RightFolder is now a freemium product. Core functionality is always free, but you can upgrade to get dark mode, "undo" and M3U playlist creation for a one-time fee of $7.99, and use it on 2 PCs or laptops. RightFolder uses an easy-to-manage rolling registration system in case of hardware loss or theft.

Are you an avid collector of all-things-Internet (memes, animated GIFS, PDFs, videos)? Do you collect a lot of research material and need to quickly organize it into folders? RightFolder to the rescue. RightFolder was designed to allow you to quickly and accurately select files and move or copy them to their rightful folders using “profiles” that you create (with minimal typing – in most cases, you just need to enter a name for the profile).

A RightFolder profile consists of file extensions (‘TXT’, ‘GIF’, etc) and destination folders. The file extensions allow RightFolder to filter out unwanted profiles to find the one you want. Profiles (and the destination folders within them) are all given SINGLE KEY keyboard shortcuts to allow you to quickly select them. You can create up to 62 profiles (with up to 62 destination folders within each one), and select them with these keyboard shortcuts. You can select as many extensions per profile as you want (or create your own), and you can change RightFolder’s behavior for any given extension (e.g., treat an “RM” file as a text file instead of an audio file).

RightFolder is also a very capable file viewer when the optional (but strongly recommended) free-to-use programs VLC and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC are installed. RightFolder can preview:

  • Any audio or video file that VLC can handle (when VLC is installed).
  • Most images - BMP, EMF, GIF (standard & animated), ICO, JPG/JPEG/JFIF, PCX, PNG, SVG, TIF/TIFF, WEBP, and WMF. (Note that PCX support is limited, but usually works for smaller images…)
  • Any PDF file that Acrobat can handle (if Acrobat is installed, or another PDF viewer that previews in Windows Explorer). Office documents (if you have Microsoft Office or Microsoft 365 installed). (This is limited to the document types your Office installation supports.)
  • Rich Text Format (i.e., WordPad) documents (including images), and text files, with optional word wrap.

As a fallback, RightFolder’s default previewer is used to display any file type it is unaware of. If it can be previewed in Windows Explorer, it will usually preview in RightFolder too.

RightFolder can optionally play all the audio or video files (or both) in a given folder while skipping over other files (something we call “album mode”), and optionally repeat them.

RightFolder can also (optionally) auto-rename image files with the wrong extension. It currently recognizes BMP, GIF, ICO, JPG, PCX, PNG, TIF and WMF image types.

Premium Features: Dark mode, "undo" functionality to roll back almost any operation, and the ability to export single- and multi-folder M3U playlists. All for only $7.99.

REQUIREMENTS: RightFolder requires Windows 10, version 2004 (build 19041, codename: 20H1, May 2020 update) or better.

RightFolder *may* operate with older versions of Windows, with or without compatability mode, but proper operation cannot be guaranteed. For example, it has been successfully operated on Windows 10 using Windows 8 compatibility mode, but may fail when run on a real Windows 8 system. RightFolder WILL NOT run on Windows 7, but WILL run on Windows 10 on ARM (at least, in 32 bit mode - 64 bit mode on Windows 11 has not been tested). RightFolder has not yet been (officially) tested on Windows 11, but should run.

The link included here is for the 64-bit version of RightFolder. If you need the 32-bit version, it can be acquired at https://www.rightfolder.site.

Right Folder is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. If you wish to install VLC or Acrobat (and you should), please match the installers you download with the version of RightFolder you are using. Failure to do so will result in disabled functionality.
