Creating a File Shortcut in Office Applications

I think that you will love this neat little shortcut that I have been using, if you don’t know about it already. Follow the instructions below to add a shortcut link on the system file menu screen for any Microsoft Office Applications.

  1. Go to the Start menu and click Computer.
  2. Travel to the file folder location you want to have appear in the Favorites Links on the left side of the Computer screen.
  3. Drag that file folder to the listing of links.
  4. Reposition the link as you desire in the list.

This little tip makes traveling to files on your computer easy by having file folders or even files within easy reach every time you use the Computer link.

There are some situations when you cannot add a shortcut to the list that appears in Windows. Usually this is when you are not within your user settings such as when you are accessing network locations or drive letters. But while you are in any Office Applications you will be able to see your own personal shortcuts to navigate faster to the things you use most.
