Windows 7: How to display recent folders in recent items

How to display recent folders in recent items

I found that on the C:\Users\user1\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent folder, there are also the recent folder locations (aside from the recent files). Is there a way to display these recent locations as well?

This could be helpful in cases where I suddenly closed a windows explorer, and I need to re-open it quickly.

I don't know if this will get you what you want, but a right-click on the WindowsExplorer taskbar icon (if you have it pinned there) will at least show frequent locations...

Also the address bar in WindowsExplorer has some sense of history...
