You can open explorer, drag and drop the folder onto shortcuts and it will open up to that folder when clicked.

If you are trying to browse within Outlook, that will not work as that would be a security issue... think of the potential for virus and macro havok that would create!

If wanting to drag and drop files into an email to send, it would be faster to have it open in Explorer anyways, or use the browse feature in the file attachment interface.
