I want to add a couple of new folders to what I refer to as the places bar which is the left hand column of the pop-up when one selects file open from the home page.

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Reader forum so that proper help can be offered.

Your Reader XI is obsolete. Acrobat Reader DC has an entirely different open dialog with Cloud access and remembered folders.

This is an OS-wide setting. You can't set it for a specific application.

Are you talking about the Sidebar (Mac) and / or Quick Access (Win)? To add more locations, drag folders in Finder (Mac) or File Explorer (Win).

Hi Jane and thanks so much for the response.  I am using Windows 10 and I am fully aware that this reader is not currently supported by Adobe.  It is just my preference.  When you say drag folders, I cannot seem to get that to work.  I currently have 3 custom folders in the bar and need to add a couple of more. 

 

Thanks again,

Bruce

Reader XI doesn't use the modern Windows 10 dialogs with "Quick access". Refer to reply "This is an OS-wide setting. You can't set it for a specific application."

I know that this version of Reader is no longer available but I have 3 different "Quick Access" choices now that I use everyday.  How would they have gotten to this area please?

I doubt you'll find anyone here still running that old version. Your screen shot doesn't look like the standard Open Dialog though - in software of that age, made to run in Windows XP, there is a normally a fixed list of folders like My Documents. Maybe there is an app on your system offering extra features that we wouldn't see.
