Selecting a table directly in phpMyAdmin

After opening a database with phpMyAdmin all the tables in the database are displayed in the right pane:
 
phpMyAdmin tables
For something like multisite WordPress (above) there could be 250 tables. I'm often interested in the wp_users table, which is a couple of hundred down, but I haven't found a way to open it directly, so I'm always scrolling all the way down and then selecting it.  Is there a way to open a specific table directly in phpMyAdmin?

Thanks

You can add that table to favorite list. Just locate the table and click on the star icon to add this to favorite list. And next time just go to favorites list left top "Favorites"

Actually, this isn't working as well as I thought.  After clicking the star for the table, the table is available under Favorites as long as I stay c onnected to phpMyAdmin.  But if I shut down phpMyADmin and then open it up again, no favorites are set.

No phpMyAdmin saves this data in DB so there is no chance of loosing this Favorite list when you log in again.
