Folder Shortcuts in Far Manager

You can quickly jump to your favorite folders in Far Manager by pressing right Control + 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on.

Adding a shortcut is very simple:

  1. Go to your favorite folder in Far Manager
  2. Press Ctrl + Shift + 1 (or 2, 3, 4, 5, …)

Now you can press right Ctrl + 1 to jump to that folder.

You can view all your folder shortcuts by pressing F9 to open the top menu, then C to open Commands submenu, then D:

I have right Ctrl + 1 assigned to my temp folder, I gave it 1Temp name so that it’s always on top and also to remind me that it has 1 as shortcut. Usually I put there files and folders that I’m going to upload somewhere. I train myself to delete everything from that folder from time to time.

You can assign more than folder to a single shortcut. In this case Far Manager would show you a menu with all folders when you press that shortcut. I have folders that I use from time to time assigned to right Ctrl + 0 (zero). Typically they are so deep in the file system that it would be too long to navigate there the normal way:
