Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, that method only works for program and file shortcuts, not for FOLDERS.
When you add a shortcut TO A FOLDER to "_hotkeys", the "Shortcut" tab is not in the properties box of that FOLDER, so no Shortcut Key can be assigned (unlike when a shortcut to a FOLDER is placed on the desktop, where that tab is available).
I have several frequently accessed folders on different partitions that I enjoyed the quick access to (back on XP). I suppose my only option is to place FOLDER shortcuts on the desktop, but the Shortcut Key function is unreliable that way.
Any other ideas for FOLDERS?
