Windows 7: Library - Include a Folder

Sorry, Favorites doesn't have a folder tree available since they are just links instead.

I tried adding Favorites as a library folder for this, but Favorites is not allowed to be a Library.

Well, drat. Oh well, maybe in final release.

Thanks for trying to help. Really appreciate it.

Hi Larry,

Jacee had suggested to me a workaround that may work for you. You can create a new library named My Favorites, and you can copy and paste the shortcuts you want in there to use as Favorites with a folder tree. Afterwards, you can even change the library icon to the star to match. These are two icon locations that you can use for it:

Folder with star:
C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-1020

Star by itself:
C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-1024

Well, that looks easy enough. I have to give it a try over the weekend and let you know.

Thank you very much to you Brink and Jacee for all your help. I really like Windows 7, but there's just a few niggles that I don't fully understand yet, but I'm getting there. Can't wait for the full release.

Question: Has anybody figured out how to include a folder that sits on a removable device?

Hello Wolfgang,

It appears that it may not be possible. It says this in Help & Support:

However, I get this when trying to do so with a USB flash drive even though it is as it states above.

Folders

Problem:
When you add folders for your libaries, you add the subfolders, not the folder itself. Is it possible to add the folder, not the contents of the folder?

Extra information:
I am trying to sync my skydrive/school folder with MyDocuments folder. I can not sync the skydrive folder, because there are pictures in the skydrive folder itself, but if I add the school folder, MyDocuments folder gets flooded with folders, because there are a lot of them (unfortunally ).

Thank you,
