Default Folder X: What's new in this release
March 21, 2023

Default Folder X 5.7.6 matches custom "dark mode" file dialogs, addresses bugs and compatibility issues


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 5.7.6

  • Fixed a bug in the Finder-click feature that could disable it in some scenarios.
  • Corrected an issue with Default Folder X failing to go to the correct folder in file dialogs.
  • Default Folder X will now match its toolbar color and controls to "dark mode" file dialogs in apps that use custom dark themes even when the system is in Light Mode.
  • Fixed problems with Default Folder X not appearing in the Save dialogs of GraphicConverter and Luminar Neo on High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina.
  • Eliminated a bug in file dialogs that could cause Default Folder X to trigger macros that rely on two presses of the Shift key (yes, I know that's weird).
  • Default Folder X didn't correctly merge the /Applications/Utilities and /System/Applications/Utilities folders when showing the contents of the former in its menus. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed a problem where the helper apps for Default Folder X's buttons in the Finder toolbar would occasionally not be recognized on some systems.
  • Worked around a bug that could cause the application SpeedDock to select the wrong item in its docks when Default Folder X is running.
  • Eliminated an error that could occur when creating two new folders in a row, with the second inside the first.
  • Corrected some German localization issues.
  • Added compatibility with IBM SPSS.

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.
