I am having Adobe Reader 8, Windows XP Professional SP 2
In the MS Word, in the File Open dialogue box, I can put a name of a particular folder on the left hand side vetical list -> something likfe 'Fovorites' concept. This saves me time in navigating through a long hierarchy of tree structure of the folders. Unfortunately, I can not find such feature in Adobe Reader 8. This results in me having to spend at least half a minute in locating my folder in the disk.
Reader uses the XP Common Dialogues (File Open, Save...), which are
used wherever an application doesn't have its own. You can customize
these by editing the registry or (more simply) using Microsoft's
Install it and configure the Places Bar through Common Dialogs -
Places Bar - Custom Places Bar.
Changes you make will be system-wide.
