Windows 7: change "save as" context menu

change "save as" context menu

Hi All
I have thought about this detail for long as I have often files I have to "save as" to a few " favourite" folders. How could I add those folders(links) to the 'save as' context menu("sidebar"). It would save me lots of time.
Is my question understandable?

Thanks

Hello win7go,

One option if you like, is to create links for these folders under "Favorites" in the navigation pane to help make it easier to select them while in "Save as".

Favorites - Links - Add or Remove in Navigation Pane

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for your reply.
Here attached an image from save as and one of the favourite's folder. Being able to add/remove/edit the shortcuts(e.g. customers) in the 'save as' 'sidebar' would just be an amazing time saver.
Is there really no chance?
