In caja it seems there is no way to add a folder to the Places menu. I tried caja help menu > F1 but didn't get anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

This is in caja 1.20.0

in your home folder, inside .config theres a file called user-dirs.dirs, just edit that file to your liking. Heres a copy of mine

XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop"
XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates"
XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Public"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents"
XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures"
XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos"

Another method besides what @christian mentioned that does not require config file edit is to add the folder as a bookmark:

  • Step into the folder you would like to add
  • Bookmarks -> Add Bookmark

After you added a folder to the bookmarks, you will be able to drag-and-drop additional folders by dropping them on the Bookmark label.
