Add Favorite Links in Windows Explorer - MS Vista

You may wonder how to add favorite link in windows explorer in Microsoft Vista. At least I do not get used to it when I'm switching from XP to Vista. The favorite links used to appear at the top menu but now it appears at the top left corner of your windows explorer in Vista.

Drag & Drop Method

  1. You can simply drag any folder that you want to put as favorite link and drop it to the upper left corner as shown below.

Copy &
Paste Method
  1. Right click to "Copy" the folder that you would like to add as favorite link.
  2. Go to "\Desktop\Your User Name\Links"
  3. Right click and click "Paste Shortcut" to paste the folder shortcut to the "Links" folder.

Note: You can NOT copy & paste to the Favorite Links directly.

To remove your favorite link, you can remove the link directly from the favorite link (i.e. upper left corner) or you can also delete the shortcut directly from the "Links" folder.
