    Organize Navigation pane Win 8.1


    ok I'm OLD AND a Newbie...(worst combination ever) and my navigation layout is a mess. I have multiple Desktops, Documents, OneDrive, Downloads, ETC. located in random places. I need a SIMPLE organized
    layout i.e.,

    Favorites- (Desktop-Downloads-Recent Places, etc.?)

    OneDrive- (Docs +

    Google Drive- (Docs +

    This PC- (Documents-Music-Photos-etc.?)

    then:
    Local Disk (C (Apps Windows System Settings Devices, etc?)
    Elements (D
    Homegroup
    Network
    Is a simple/similar layout to this possible? No Libraries please. I would appreciate advice and suggestions very much...
