Your Favorites at your Fingertips!!
My Favorites is an incredibly handy app that allows you to bookmark your files, folders, web bookmarks, apps, text notes and color swatches that you need lightning fast access to.
The best part of the app is that it lives in the top menu-bar of your Desktop and allows you to add-in unlimited number of shortcuts. The shortcuts can be to your frequently accessed files, folders, web URLs and even Applications. You can also add quick text notes and color swatches for the color codes you want to remember and have quick access to. Whenever you require access to these important files and folders, simply click on the menu-bar icon and select the item from the drop down list that appears.
All the bookmarks that you want to add to have quick access to can be grouped into various Groups. For example: My Apps, Daily Files, Frequent Folders, My Websites, etc. You can give custom names to the Groups and also add color codes for quick visibility and reference. You can also add titles to every book mark you add to for easy reference.
For even more faster access to your favorite items, this drop down list will open with a desired short cut key. To assign a shortcut key you need to go the Settings->Preferences and assign a short key in the available option. Once the key is assigned, you can use that for the drop down list to appear and choose any item to open.
Do not forget to check "Launch My Favorites at System Startup" to have My Favorites launch at System startup.

Ratings and Reviews
One trick pony that works well
I just wanted an app that would open my 10 or 15 most used documents in one click - this does the job.
My only minor comlaints are the menu bar icon is a little childish looking (especially out of place in Big Sur), and the purplish/blue background (why not just black/dark grey to fit in with dark mode?).

crashes in monterey
this is one of my go to apps, simple and easy. but it crashed occasionally in big sur, and now every time I use it in monterey (usually when scrolling shortcuts). it needs an update, but it has been a year since the last one. hope the developer hasn't abandoned this.
