Is there a file manager for Windows that has a running history of the last X folders you visited?

Which ones have you tried so far? – Karan Jan 2 '13 at 22:03
I've tried DirectoryOpus, xyPlorer, xPlorer2, FreeComander, CubicExplorer, DoubleCommander, QT-Tabbar, Q-Dir, Explorer++, UltraExplorer and probably several others too. This was over a period of several years in the past. I've just been on the search on and off and just thought of asking the collective intelligence here. – JohnC Jan 2 '13 at 22:13

I am not using Windows 7 but I remember you can access the recently visited folder by right-clicking the icon on the superbar.

Edit: You may want to look at Unreal Commander. Alt+Down shows the history of directory visited even after you close the file manager.

I'm looking for a file manager -- this isn't really what I'm looking for. – JohnC Jan 3 '13 at 3:25
Edited my answer to suggest a file manager – elwc Jan 3 '13 at 3:37

Directory Opus and XYplorer have recent folder lists. In XYplorer it's in Go > Recent Locations... and I know it's in Directory Opus but don't have it installed at the moment so I can't tell you where exactly.
