Change Windows Save/Open dialogs with PlacesBar Editor


Whenever you open the Open/Save dialog box in Windows or in Microsoft Office, you will notice 5 buttons on the left hand side. PlacesBar editor is a small utility which allows you to modify these buttons.

Just open the utility and select the folders which you would like to use instead of the default ones and choose save. You can also use it to add 5 more buttons to Microsoft Office PlacesBar.

If you want your old settings back, you can always do so by using the ‘default’ button. There are other ways to do it too by modifying the registry but PlacesBar makes it much easier.
