Customizing Explorer sidebar

Can anyone tell me a way to customize the shortcuts that is represented on the left side of Windows Explorer? Thanks.

Re: Customizing Explorer sidebar

Are you asking about the Palces Bar, if so then read the article on "How to customize the My Places bar in the 'Open' and 'Save As' dialog boxes in Office XP programs" from the below link

Sue,

I just searched on MS KB and found this article, which does give the needed information

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826214/en-us

The important step seems to be using the Tools dropdown in the toolbar (top right) to find the Add to Places Bar command - a typically unintuitive MS thing to do; why it couldn't be in the shortcut menu, or somewhere more obvious only MS can explain...
