    I've Googled a fair bit on this one and haven't got anywhere...

    In Windows 7, and on this occasion I'm using Photoshop, how can I add a folder (in this instance 'favorites') so that it appears in the left hand column of the 'save as' dialogue box?

    Many thanks.

    Ah...that's an idea!

    It's strange - while I was trawling the net to find a solution, it appeared that earlier versions of Windows could actually do this relatively easily? Forgive me if I'm incorrect :confused:

    copy the folder
    go to local disk drive C:\users\your computer name\favorites and paste in there

    that folder will appear on the left when you open favorites

    good luck

    Surely there must be a way to do it in Windows 7 without resorting to 3rd party software?

    @buzz123 Thank you for your suggestion - I have downloaded the application you recommended but not yet installed it. Rightly or wrongly, I'm always a bit reluctant to use software that tinkers with this kind of thing - ie an integral part of the OS' interface itself.

    Does anyone else have any solutions? It would significantly speed up my work process.
