Do you find it aggravating having to re-enter or re-find folders you commonly use in Windows XP Explorer?  Wish there was a way you could remember your most-used, or favorite, folders? 
You can save shortcuts to folders in your Favorites just as you save bookmarks to web pages.

  1. Open a folder, then choose "Favorites" - "Add to Favorites".

  • If "Add to Favorites" isn't there, then don't just click on the folder to open it.  Instead, right-click the folder and then select "Open". 

  1. Then choose "Favorites" - "Add to Favorites".

  1. Now, when you choose "Favorites", the "Add to Favorites" option will be there!
