Default Folder X: What's new in this release
February 3, 2022

Default Folder X 5.6.4 fixes tracking of OneDrive and other cloud-sync services, addresses an issue with Chromium-based browsers and corrects bugs with Save dialog sizes


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 5.6.4

  • Updated the handling of cloud-synced folders so recent files and folders are correctly tracked on OneDrive, Dropbox, Box Sync and Google Drive. Apple is rolling out updates in macOS that require changes in the way all of these sync services operate, so sync software will need to be up-to-date as well as Default Folder X.
  • Worked around a bug in Chrome, Vivaldi, Brave, Opera and Edge browsers that made it impossible for Default Folder X to turn off the "Hide Extensions" checkbox in their Save dialogs when it needed to.
  • Fixed the instructions for authorizing Screen Recording so they include steps to click on the lock icon in System Preferences if you haven't already done so.
  • Corrected several bugs that could result in Default Folder X automatically expanding or minimizing Save dialogs when it shouldn't.

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.
