    Hello unko,

    The added Favorites will not show in the navigation pane under Quick Access, but only in the Quick Access window.

    Thanks Brink. This is then useless to me. I want the folders AND shortcuts of my choice to show up in explorer left pane, so i can either access these or drop files/folder on them. How can i do that?

    unko,

    You could "Pin to Quick access" your %UserProfile%\Links folder to do this though.

    That's for location, right. However for shortcuts of apps and script, what can i do? Is there a way that can display them, so i can drop things onto?

    Correct. Only locations can be pinned to Quick access and show under its navigation pane.

    I suppose you could pin a new folder to Quick access, and place all your shortcuts in it to make it easier to access.

    But I still can drop files onto my shortcut without opening a new window!

    Yes, you would be dropping them into a folder.

    However, drag and dropping to thin links in the navigation pane is a risky proposition. Dragging and dropping into wide open folder windows, yeah, but the navigation pane...... eh!
    Just a slip of the finger I've accidentally dropped many a file into the wrong folder and had to go hunting for them!
    'Cut and Paste', or 'Move To'/'Copy To' in the right click menu is safer!

    I do that for year. Multiple purpose. I really need to keep the ability of dropping things on my scripts, such time gain!
