    Add folder under "COMPUTER"

    Can anyone advise if it possible to add another item under the "COMPUTER" label in the left hand column which comes up when selecting the "Home" folder.
    In the attached screenshot, I have added a folder called "My Photos" in the right hand pane, but I would like to have that included in the left hand pane.
    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on a Sony Vaio laptop.

    Thanks in advance

    If you open a folder and the in menus at top of screen: Bookmarks > Add Bookmark
    it adds it to Bookmarks, but not sure how to move that down under Computer. If I try to drag it down, it just pops back up under Bookmarks. And Edit Bookmarks shows the added bookmark, but not subcategories on the left pane.

    I used to know how to do that, but it must have changed.

    You can change the dirs by editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs
    But I don't know if you can add any bookmarks this way.
