  1. Open up the file manager.
  2. Navigate to the folder you want to add.
  3. Use Bookmarks->Add from the menu or press Ctrl+D. Alternatively, you can navigate to the folder above the folder you want to add to the Places menu and drag and drop to the left hand pane in the file manager.

To remove entries simply select an entry and press Del or choose Remove from the right click context menu.
