As I said, that's not the one I was referring to (when I initially mentioned 'Favorites'.

comment Explorer open a library through command line
My user account Favorites folder contains folders like Favorites Bar, Microsoft Websites, MSN Websites, Windows Live. No idea, never used this.

Nope, I am talking about the list of 'Favorite' locations in the sidebar. The one with the star. By default it contains Desktop I believe, and if you install e.g. Dropbox it is added there.

That's weird, now they work. Maybe it didn't temporarily since I'm messing with the registry simultaneously for the implementation I just mentioned. However, explorer shell:Favorites opens up the 'Favorites' folder in my user account folder, not the 'Favorites' star shell folder.

The 'shell' syntax ain't working for me. The CLSID approach does. I'm currently programming a solution which looks up the CLSID. It is also important to take into account localization.

It seems this is possible by passing CLSIDs rather than a path, looking into how to get those now ...

comment Adding new folder to libraries extremely slow
I believe the cause might be I'm adding an AppData folder to my library. So if anyone else could attempt creating a Windows Library, and adding any empty folder located within C:\Users\<Username>\AppData to it to see whether it's really slow or not, that would be really helpful. :)

comment Adding new folder to libraries extremely slow
Well, that definitely helped me along a bit. It seems like adding a new folder to a library triggers the indexing process. The folder is added to the indexed locations. It's the indexing which is slow, so only indirectly the Library. Adding/removing an indexed location seems to be the bottleneck. I'm attempting to delete/reconstruct the index now, I'll report whether the problem remains afterwards.

@Bob Thanks, but it also occurs with newly created Libraries, so there isn't even an XML file in the folder.
