How do I set up Favorite Folders?

When I save a file, I would like to have a panel of my folders - like My Documents, Desktop, and all that, on the left of the dialog box like there used to be in Win XP. Is there a way of doing this in Win7, please?

Hello King Drax I,

If you wanted to add your user profile folder and it's subfolders that you mentioned to the navigation pane as a separate group, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.
User Folder - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane
If you just wanted to add the individual folders to Favorites, then this tutorial can help show how to instead.
Favorites - Links - Add or Remove in Navigation Pane

Hope this helps,
Shawn
