Click on "Carpeta Personal", create your Work file in Home (or wherever you want). Then right-click that new file and left click on Bookmark (or for you it's probably "Marcador" or something like that). Then it should be available on the left-hand panel.

I made a little slideshow for you: https://goo.gl/photos/Zvk4KbZ3iMnHkJH36

  • ok, thank you very much for the help and making the manual.

You can drag and drop the folder too. Just look for the cursor to have a green plus sign and a line to appear indicating where in the list the folder will appear.


Right click on the folder you want to add and left click 'bookmark' in the menu that appears.
