How to pin a folder to this list?

Hello.

I don't know the name of this, so excuse the bad thread-title.



In the screenshot I right-click on the Explorer-icon, and the list pop-up.
If I right-click on any item in the list I can choose "pin to this list".
How can I pin a folder to this list, if the folder is not already in the list? (It seems that this list is populated by folders that are used a lot.)

Go into the file explorer itself, take whatever fold you want to pin to the list, and drag it down to the file explorer icon, this will pin it to the list.

The dragging will put it into the list. But to pin it, you actually have to click on the pin.
