Can I add folders to the AWN "File Browser Launcher" ?

Asked by Phillip Steege

I have some folders I go to frequently, but they are down a few levels from the ones shown when I click on the "File Browser" Launcher.
Is there a config file somewhere, where I can add folders?

The File Browser launcher uses Nautilus' bookmarks!

Open a Nautilus window.
Use the "Bookmarks" menu entry!
Add/modify bookmarks from there.

Can also drag-n-drop into the "Places" side-pane, in the Bookmarks section. (Press F9 in nautilus to turn the side-pane on/off.)

Not sure if there are limits to the number of bookmarks shown by the applet, but I have 6 bookmarks plus 6 other entries and it's all good.

Thanks for the information. That solved the issue.
I just dragged the folders I wanted, into the Places side pane and they appeared in the File Browser Launcher applet.

Thank you for taking the time to answer this.
