  • Hi falcios,

    We could set Windows Explorer to point to Favorites by the next step.
    Right click Windows Explorer icon\right click Windows Explorer\Properties\Shortcut\enter the high light words as the capture 2 shows.

    Notes: there is a space behind “explorer.exe”, then write /e.(with the coma)
    “c:\favfolder” means the path of folder.

    Best regards,
    Joy.

  • Thanks Joy for the answer.

    It now points to the Favs folder but on the right side of the pane it displays My Documents, can I have a different folder displayed?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    As the contains in “Favourites” is same with “link” in C:\Users\user name\Links. (change username with your account)
    So we could enter “C:\Users\user name\Links” in “Target” blank to open it when pointing to it.

    Best regards,
    Joy.
