Meta Folders are short names for special folders used by Windows, e.g. the My Documents meta folder represents the actual path to the folder Windows uses to store your documents, typically something like:
"C:\Documents and Settings\FileBoss\My Documents".
Meta folders are enclosed in angle brackets and can be used like a normal path, e.g. <My Documents>\Letters.
Bookmarks are also treated as Meta Folders by FileBoss so you can insert a bookmark name in the angle brackets to specify the full path of the bookmark.
Enter any bookmark to go directly to that folder. Bookmarks must be enclosed in angle brackets, e.g. <Pictures of Mom>.
The following is a sample list of Meta Folders that FileBoss recognizes along with their short abbreviations.
To use a meta folder simply enclose its name or abbreviation between angle brackets, e.g. <Windows> or <W>.
You can also add on to Meta Folders such as <Windows>\system32 will display the system32 folder under your Windows folder.
For those familiar with Windows conventions you can also enclose meta-folders within percent signs, e.g. %desktop%.
