If you are regularly accessing a windows folder for your work then you can create folder shortcut and place it on the desktop. This would reduce the extra steps required to access the folder using the Windows Explorer.
Go to your Windows Desktop and right click on the desktop. This would display the following menu and navigate New from the menu list and select Shortcut from the menu list.
This would display the below Create Shortcut window.
Now specify the folder for which you want to create a shortcut by using the Browse button and navigate to required folder.
Click on the Next button and provide a name to the new folder shortcut.
Click on the Finish button. Now you should have a new desktop shortcut pointing to your Windows folder location.
