RecentX and Mac

One of our customers Harold Hauer has shown a way to access both Mac & Windows files from RecentX:

I have been using RecentX for a number of years on my PC. About a year ago, I cloned my PC laptop onto my (new) iMac. I am running Windows XP simultaneously with the Mac OS under VMWare Fusion. When I run in Unity Mode, the Windows windows appear separately as programs are called, within the Mac space. In this Unity Mode, the Recent X bar appears at the top of the desktop, just as in Windows and provides instantaneous access to Windows AND shared Mac folders and files! This program has really simplified working in both operating systems.

Thanks Harold!

Making Directory Opus work with RecentX

RecentX lets you quickly launch any file, folder, program or bookmark. What is special about it is that it automatically tracks what file & folder you access. While it successfully tracks ‘file/document‘ opened in different file managers, it can only track ‘folder‘ opened from within Windows Explorer.

Recently John (one of RecentX users, don’t know last name) showed us an innovative way of making RecentX track files & folders opened in Directory Opus.

Here is a screenshot showing steps to configure Directory Opus so that RecentX can track the files & folders opened in Dopus.
