Windows 7: Adding C:\Windows\Fonts to a library to do searches

Adding C:\Windows\Fonts to a library to do searches


First time posting, but I've learned so much here.
My question is I have about 8 folders with fonts in them that I use for different projects and they get installed and uninstalled as shortcuts as needed.
I use a library to all for searches for when I see a project with an interesting fonts in them.

Well something I discovered is that there seems to be no way to add the C:\Windows\Fonts to my "Fonts" named library to help with the searches.

Is there a workaround?

Now you can simply open the folder by clicking it in Favorites and do your search.
