Add a document library to favourites in Windows 7

It seems like everyone knows about the Open with Explorer feature, but often overlook its location can be saved to the favourites folder.  Doing so offers the following benefits:

  • Access to documents through My Computer/Explorer
  • Ability to save/open documents direct from MS Office
  • Attach files to emails just as easily as a local/network drive

Adding a document library to your favourites can be done in two easy steps:

  1. Navigate to a document library, click the Open with Explorer button
  2. Within the window that opens, right click Favourites and choose  Add current location to Favourites
