Pinning Custom Folder

Hey guys, tried search the forums for a solution but came up empty.

Anyways, i want to know if you can pin custom folders to the window below. I have noticed that some programs let you navigate through the libraries by default. For Example pinning Downloads, or My Documents.

Hello BTNH,

You can use the tutorial below to add a folder of your choice by replacing one or more of the 5 default items by entering the full path to the folder.

Common File Dialog Box - Customize Places Bar

Hope this helps,
Shawn
