The Favorite Folders file folders extension lets you create the list of shortcuts to the folders you use the most often. Then, you can invoke this list in any file-related window of any program and access any of your favorite folders instantly in a single click. This is a good replacement for the tedious clicking to navigate to the required folder through the folders hierarchy. This resembles a list of bookmarks for your favorite websites in your web browser: instead of typing the URL each time you'd like to open your favorite website, you invoke the list of bookmarks and click that site's bookmark to get to it instantly.
You can manage the list of Favorite Folders shortcuts on the Favorite Folders panel. Then, you can invoke this list by clicking the special title button. When enabled, this button will be added to the title bar of any supported window.
Because most of Windows applications use the system dialogs for such operations as opening a file, saving a file and browsing for a folder, you can create the Favorite Folders list of shortcuts once and then use it virtually in any program.
