    Expand File Explorer's Ribbon/View,
    right click on desired entries and "Add to Quick Access Toolbar"

    or:

    right click an empty space within an Explorer window and go to View

    or:

    Alt+P for Preview Pane

    or:

    press and hold Ctrl while spinning mouse wheel.........

    Another alternative is "Old/New Explorer", which replaces the Ribbon with the classic Command Bar and has the Toggle buttons at top right.

    Download:
    OldNewExplorer 1.1.8 - StartIsBack+ - MSFN

    Extract the download, keep the extracted folder in your parent directory,
    Click the .exe as a standalone utility, make your choices and click 'Install' then 'Close'

    (These are my choices, of course; it has a readme file, read it!)

    Hi if you want full flexibility as regards recent files and folders and favourites, you'll need to consider a 3rd party program.
    E.g. Listary or similar.
    This has the advantage of making these available as standard in a wider range of contexts - e.g. open/save dialogues.

    Or use a 3rd party file manager.

    Qttabbar (free) adds tabs to explorer, and recent files and folders, but not I think favourites.
