I have a new PC and can't recall how I made this work on my last one.

When I am in Word or Excel etc, and I click OPEN or SAVE AS, the Windows box
that opens to allow to select a path and filename, used to have my FAVORITES
Icon on the left side (along with My Documents, Recent Documents, My
Compuater etc).

How do I add the MY FAVORITES ICON (the star) to the left side of these
open/save windows for fast access

Thanks
