How to make a certain folder be seen at the top hierarchie level of standard Window dialogs (Open, Save, etc.)

Standard Window Dialogs (when to click on "Search in" combobox) show some menu entries at the most upper level of hierarchie. Normally one can see there:
- My Desktop
- Drives (A, C, D ...)
- Network
and some others

I would like to see a specific folder in this upper level of hierarchie. How have I adjust Windows settings to get it ?

I don’t know about settings, but IMHO it’s possible to arrange via creating a link on the desktop to your desired folder (as far as I experienced, you can see ALL folders on your desktop in standard dialogs at the highest hierarchy level):

- right click on the desktop
- pick in menu : New --> Link --> pick your target folder --> give it a name

Then check from some standard dialogs forms – the folder should be there.

Unfortunately, no. I don't see it in standard dialogs.
But such way I can access it with 2 clicks, it's better than before although isn't still perfect :).

OK, then try to map the target folder to a drive letter on your choice (make the folder shared before!) and you'll see it as a drive with this letter in the standard Save or Open dialogs. This time it HAS to be at the upper level, but you'll see it as a drive, not as a folder.
