Default Folder X: What's new in this release
May 31, 2023

Default Folder X 5.7.8 fixes failures of its Finder-click feature, adds custom icons for Path Finder & ForkLift Finder-click


If you already bought Version 5, this update is free.

If you are upgrading from version 4, this may be a paid upgrade for you.

If you have a Default Folder X license purchased before June 1, 2015, there is a $14.95 upgrade fee for this version. If you purchased on or after June 1, 2015, your upgrade is free and your existing serial number will work in version 5.

What's new in version 5.7.8

  • Worked around a bug in the Finder that would cause the Finder-click feature to fail after browsing Time Machine backups. A big thank you goes to A. Bornstein, who finally found the correlation with Time Machine that allowed me to get to the root of the problem!
  • Finder-click now distinguishes between Finder, ForkLift and Path Finder windows by showing the icon of the app that owns them.

As a long-term Mac user, i have installed demo software beyond count. Yours is one of the few that I've seen the worth in investing in.

It's one of those programs that I wonder how I lived without for so long. Before I was constantly clicking through directories every time I wanted to open, save or attach a file. Now I do almost everything in just a few clicks.
