How do I add folder to Ubuntu 18.04.1 Nautilus Bookmark list?

Ironically* I can do this via Open Project inside Eclipse, but Nautilus seems to give no option – not in right-click-menu, no Settings option, …

(*) This is ironic as I cannot add Eclipse to the left hand Desktop Shortcuts – another problem with 18.04.1

  • To add a folder to the bookmarks in Files (aka nautilus), either

    • Press Ctrl+d to add the folder you are currently in to the bookmarks list in the left pane (under the horizontal line separating the "special" folders, e.g. "Recent", "Home", etc.
    • Drag a selected folder to the left pane.

    You can see all defined hotkeys in Files when you press Shift+?
