  • How to view your Favourites folder :
Step 1. Follow the above first two steps.
Step 2. Now tap on the Menu at the top Left.
Step 3. Now you will see Favorites Folder option. Tap on to see your favourite folders.

You can remove your folders from the Favorite list anytime.  To do so you just need to visit your Favorite Library. Now Select the folders which you want to Remove. Tap on Remove from Favorites.
