Right-click on the Favorites menu and click Restore Favorite links.

Yes, that works too. :-) Not sure how I missed it. – oKtosiTe Dec 6 '10 at 17:56

Simply browsing to your desktop in Explorer, right-clicking Favorites in the sidebar on the left, and then selecting Add current location [...] should do the trick.

I don't see "Favorites" when I right-click on my desktop. – user3463 Dec 6 '10 at 17:53
In the Explorer window you took a screenshot of, Favorites is listed in de sidebar. Right click that. – oKtosiTe Dec 6 '10 at 17:54
That isn't clear from what you wrote, sorry. – user3463 Dec 6 '10 at 17:55
Well, if you're right-clicking your desktop, you didn't browse to it. – oKtosiTe Dec 6 '10 at 17:58
Awesome tip! I can use it to add other folders! I never knew that; thanks!!! +100 – JohnB Dec 10 '10 at 0:34

Can you see the Star favorites. You just search the desktop icon and drag the same to your favorites. It will appear in the list.
