I noticed using characters such as # ' = - is insanely easy. ~ @ +_ are with Shift, not too much trouble.
Prefixing special, important folder names with those gives you speedy access.
Of course there are hot keys to go to any folder anywhere, but this is more context sensitive, within a folder, or if you're in Explorer's Folders Pane and you have the whole tree open, you can jump between folders with these special characters. Expand everything in ROOT using * on the numpad:
ROOT\yad\da\= boom, you're there
ROOT\bla\bla\bla\# wohoo part II
ROOT\stuff\stuff\stuff\stuff\= boom part II
Now tap # and =
I dunno what Coding Snacks you could build around this, but spread this idea far and wide anyway.
