Excel Tips Tutorial: How to Add Folders to the Favorites List in the Open Dialog Box
The Favorite Folders list appears in the top of the left panel in the open dialog box. This is an area where you can list your “favorite” or most used folders. The Favorite Folders feature is meant to make locating Excel files more efficient than browsing through all the folders on your computer. To learn how to add a file to your favorite files list follow the steps below.
- Press CTRL+O to activate the Open tab under File.
- In the Places list double-click Computer and the Open dialog box will appear.
- Locate one of your favorite or most used folders and click and drag it to the Favorites list.
Be sure not place the folder in Favorites and not in a folder that is listed under Favorites.
