Sorry I haven't updated this in a while! I intend to completely change the UI when I have some free time (WPF ideally), it's always irritated me.... not much will happen here for now, but later I'm going to get back to developing this!

Project Description

Folder bookmarks allows you to quickly open a file or folder you use on a regular basis. No need to navigate large folder directories, just double-click the bookmark to open it!
  • Categorize bookmarks into groups
  • Easily open the target file/folder, including it's parent folder
  • Bookmark Archiving support
  • Multi-platform support with .NET 4.0
  • Simple drag-and-drop actions

If you don't have .NET 4.0 installed, you can download it here.

Folder Bookmarks

Features and Fixes in the next version
  • A minor bug fix in the archive manager when restoring bookmarks with custom icons
  • New Keyboard Shortcuts
  • New Database design - re-wrote the database code so now bookmarks can be in multiple categories; but don't worry, I've added some code that automatically converts the existing version to the new design
  • Some other things

NOTE: The application updater isn't working at to moment. To update Folder Bookmarks, simply download the latest installer

Latest Version:
  • Custom Icons - now you can change the icons of the bookmarks. By default, whenever an image is added, the icon is automatically changed to a thumbnail of the picture. This can be turned off in the settings (Options... > Settings)
  • Ability to remove items from the 'Recent' category
  • Bug fix - 'Choose' button in 'Edit Bookmark' now works
  • Another bug fix: another problem in the 'Edit Bookmark' window

  • Changed the way that the default icons are stored and fetched; thus fixing a minor icon bug

Version: 2.1

In this version
  • Fixed a major bug that prevented the application from saving the database (my bad....)
  • Quick-access 'Recent' menu: simply right-click the icon in the task bar and click 'Recent' to open a bookmark without changing windows
  • I've brought back the Drag-to-Folder feature that allows you to copy/move files and folders to a bookmarked folder by simply dragging them to the bookmark's icon (it will still work in details view)
  • A few minor changes to the database system
  • Better built-in help
  • Fixed a bug in the 'Restore Previous Archive' code

I've finally finished re-writing over 3000 lines of code to bring you Folder Bookmarks 2.0!!! :D

  • Fresh new Database system which is faster and more dynamic
  • New simplified layout
  • Centralised category management
  • Re-order the categories, instead of alphabetically sorted
  • Better searching
  • Two new default categories: 'All' and 'Recent'
    • 'All' Displays all of the bookmarks, so this means you don't have to set a category
    • 'Recent' lists all the bookmarks you've used recently, to make it quicker to open bookmarks you use frequently (this is the default load tab), the length can be changed in the settings
  • Two different views: Icons view and Details view (for slower/older computers)
  • Completely re-designed built-in help
  • Still uses easy drag-and-drop actions
  • Archive backup/restoring, including restoring from previous versions (so create an archive if you're using a previous version)
  • Fixed a problem that prevented scrolling vertically

Due to the fact that re-writing the WHOLE of Folder Bookmarks was so time consuming, I have decided to not release the Mini-Menu with this release of the program and to instead concentrate on getting this version released.
