There's an existing question for Windows 7.

Is it possible to add new "places" to the Open/Save dialogs in Windows XP?

It's possible under Mac OS X (10.6 is what I'm running), and apparently in Windows 7. How about XP?

@Sathya - looks pretty similar, but @stijn has a different answer than TweakUI :) –  warren Oct 14 '10 at 16:45
    
I believe tweakUI does the same, but nevertheless, I was just pointing that there is a similar question :) –  Sathya Oct 14 '10 at 17:05

modify to taste, save as .reg file, run it:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\comdlg32\PlacesBar]
"Place0"=dword:00000000
"Place1"=dword:00000011
"Place2"="d:\\projects"
"Place3"="d:\\downloads"  
"Place4"="c:\\"

first one is 'My Computer', second one 'My Documents'. Google PlacesBar for more.

btw, this still has it's use in Windows 7 since not all applications use the new file dialog.
