Several suggestions (and issues), if addressed could (greatly) enhance the user experience

  • Let the user drag folders into 'Oranize favorites' in DF configuration.
    Currently you can drag a folder into 'Origanize favorites' but it does not
    get properly recognized thus showing an empty path and caption.

  • Let the user add FILE items (shortcuts, exe, bat, etc...).
    Selecting that file item then runs it
    A way around this is by setting a folder as 'Show content', but dragging an file item into 'Oranize favorites' would be much faster/efficient.

  • The online help doesn't seem to work, an error page is shown

    404 Not Found -> https://help.codesector.com/links/direct-folders

    When right clicking on the systray icon and selecting 'Online help'

  • A system global hotkey that activates DF menu

  • In 'Oranize favorites' add folders directly from

    - top opened folder in windows explorer

    - from filemanager (TC / Dopus)

  • This would require an extra button called 'add from topmost active'.

    For example if the button 'add from topmost active' is clicked then DF checks

    what is the topmost window behind DF, if it is TC then fetch the path from TC.

  • Let user add commands under 'Commands' menu item

  • In Configuration > Options > disable the hotkey actions for 'Favorites' and 'Recent'

    Currently this is not possible

  • Exclude drives/folders from being tracked in history/recent

  • A modifier that let's you 'Show content' content of an menu item (folder).

  • Currently you can only do this when the radiobutton 'Show content' is selected.

    A modifier is a key like [SHIFT] for example. If [SHIFT] is pressed while double clicking it then activates the DF menu and selecting an item from the menu now shows content!

    OPTIONALLY: set a third radio button next to 'Open' and 'Show content' called 'Modifier'. When 'Modifier' radiobutton is selected the user could then select an modifier/modifier combination. For example the user adds a new menu item 'test' which refers to c:\test. Selecting the radio button 'Modifier' and then selecting [SHIFT]. Now when the user selects the menu item 'test' while [SHIFT] is pressed will now show the contents of the menu item 'test' in stead of opening it.

  • A proper portable version, currently there is an portable version
    https://support.codesector.com/en/articles/8789963-portable-version-of-direct-folders

    But that version requires you to run an bat file which copies to appdata folder.

    A version that runs 100% from the DF folder itself would be very welcome
