    Interesting ability for your web browser.

    Place link to a folder on your hard drive in your browser favorites bar.

    Open your browser.
    Open File Explorer/Windows Explorer.
    Left click on the folder icon in File Explorer and drag it to the Favorites Bar in your browser.

    You can then change the name displayed by right clicking on it and selecting Properties.

    When you click it, a file/folder list is displayed in the browser, for of like an FTP display looks.

    Click image for larger version.

    Nice for quickly looking at folders you use on a regular basis.

    You can do pretty much everything here you can do from File Explorer, like open pictures, pdfs, launch programs, etc.
