It's quite useful to be able to quickly add/remove items as Favorites with the context menu while in the Emby app (via WMC or elsewhere). I use this to keep, for example, a handy list of TV shows I'm currently watching, so that I can go to that selection rather than wading through all the shows I have. My son uses a list of Favorites in his movies.


In many cases, like the TV shows example, it would be nice to have a per-user checkbox configuration option in the Emby server's User settings to toggle the Favorites view option to be enabled when the user logs in. Currently, it's disabled by default and the user must navigate to the Favorites option on the settings bar (MBC on WMC) which, while not a lot of extra work, gets wearisome when it's pretty much my default first action for any given view.


I'm aware there might be sort order issues as per the comment in http://emby.media/co...-ehs-chocolate/ but perhaps the setting could be implemented in such a way as to toggle the Favorites view  after the user has entered the category view, when the option is checked in User config?


Thanks for taking the time to read through this! I've been a supporter for about a year now and I'm generally very happy with Emby  :)

Any update on this? I'd be interested in this too since I use my favorites list quite often.
