Navigate to the Windows Share in Nautilus using one of the ways described in the question. Nautilus is what you get when you click on the folder icon on the left.

While the Nautilus Windows Share being the active window, mouse over to the top panel to get to Menu > Bookmark > Add Bookmark The new Bookmark will appear on the left panel of Nautilus.

Hope this helps
