Known Folder GUIDs for File Dialog Custom Places

You use a Guid to specify a Windows Vista Known Folder when you add folders to a CustomPlaces collection. Known Folder GUIDs are not case sensitive and are defined in the KnownFolders.h file in the Windows SDK.

Note

In some cases, a Known Folder added to the FileDialogCustomPlacesCollection will not be shown in the Favorite Links area. For example, if the specified Known Folder is not present on the computer that is running the application, the Known Folder is not shown.
