Hello bjproc,

You might see if the tutorial below may work better for you if you would like to have your user folder as a separate group in the navigation pane in Windows Explorer.
User Folder - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane
If you just wanted to add your user folder under Favorites, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.
Favorites - Links - Add or Remove in Navigation Pane
Hope this helps,
