    How to add to 'Favourites' list in File Explorer?


    How do I add a website that will open in the 'Favourites' list in File Explorer? In the Home title, if I go to the 'New' section & click on 'New Folder' & type in the website address, that won't open at the desired site. I can open a website & right click & select 'Add to Favourites' ok, but that goes in the list of 'Favourites' on a website. Thanks for any help!
