Recognize Folder Shortcut type in Add Data Dialog

Idea created by lee.davis on Nov 28, 2011
    The Add Data Dialog Box does not recognize folder shortcuts. I create many shortcuts to project folders where I store personal geodatabases or shapefiles. It would be extremely useful to be able to see existing shortcuts I've created and go directly to the data source. This is a basic functionality of any Windows open dialog. I'm not sure why this is not already possible.
