screenshot of how quick folders shortcut bar is used

Thank you very much for such an awesome tool!!

This is an enhancement request for QuickFolders where, it would be good if we
can also have a seach-box as a quick folder in the Quick Folder bar (as seen in
the attachment). 

I have several folders and ever since I came to know about QuickFolders, I
started using autohide for folder frame. I only kept most frequently used
folders in Quick Folders shortcut bar, but most often, I still have to enable
the folder frame in order to go to other folders. 

If there could be a search box within the quick folder wherein we can type the
folder name and press enter and we immediately switch to the new folder, it
would be great!!

Thanks for the suggestion; as regards your QuickFolders setup you don't have
many Tabs? (I have over 100)

May I suggest you add some for the meantime.

We can throw around some screen shots on how this could work, initially I would
probably just suggest a search button that turns into a textbox, where the user
can enter the _full_ name of the folder. The question then is what it should do
in the following cases:

- no matching folder is found
- the function finds 1 match
- multiple matches are found

Also, I would _not_ propose creating a new "temporary" QF tab for this, just
jump to the folder if a suitable match has been determined?

Illustration of how to use:
1. select the find folder command
2. enter the name (or part of it) , hit Return
3. A list of matching folders is shown (folders have no icon, tabs have an

clicking an item will jump to the folder and close the search bar.

If there is only 1 match, jump is done immediately and the search bar is


I have optimized this for having the least key strokes possible. 
It is marked as "Premium Feature" so there might be special rules attached in
the release version
