Add Folders to Favorites in Windows Explorer

Joseph Knight -

We often have to access the same folder on our computer or on a network shared drive to view, update or create documents. Instead of mapping to the folder each time, you can easily create a shortcut to the folder within your Windows Explorer window.

The following article shows how to add and remove shortcuts in the Windows Explorer window on your computer.

1. Open a Windows Explorer window and browse to the folder that you wish to add as a shortcut.



2. Click on the folder and drag it to the Favorites group of folders. Make sure you see the line that indicates that the dragged folder will be inserted between existing folders. Do not drop the folder in an existing folder, otherwise it will display in that folder, not in the list of Favorite folders.


3. After adding the folder to the Favorites list, it should always be displayed there. If you wish to remove a folder from the Favorites list, right-click on it and select Remove.
