I like FARR and thought this idea might help someone else.

I like to keep FARR searches fast so I have reduced it to just .../Start Menu/Programs and My Documents. I then make shortcuts and add them to /StartMenu/Programs/Dan. This required several drags so I added  a shortcut to "Dan" inside of  SendTo folder.  Now I just right click any shortcut and SendTo Dan. If I want add non shortcut items to the searchable folder I make a shortcut to before sendto  Dan. This method makes jumping to folders or internet links FARR fast while having only a very few search folders.

To find other files I use Search Everything and its plug in.

very good.
note that if you didn't want to put the shortcuts to other things inside your start menu you could put the shortcuts in any folder on your computer, and add that folder to farr's search directory list, and then do everything as you are doing it already.
