St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 2.9, its utility for navigating and organizing files and folders from within Open and Save dialog boxes. Default Folder enables you to jump to a user-configurable list of frequently-used folders, rename and delete files and folders, as well as edit file attributes such as Type and Creator information (similar to the utilities Now SuperBoomerang and ACTION Files; see "Get a Piece of the ACTION Files" in TidBITS 434). Version 2.9 adds the ability to store recent and favorite folders in the Apple menu for quick-jumping within the Finder; a Control Strip module also performs the same function. Default Folder is $25 shareware, and available as a 475K download.
