hope MS didn't remove this.

    Example: Making photo edits in Adobe PS, save to disk. Switch over to InDesign, click on Place, and instead of being greeted with the last location I saved the InD file, it brings up the location of the just-edited photo. Clicking on File/Save takes me to previous location InD file was saved.

    Windows 98se and XP Explorers could be enabled to do this. I haven't been able to get 7 or 10 to, though. Can this be done?

    A 3rd party program like Listary perhaps? (free/commercial).

    E.g. CTRL CTRL adds a box below an open/save dialogue, click one of the icons to get favourites/ recent etc lists, click on one of those for the open/save box to open that folder.

    Example- Listary box below open dialogue box for Kingsoft (WPS) Writer.

    I also still use Filebox Extender (not supported) which has convenient recent/favourite buttons in the title bars of many open/save boxes and file explorer. However, sadly it is showing its age in a couple of respects.
