How to default to a specific folder in Outloook

In trying to link contacts, when I click on 'Actions', 'Link', 'Items in a contact' item, it opens a 'Link Items to Contact' window that defaults to 'Inbox'.  How can this be changed to open a 'Select Folder' window that will default to a public folder or sub-folder of my choice?  I want to eliminate the need to scroll down to another folder and then have to expand it to find a specific sub- folder.  Can a command button be used to perform this function?  If so, using VBscript, can you give me an example of how the code would be written?

I have not tried it, but perhaps you could write a MACRO and set a command button to do this for you. Something like this:

Sub TestJournal()
  Dim myContact As ContactItem
  Dim myJour As JournalItem
  Set myContact = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)
  Set myJour = Application.CreateItem(olJournalItem)
  myJour.Links.Add myContact
  myJour.Display
  myContact.Close olDiscard
  Set myContact = Nothing
  Set myJour = Nothing
End Sub

The above is excerpted from the following thread:
