Add Your Own Folders to Favourites in Windows 7

When you open Explorer in Windows 7 you’ll see a list of Favourites in the Navigation Pane. Microsoft has already put some there, but today we show you how to remove them and add your own favourite folders.

By default Microsoft has included some favourite locations for you that you may not want. The default locations are Desktop, Downloads, Recent Places, and Recorded TV if you’ve set up Live TV in Windows Media Centre.







To delete the locations from Favourites, simply right-click on the location and select Remove from the context menu.

Adding you favourite locations that you visit often is easy. While you’re in the folder you want to add, right-click on Favourites and select Add current location to Favourites.







You can also drag a folder over to Favourites to link it there as well.







In this example we removed all of the default locations and added four locations…a FLAC folder from a home server, My Documents, My Videos, and our Dropbox folder.

If you want to get the default locations back just right-click Favourites and select Restore favourite links. It won’t delete the locations you added, but will just restore the originals
