Flash folder is not normal software. It is actually a toolbar. But it is also not a normal toolbar for your browser or windows explorer. It is actually a toolbar for special type of Open/Save dialog boxes which you normally find in all software applications which deal with the files to open or save. For example, MS word so after installing Flash folder you will not find it anywhere else then the top of the open or save dialog box. Flash folder is actually a dock on the top of the open or save type of Dialog boxes. To see Flash Folder toolbar just open MS word or other software of this type and then click on the "file" menu and then click on the "open", now you will see a small toolbar at the top of the open dialog box. Flash folder is just to enhance the functionality of the Open and save type of dialog boxes because a normal open/save dialog box has limited functions to use. But Flash folder gives you the last accessed folder and global folders history, it also lists all the currently opened folders. In the Favorite Folders section you can save your list of favorite folders for quick access. With the show all files option you can see all files including hidden files too.
