All Microsoft Office applications utilize the same dialog box for opening and saving documents. On the left side of this dialogue box is the My Places bar which is used to get to the desired location.
You can place additional locations on the My Places bar by doing the following:
1. Bring up the My Places bar by opening your Office application and selecting File and then Open. Right-click anywhere on the bar and select Small Icons. Now navigate to the folder that is to be placed on the bar.
2. Select the folder and then choose Tools then Add to My Places from the dialog box.
3. Clicking either the Open or Cancel button will complete your customization and the folder will now show up in the bar for all your Office apps.
