Windows 7: Adding shortcuts to "open" window

Windows 7
Adding shortcuts to "open" window

Hi all,

If I click "file/open" when using the software I have at work, in the window that opens I often have to end up navigating through a complex folder structure to get to the file I want to open.

Is there a way of adding shortcuts on the bar on the left of the panal that comes up when I click open(which currently has these shortcuts):

"recent places", "desktop", "libraries", "computer" and "network"

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks alot.

Drag n Drop folder to add to the favourites.
You can r-click the folder and Add to libraries through the context menu.
Aah, just re-read your post, you mentioned files.
