Editor's review

Most users have a few folders they tend to access very frequently. Not everything can be put into My Documents folder, and there's usually a separate folder for downloaded files, another for saved webpages, yet another for sound files and so on. Shortcuts are a handy thing when it comes to saving time on browsing to the desired folder, but they don't work in most applications where you encounter the task of opening files. Use Pathbuddy to create folder shortcuts that would work in all applications.
Pathbuddy is a Windows Explorer add-on that lets you define hotkeys for selecting folders in any application that lets you browse through directories to open or save a file. You define the keys (can be any number or letter on the keyboard plus the Win key) and the program instantly starts watching your actions to supply the defined directory in an application.
The good thing about this tool is that it works right out of the box and doesn't require to write any registry entries etc., so that you don't have to worry about messing up your system with a yet another add-on. The bad thing is that the program has to be running at all times, and that means both eating resources and taking up place in the system tray. Download it today and check it out yourself.

Publisher's description

Pathbuddy lets you define hotkeys for selecting folders in almost any program's Open & Save dialog (as well as Windows Explorer). Normally, when you open a Save dialog, you need to navigate to the folder that you want to use, which can often be annoying. Pathbuddy allows you to switch the dialog to any of your favorite folders instantly, by simply pressing the WinKey + a custom letter/number. So for example, if I wanted to save a file in C:\Testfiles\stuff\etc\ - I could just press WinKey+W on my keyboard to switch the dialog to that folder. If you don't want to remember all your shortcuts, you can press WinKey+A at any time to bring up a list that allows you to simply select the folder.
