This blog WAS about my experiences with the new Microsoft Vista OS. I went back to Windows XP, so I'm no longer updating it. However, I decided to leave it on-line, at least until Vista is officially released. There may be a few tips here that will help other beta users.

Modifying Favorite Folders Pane

By default, Vista shows a list of your favorite folders in the left pane of Windows Explorer. If you would like to add or remove links, you can right-click inside the pane and choose "Open Folder."

Next, you need to go to the folder that you want to add, and create a shortcut to it. By default the shortcut is placed on the Desktop.

Then just cut the folder from the Desktop, and paste it into the Favorites folder.

From here, you can rename it, reorganize it (by dragging and dropping), etc.

If anyone knows of an easier way to do this, please let me know. It seems kind of awkward to have to do it this way all the time.
