Is there a way to add shortcuts to open a particular folder in Save Dialogs and Finder Windows?

I believe the only way to do this is by using a third party utility. You will need an app where you can assign an applescript to a shortcut. A few examples of these apps :


You would then create an Applescript/Bash script that will open that folder and assign the shortcut to run that script.
