I use windows xp sp 3 and I use the classic view and classic windows mapping in the folder options.

When I open things in a folder on the desktop using Folders Popup then the navigation pane opens too.
Could you delete that function please? I mean the navigation pane on the left of the screen, I don't use it since the beginning of windows xp, because it takes space. It only happens when opening clicking on an empty space on the desktop.

Every time I open a folder with Folders Popup then the explorer bar open too. Could you delete that function please? I mean the explorer bar on the left of the screen in a folder, I do not use it since the beginning op windows xp, it takes space.

Folders Popup doesn't work in some of the windows fileboxes in xp. Please test all possible fileboxes and you will notice that some don't work.
That is also the case with other alike programs.
Is it even possible to make all fileboxes work.

If you have trouble downloading, just use any VPN like Betternet. I downloaded it with Betternet Chrome extension.

Folders Popup users based on Windows 7+ systems are invited to give a try to Quick Access Popup (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2765), the next generation of Folders Popup.

As with Folders Popup, you will continue to save thousands of clicks while browsing your favorite folders in Windows Explorer or file dialog boxes. But, in addition, you will use it to launch your most used applications, documents or web sites instantly with this easy popup menu and mouse/keyboard shortcuts manager. Gather related favorites in submenus. Assign favorites to keyboard or mouse shortcuts. Group favorites and launch then in one click. Switch to any open window or reopen in dialog boxes folders open in Explorer.

Folders Popup and Quick Access Popup should be listed as separate applications as FP will continue to be supported for Windowx XP/Vista users as a distinct app (with its own version numbering).

v5.2.2

Some suggestions for this awesome program:

1. At the moment one can only add folder links. It would be great if there was support for adding browsable directories. Another program called LaunchbarCommander allows this and it's very efficient. I'm aware that one can add submenus, but there isn't recursive support, which means a lot of manual labour. My folders are arranged in such a way that adding only one or two directory links will give me quick access to almost all my files.

One thing I don't like about LB is that you can't click folder links directly in the recursive menus, only files, which means making a right-click and left click instead of only one left-click.

2. Add ability to hide the bottom contents of the menu (eg, folder groups, copy path, etc). Obviously the support freeware link can stay there, but I feel that the other stuff takes too much real estate, especially when they're not used very often. Perhaps they can also be put into their own submenu, by user choice.

Great little program, although i don't use it every day, it comes in very handy every once in a while.
But.. i have to agree with the previous 2 commenters, if you ask for anything in return, either donation or an act (writing this review) can not be called freeware.

v5.1.2
