    Try Settings - Personalisation - Start. The last toggle in the list is 'Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or taskbar'.

    Ok , so i'm kind of understanding what happens.
    When the "Show Recently Files In Quick Access" is unchecked it doesn't shows the "recent" on file explorer.
    But when it's checked , it shows the folders but only if you're open some file on same folder.
    It should be like?
    Can't i leave it off and also have the recent folders?

    Yes, that's the way it's designed to work. If you want your folders to remain in Quick Access after you turn off 'Show frequently used folders In Quick Access' then you can pin them to Quick Access.
