Folders is expected to be a menu like

/pos text /dontrun /noedit
P&rogram Files :key "c:\program files"

I trigger FileDialog on Ctrl+; to get a list of common folders within any file/folder dialog and when navigate the dialog to the selected folder with a single keystroke.

I'm fairly new to QM, so please let me know of any improvements.
