How It Works

FolderJump is a simple and handy add-on for Windows Explorer. It is compact and installs in few seconds.
It helps you switching in 2 clicks between the folders of your choice.

FolderJump appears in context menus of Windows Explorer and standard «Open File» or «Save File» dialog boxes as «FolderJump» item with a submenu.

Bookmark your favorite folders! Organize the favorite folders into hierarchical submenus!

Click a bookmarked folder, and FolderJump will instantly bring it to you right into the same window of Windows Explorer or Open/Save dialog box!

FolderJump can help you even more by giving you 3 small but very useful additional context menu commands, and they are FREE.

Every such a command can be turned on and off according to your needs. When enabled, the command appears in the menu next to the «FolderJump» command.

So the commands are:

Open in Editor

Note: Holding down Ctrl+Open in Editor launches the editor in Administrator mode.
This can be useful when modifying files in the system protected folders such as %ProgramFiles% or %Windows%.

Command prompt from folder

Launches CMD.EXE using the selected folder as working directory.

Note: Holding down Ctrl+Command prompt from folder launches CMD.EXE in Administrator mode.

User Interface

Properties Dialog

You use «Properties» dialog to manage your favorite folders list: add new, edit, change order and nesting level, and remove elements. You activate this dialog by clicking «Properties…» menu item in the FolderJump's context menu.

Navigation arrows (screenshot)

Using the arrow buttons, the items in the tree can be moved up and down, and also indented/unindented making nested submenus.
