xfce4-places-plugin - Places
Originally written by Diego Ongaro, this plugin is a menu with quick access to folders, documents, and removable media. The places plugin brings much of the functionality of GNOME's Places menu to Xfce.
The plugin puts a simple button on the panel. Clicking on this button opens up a menu with the following:
- System-defined directories (home folder, trash, desktop, file system)
- Removable media (using thunar-vfs)
- User-defined bookmarks (reads
- Search program launcher (optional)
- Recent documents submenu (requires GTK+ v2.10 or greater)
Just add it to the panel.
User-defined bookmarks can be modified with a file manager or by manually editing
You can configure the plugin by right-clicking on the button and selecting Properties (see screenshot below).

Here's what it looks like when configured to display a label:
The search program launcher looks like this:
And the properties/preferences dialog:
