In Windows Vista, how can I control the Favorites that I see in many dialog boxes?

A. In Vista, as well as many of Microsoft’s current applications (e.g., Office 2007, Microsoft Expression Web), the file-operation dialog boxes have a Favorite Links section, as does the Windows Explorer interface. To add a new folder to this area, you can just select a location and drag it to the Favorite Links area. A shortcut will automatically appear. These shortcuts are actually stored in your profile’s Links folder (e.g., C:\Users\john\Links). If you open this folder, you can easily delete entries you that don't want to show. Alternatively, within the Favorite Links area, you can right-click a link and select Remove Link
