Add a folder to Favorites group in Windows 7

If you access a folder very often to work on files in it, or save files in it, then you can add this folder to the Favorites group in the Windows Explorer for easy access. The Favorites group is shown at the top-right navigation pane in the Windows Explorer. Here is how :

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate the folder you want to add to the Favorites group.
  2. Click once on the folder to select it.
  3. Drag the selected folder to the Favorites group as shown in the following picture :

  4. When you drag the file over, you will see a tooltip appear which says Create link in Favorites. This is when you should release the mouse button. You would immediately see the link being created in the Favorites group.

If later you decide that you no longer need to access that folder so often, then you can remove the link by right-clicking on the folder link under Favorites group and selecting Remove.
