Support for the XP Places Bar



  • I would like it if Powerarchiver could use the XP standard open file dialog in its file add and extraction dialogs, with the places bar included. I find this a very useful tool to quickly access my most used folders (after editing it with TweakUI).

    As it works now Powerarchiver is really unconvenient for file selection.



  • Just a thought. What about a drop down menu\box listing “Favorite Folders”?

    I’m thinking if in PA you can define a list of favorite folders and have easy access to the list when extracting or adding you would have more flexibility than the limited number of “Places” in the OS.

    Mate, that’s the Office places bar. However, the XP places bar is praticaly the same, but has different default places and cant be modified with own places, and is accessible from all XP application.

    It can be modified using TweakUI or the registry.

    The Office Places bar(s) can be modified as well (at least for office 2003).
    In the file open dialog click Extras - add to my environment or so (below print).
