Want quick access to a feature, sketch or mate without having to scroll or search the SOLIDWORKS feature tree every time?

Simply right-click the item from your feature tree and select Add to Favorites.

Note: Ensure you have the option to show the favorites folder from Tools > Options > FeatureManager.

This creates a SOLIDWORKS Favorites Folder listed at the very top of the feature tree with your selected items nested inside.  This way you can grab access to a master sketch or a commonly reviewed mate within seconds!

You can also build sub folders within the parent folder to group certain features together. To do this, select the features again, right click and click Add to New Favorite Folder.
