Windows Explorer Custom Shortcuts

As a software developer you often need to navigate from directory to directory, from your documentation to your build directory. Using Windows Explorer you can create shortcuts to jump from directory to directory. In Windows Explorer you can add the path to a folder in the Favorites menu. When you add a new folder as a favorite you will be asked to give it a name. Lets say you add the path to the documentations folder and gave it the name Docs. To jump to this location you can hit Alt+A+D. The D in the key shortcut is from the first letter of the name of you gave the favorite location. If you have also saved the path to your source as a Windows Explorer favorite with the name of Source, you can use Alt+A+S to jump to that location.
