OSX question here: My mental default, albeit lazy, way to save files is to command + s, then when the "Save To" prompt comes up, command + d to browse to the Desktop, then Save.

I'd like to use command + d to open a different folder on my Desktop to hide the clutter.

How can I remap command + d to browse to a different folder?

Default Folder X allows adding custom shortcuts for folders (that will also be available in Finder).

Well, it sounds like it'll do the job, but $35 for just one hotkey swap? I'm ambivalent about the value of this utility. – nipponese May 15 '12 at 4:14
@nipponese I'd never buy Default Folder X either, but someone had to mention it. I don't know any other apps like it. Or any way to change the folder with AppleScripts, other than to emulate pressing ⇧⌘G and typing the folder path. – user495470 May 15 '12 at 4:40
