Portable installation

If you prefer to use Quick Access Popup in “portable” mode, download and unzip this file and follow these instructions: How can I install Quick Access Popup to make it fully portable?. This will, for example, allow you to run Quick Access Popup from an external drive or USB key. And don't forget to turn auto-startup on and enable check for updates to stay up-to-date!

If you get a virus or malware alert from your anti-virus or protection software about Quick Access Popup being a potential threat, this is not the case (you can trust me… or read this setup EXE file or portable ZIP file anti-virus report by VirusTotal.com :-). Please, also read this post: How can I use QAP if an anti-virus is blocking its download or its execution?.

This new version v10 has been thoroughly tested by our team of beta testers. But if, for any reason, you have issues with QAP v10, you can install the last v9 release here (v9.5.3). Settings files for v9 and v10 are forward/backward compatible.

What's new
Version: 10.3.6 (2020-03-09)
Total Commander
- add active folders in left and right panes of Total Commander when building the "Current windows" and "Reopen a Folder" dynamic menus, and support active folder in TC for the "Reopen Current Folder in Dialog Box"; at this time, re-opening the active TC folder in a file dialog box is currently not supported for some Windows Special Folders like "My Computer" or "Recycle Bin", but this can be improved in a future release.
- fix bug doubling backticks when editing snippets
- fix bug when setting the default submenu in "Snippet Quick Add" dialog box
- the submenu where a snippet added with the "Snippet Quick Add" is saved is the current menu in the "Customize" window (if it is visible) or the menu where the "Snippet Quick Add" feature was called (for example, "My Snippets" default submenu)
- removed the option "Submenu for Snippet Quick Add" in "Options", "Snippets and Hotstrings" section (use instead the same approach as for "Add Favorite - QAP Feature" and "Add Favorite - Special Folder" described above)
- fix bug centering buttons in the "Snippet Quick Add" dialog box
Various improvements
- when clicking the "Sort" button in the "Customize" window, sort favorites based on user's locale setting (taking into account all non-English characters)
- add prompt "Click an icon to select it" to the new "Select icon" dialog box introduced in the last release
- fix bug showing the "Customize" window when calling some features from the QAP System menu (right-click on the QAP icon in Notification zone)
* Still looking for a SPANISH translator to take over the current translation.

Quick Access Popup is available in: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Korean.

  • Quick Access Popup was designed for all international versions of Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, both client and server versions, with Explorer windows, File Dialog Boxes (Open, Save, etc.*), Console Window (CMD command prompt) and many popular alternative file managers.
  • Users of Windows XP and Windows Vista are invited to use Folders Popup, previous version of Quick Access Popup, that is still supported for these OS.

* Quick Access Popup can change folders in software that use the standard Windows file dialog boxes (Open, Save As, etc.). This will work in most software. See how to activate this feature: Can I change folders in file dialog boxes (Open, Save As, etc.)?
