    Adding Custom Folders To 'This PC'


    Hello everyone,

    I am aware of the Quick access menu but I disabled it, I want to add a folder to the 'This PC' drop down that is not a folder by default. I forget how I did it in Win7, I think I renamed a default folder I was not using but I do not think I can do that this time. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I was hoping there was a method without installing 3rd party software, I did see this solution on Google.

    A note: such small programs usually come about because a particular feature desired is not available in the Operating System.

    I gave it a shot, I am impressed. I was able to use it as a portable and not even install it! It allowed me to do other things I wanted as well, such as remove OneDrive and Quick Access completely from my navigation pane.

    Still working for me, and I also have the 2017 version of AeroTweaker so I assume it still works if you have the older version to use.

    So sorry, evidently it is a problem with my new dell xps. Anything on the right of the screen is missing. I've tried changing the resolution, but nada.

    I have the same question. Is it possible without using third party apps?
