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\yad\da\# wohoo

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. cheesy

i'm not really adding anything but i do agree that it is a useful tip. i've been using _ and . and ! for years to prefix 'special' folders, thereby making them sit higher in my folder trees.

adds a kind of extra hierarchy to folder organisation by making the special prefix character folders rest above standard named folders.

Requesting too many weird coding snacks can be hazardous to your health.
