    Add Recent Folders and/or Links/Favorites to Navigation Pane


    I hope I'm not duplicating known information here. I've seen adding shortcuts for these folders to Quick Access, but not rooted in the Navigation Pane. Here is what I've got now:

    Add Recent Folders and/or Links/Favorites to Navigation Pane-screenshot-18-.png

    Critical info regarding display in Navigation Pane was found here:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx

    Critical info regarding the appropriate flags for display in Open/Save dialogs was found here:

    https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...-vanishes.html

    These files work on a per-user basis. This avoids having to deal with Ownership/Permissions issues of the CLSIDs under HKLM.

    So here are the files:

    Links-Add to NavPane-Per User-32-bit.reg
    Links-Add to NavPane-Per User-64-bit.reg
    Recent Folders-Add to NavPane-Per User-64bit.reg
    Recent Folders-Add to NavPane-Per User-32bit.reg

    Fist time adding Screenshot & attachments here -- hope I got it right!

    Keith, great job and great work!

    Thanks so much for making these instant fixes available.
    Two clicks and "Recent Folders" was installed in my NavPane in my local language.

    This is going to make my life so much easier!
    thanks

    You're welcome, Cimaise. It was a fun exercise to figure it out. I learned a lot in the process!

    They should be showing in File Explorer as well...

    Can you post an export or screenshot of HKCR\CLSID\{22877a6d-37a1-461a-91b0-dbda5aaebc99}
