Windows 7: Pinned Windows Explorer - Show RECENT folders

Pinned Windows Explorer - Show RECENT folders

I have Windows Explorer pinned to my taskbar, when I right-click on it, I have the list of pinned folders at the top, and then frequently used folders below that.

I would like to change the frequently used folders to show the RECENT folders that I accessed.

Is this customization currently possible?

Thanks
