    how can I include custom folders under This PC


    Maybe it's already asked, but how can I include custom folders such as "Dropbox" or "Google Drive" under the "Folders" of "This PC?"?

    The reason I want to include them there is because I don't want to have the same folder view type for all the folders, which happens when I open them via "Libraries" (I hope I explained this clearly ).

    if you using libraries - select the dropbox and right - add to library

    or you could create a new lib and add them to it
