I missed the Norton Commander craze, but I am familiar with
PowerDesk, at least with an older version from its days as Mijenix
shareware. I liked it, especially its integrated file viewer. Looks
like it has acquired a lot more admirable features in its latest
Hope I didn't mislead anyone into thinking PowerPro is a file
manager, but I initially misread your message and thought I'd missed
a handy "favorites" feature in PowerPro. Turns out maybe I had. You
can get PowerPro to track which folders you use in Open/Save
dialogs. It can automatically make a menu from these "favorites" and
you can send a selected path to an open Open or Save dialog.
Possibly a useful concept.
