I'm using Thunar. What i want is remove Networks since i don't use it, and add Lello below videos. I know if you right click on any folder like videos you can remove the shortcut, I don't know how to add shortcuts.

Openbox is a window manager (puts title bars on all windows and such). Thunar, Nautilus, PCMan, etc. are file managers. It looks like you are running Thunar, but Help→About would be a little more definitive. – msw Aug 21 '13 at 21:17
@msw sorry i apologize, i am indeed using thunar – Lynob Aug 21 '13 at 21:21

Under Thunar file manager, you can add to the shortcut pane by dragging items there as shown in the Thunar documentation.

Why don't we try the simple solution first? Why do we think that stuff are too complicated and feel compelled to ask for help (At least that what i do :) ) – Lynob Aug 21 '13 at 21:32
Umm… because we're human? ;) – msw Aug 21 '13 at 21:33
And because while drag-dropping items in the sidebar makes shortcut, dragging them to the desktop makes a copy. That doesn't make any sense, so you usually end up reading documentation instead of trying the intuitive solution... – Zim Jun 1 at 3:28
