How to add a Windows special folder

Windows special folders are folders that are predefined by Windows, and include folders such as "My Documents" and "My Music". They can be inserted into the virtual folder hierarchy at any point, including the root.

They are added by selecting "Add root folder" (or "Add sub-folder") and choosing "Windows special folder".
