MS Windows 8.1 : Add shortcut to This PC Explorer sidebar

I'm going to share a very small and easy trick which can be used to add any desired shortcut, file or folder in This PC Explorer sidebar in MS Windows 8.1.

Type following string in RUN (Win+R) or start menu search box and press Enter:
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts
It'll open "Network Shortcuts" folder.
You can also directly open the same folder by typing Network Shortcuts in Explorer addressbar and press Enter.
Now what you have to do is simply create shortcut to the desired folder and PASTE it in this "Network Shortcuts" folder. You can also paste file shortcuts or simply move the original file in this folder.
