    Options for "Save As" context menu


    Hi All
    Quite frequently I have to save files to different directories and subdirectories on the Data partition.
    Is it possible to add more options to this menu?
    Thanks :-)

    Hello Kiwig,

    This would be called the places bar in common file dialog boxes.

    The places bar is limited to only having up to 5 items that can be in it. The tutorial below can help show you how to change the items to what you would like instead.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi Brink
    Thanks for your time to reply.
    It is unfortunate that there is no possibility to have more than 5 places. To be honest I find it a bit odd.
    I guess one of the system restrictions and maybe as a consequence that not many people have pushed for anything else?
    It would help me quite a lot.
    Many thanks for your ever-going support!
    Kind Regards
