I don't think it's possible without custom start menu.
But ,you can add custom folder using favourites trick.
As you can see on image you posted there's a folder called Favorites.

Method 1:
To get this :
Right click on taskbar > Properties > Start menu tab > Customize > Scroll down util you find Favorites menu and tick it > OK > OK
To add custom folder :
Right click on Favorites (in start menu)> Location > paste a link of folder location you wish to add

Method 2:
Right Click on your start button > Properties > Customize > Scroll down until you find Recorded TV > set it to Display as Link > Open Start Menu > right click on Recorded TV > click Properties> Remove all folders there > *To add a folder > Click on Include a folder and find folder you wish to display in start menu.
After you add your folder to rename you Recored TV:
Right Click on Recorded TV > Rename

There are some scripts on the internet that will allow you to display your folder instead of some other folder (like Pictures) but it can also mess things up.
