    How do I replace Windows 8.1 frequently visited folders to

    An example:

    Unlike the previous OS I've had (Win7), instead of showing me recently visited folders, it only provides me with a list of my most frequently visited folders. It is comfortable, I'll admit. But why do I need this when I have the ability to pin folders? I would rather have my recently visited folders instead if possible.

    thank you lads

    Same thing I posted at SF:

    I would guess from reading this,

    The difference between frequent and recent is,

    This will show you how to turn on or off storing and displaying of recent items in taskbar Jump Lists and frequent places in File Explorer,
    I'm not sure if you can change it honestly.

    I use

    Classic Shell . . . Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements


    7+ Taskbar Tweaker . . . 7+ Taskbar Tweaker - RaMMicHaeL's Blog

    Maybe selecting the Jump List in 7+ Taskbar Tweaker will get you what you want.

    It's nice to be able to move the programs around on the Taskbar, also.
