On Windows there are several third-party applications that can be used to improve the standard Open and Save dialogs.

I am looking for features like:

  • Being able to delete files from the these dialogs.
  • Being able to move files.
  • Remember dialog size or common directories per application (not all apps are able to do things like this).

If the solutions are commercial, please mention the price.

  • I understand the desire to know prices, but they change so why not just link to the software. – bmike May 3 '12 at 23:20
  • @bmike product feautures can also change (even more often than price) - the whole point is to give good answers, clicking links and trying each product is a time wasting. Thats's the beauti of a wiki, if it get's outdated, someone will update it. – sorin May 4 '12 at 8:57

Step one - try the free trial of DefaultFolderX (30$).

Step two - buy it.

These is no step three. It's that good.

    I was just going to post the same. It's been around for many years and never caused grief. Great piece of UI extension. – Thomas Tempelmann May 3 '12 at 23:06
  • @bmike, does DefaultFolderX suffice all features required? – Pro Backup Aug 2 '12 at 10:27
  • It suffices for the three functions mentioned, but does much more than the OP has asked. – bmike Aug 2 '12 at 14:10
