I can't be the only person who finds it annoying to have to constantly navigate back to the last-used folder when opening and saving files. Does anyone know of a utility that can fix this?

Dialog Box Assistant for XP did a fantastic job of this. It would also remember last-used files and keep a user-defined list of favorite files and folders, all in two little buttons in the Save and Open dialogs. Too bad the developer moved on to other things. :(

That is app specific for the most part. I have some apps that remember the last used location, and others do not.

But it was possible in XP with Dialog Box Assistant. Seems it should be doable in 7, just needs a talented developer.
