Prior-visited paths would be nice, but I care more about helping the user along as they type a path name by hand, displaying matching directory or file names in the drop-down for easy selection. The IE File/Open dialog is what I'm after, or, even better, the Windows Explorer address bar, which, when dropped-down via mouse click, shows "Desktop", "My Document", "My Computer", etc.
