Experts-
In XP app, I could click on open - tools - add a file or folder to "my places" which would show up on the left panel of the window - kind of as a shortcut.  Is there a function in Win7 that serves that same purpose?
Thanks.

Well, I may be wrong.  This page says it works for all versions of Windows:

Yes. If you open up Windows Explorer in Windows 7, you should see an area on the left hand side called "Favorites". These "favorites" are shortcuts to locations on your hard drive. You can add additional favorites by navigating to a folder, then right clicking on the Favorites icon and choosing "Add current location to Favorites". See attached pictures.
