Using Favorites

It is possible to save regular destinations such as your USER1 account by selecting the star icon that appears when you hover your cursor over your selection.  Selecting the star creates a Favorite, which can be quickly accessed under Favorites in the left margin.

NOTE: System updates, which happen regularly, can clear the Favorites menu, requiring you to reset your Favorites periodically.
