Creating a shortcut

You can create shortcuts to folders and files, and even run executable files, from inside the Favorites pane. Favorite shortcuts can be copied, renamed, moved, or deleted just like a folder. You can even use an executable shortcut to start another application from inside ACDSee 12. You can also create a shortcut by dragging a file, folder, or executable file directly from the File List pane to the Favorites pane.

To create a Favorites shortcut:

  1. In the File List pane, select a file, folder, or executable file.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Right-click the item you selected, and then select Add to Favorites.
    • Click File | Add to Favorites.
  3. Type a name for the new shortcut and click OK.

Creating a new folder

You can create a folder, or an entire directory tree, in the Favorites pane to help organize your shortcuts.

To create a new folder:

  1. In the Favorites pane, right-click the Favorites folder, or a folder you previously created, and then select New | Folder.
  2. Type the name of the folder and press Enter.
