Default Folder X: What's new in this release
September 26, 2022

Default Folder X 5.7 delivers Ventura compatibility, integration with Find Any File, and fixes for iCloud and OneDrive


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

  • Added support for macOS 13 Ventura.
  • Default Folder X now requires macOS 10.13 High Sierra or higher.
  • Fixed problems with the tracking of recent items on Microsoft OneDrive.
  • You can now search the current folder with Find Any File if you have it installed on your Mac.
  • The icon for Favorites in the popup menu within Default Folder X's "Move", "Copy" and "Make Alias" dialogs is now correct.
  • When you open a document in iCloud Drive that has not yet been downloaded, Default Folder X will correctly re-select it the next time you use an Open dialog.
  • The "Default to the current document's folder in Save dialogs" feature will work correctly in Microsoft Word when the document resides on your local drive. It will not work when the document is located on OneDrive due to the way Word handles those files.
  • When displaying your home folder, Default Folder X's path menu could mistakenly identify it as iCloud Drive instead. This has been fixed.
  • Default Folder X's ShowMenu AppleScript command now respects the "Open folders in the frontmost Finder window" preference.
  • Eliminated an error that could cause a system beep after switching to a new folder in a file dialog.
  • Corrected some French localization issues.

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.
