creating a "shortcut" to a folder/project

hi,
it seems that I can't view my projects files under libraries.
since I want to have east access to them I was wondering if there is a way to create a shortcut for the folders they are at in order to seem them easily?
my folders are located in a very long drill down tree on folders and I want to have an easy access to all my project.

is there any way to do so?

thanks!

Hello Chen,

If you use EG 4.3 then File -> Resent projects contains a list of all your projects. Also, using Windows shortcuts you can have your project shortcut on your desk top.

Sincerely,
SPR

Look at the File menu. It contains the list of recent projects.

Are saving your projects in the SAS Metadata Folders, or Physical OS Folders?

I'm saving it in physical folders on the servers (I can't use the metadata folders, my company had blocked it).
my problems is that I have many projects and what I see as recent is not enough....

Can't you just create a folder shortcut on your desktop to where you have saved all the projects, or are they in multiple locations?

I haven't tried that yet....
I will try, thanks!

my projects are shared with other people in my team so I hope it'll work.
