Has anybody written a widget to find and return file names. For example 
if I want to import an image or data file into mathematica, or assign a 
file name to a $Variable, it would be very convenient to have a function 
key that launched a windows style widget that permitted searching 
through directories (starting with My Computer or C:) and selecting the 
appropriate file. The full path of the selected file would then be 
inserted at the cursor.

That seems such an obvious tool that it must exist already, but I 
haven't seen reference to one anywhere. Anybody?
