The Windows OS was built on dialog windows. Every time you need to open or save a file, for example, Windows opens the dialog window. We are faced with these windows every day, at work or home when using a PC. The most inconvenient disadvantage of the dialog window is the manual selection of the folder where you want to save a file, especially when working with a large amount of files and directories. But the solution already exists – Actual Window Manager.

Actual Window Manager 7.2 got two additional title buttons: Recent Folders and Favorite Folders. These buttons are available only in Windows Explorer and open\save dialog windows.

2.1. Recent Folders

The first button is called Recent Folders. You’ll see the list of a few last opened folders when clicking this button. It allows you to open the desired folder very quickly; making it is very convenient when working with the same type of files.
