    Want 'on top', 'favourite folder' buttons on app & other title bars?


    Want buttons for 'on top', 'favourite folders', 'recent folders' and more on many of your Windows?

    Actual Window Manager, which adds the buttons, is not free, but can be obtained effectively for free with the Trialpay scheme.
    Actual Window Manager: Multiple Monitors, Virtual Desktops, Windows Control and Other Useful Tools.
    Actual Title Buttons just adds buttons, so is simpler and cheaper - but also available via TrialPay
    Actual Title Buttons Order Center

    Note the extra buttons on the title bar:
    1. Commands (drop down list) - = buttons not shown
    2. On top - pins the window to stay on top of others.
    3. Minimise to try

    There's a wide range to choose from, and these apply to any window except for those without borders - typical example: multimedia programs.

    The buttons are applied to Firefox.

    Explorer and open/save dialogue buttons include favourite folders and recent folders.

    That's Groove, with Wordpad and the open/save dialogue, showing a simple favorites dialogue.

    And here's the main GUI for the program- lots to explore.

    I thought I'd post this, as having used FileBox eXtender (free, discontinued) for years, I started looking for a modern equivalent. I couldn't find an effective freeware program that worked well enough (there are 2 or 3 such as Extrabuttons, Chamleon Window Manager Lite), and was surprised it integrated with Windows apps.
